An easy way to make Korean BBQ without a grill! These gluten-free Korean Doenjang Pork Skewers are sweet and salty, flavored with garlic, sesame oil, ginger and most importantly doenjang, a Korean fermented soybean paste. Doenjang is funkier and more savory than miso. And caramelizing the pork on a hot pan brings some of the smoke and char of a grill without needing one. Finish by wrapping these skewers in lettuce and serve with a side of green onion salad or some of your other favorite banchans!
Yield: 10-12 skewers
2 Tbsp of doenjang
1 Tbsp of rice syrup or honey
1 Tbsp of mirin
½ Tbsp of toasted sesame oil
1 Tbsp of asian chives, or green onion
2 tsp of minced garlic, about 4 cloves
½ of a medium sized onion, minced
1 tsp of minced ginger
1 Tbsp of oil
1 tsp toasted sesame seeds-optional
