History of Korean BBQ

Korean BBQ has truly come a long way from its ancient tribal origins to the point of global popularity that it is enjoying today. Some historians point out that Koreans descended from the eastern barbarians of Maek, a nomadic group of people who left their territory in central Asia to go east.

The Maek group brought a special kind of meat dish with them so they could have enough sustenance to survive the harsh elements that they expected to face during their movement. The name that they gave to this meat dish is Maekjeok, and the meat cuts involved in this dish had already been seasoned prior to cooking.

The Maek’s cooking technique differed from the technique that was used to prepare typical Chinese meat dishes wherein the meat would only be seasoned after it has already been cooked.

What happens at a Korean BBQ restaurant?

Korean barbecue (고기구이, gogi-gui, “meat roast”) refers to the popular method in Korean cuisine of grilling meat, typically beef, pork, or chicken. Such dishes are often prepared on gas or charcoal grills built into the dining table itself. Some Korean restaurants in Brisbane that do not have built-in grills provide customers with portable stoves for diners to use at their tables. Alternatively, a chef uses a centrally displayed grill to prepare dishes to order.

The most representative form of gogi-gui is bulgogi, usually made from thinly sliced marinated beef sirloin or tenderloin. Another popular form is galbi, made from marinated beef short ribs. However, gogi-gui also includes many other kinds of marinated and unmarinated meat dishes, and can be divided into several categories. Korean barbecue is popular among Koreans, but has also gained popularity worldwide and in Brisbane.
