Diving Into The Korean Cuisine
From my first time to a Korean BBQ restaurant, I fell in love with the food and culture of Korea. The flavors are intense, spicy and refreshing! The combination of flavors in these Korean Beef Tacos is amazing – I love how all the different components come together so well. I combined three different unique flavors into this recipe!
I like to start with a home-made Korean barbeque sauce. This sauce is similar to teriyaki sauce but with a twist – it’s made with either apple or pear juice, which gives it a unique sweetness. Next up, it’s the gochujang, a spicy fermented pepper sauce, for my creamy sauce. This pepper sauce has a unique flavor from the fermentation process and adds both spiciness and flavor! And last up, the kimchi. No Korean meal would be complete without this fermented cabbage salad. Adding sliced kimchi to the cabbage slaw takes the slaw from boring to extraordinary!
Using Pompeian In My Kitchen
I love using Pompeian’s wide range of products in my kitchen – from their oils and vinegars, to their cooking sprays and cooking wines. For my Korean Beef Tacos, I use Pompeian 100% Grapeseed Oil, imported from France. It’s all-natural, has a delicate taste and a high smoking point, which means it’s perfect for browning the beef for this recipe.
Thanks to Pompeian’s ongoing commitment to quality and innovation, home cooks can depend on Pompeian’s high-quality olive oils and vinegars as a great-tasting base while exploring new flavors and ingredients. All Pompeian Olive Oils and Organic Vinegars are made in compliance with the Non-GMO Project Verified Standard and bear the Non-GMO Project Verified Seal.
