Bulgogi Lamb Chops – 韩式酱汁烤羊排

The word “bulgogi” translates to “fire meat.” Traditionally, it refers to a Korean barbecue favorite, beef prepared with flavorful marinade, then grilled over a flame. For a twist, we used Pure South lamb rack, which happens to be grass fed, high quality meat.  Marinating the meat overnight ensure the meat is flavourful. It results in melt in your mouth tender lamb chops.  Grilling it in the comfort of your home’s stove top, brings out the big bold flavours of the bulgogi marinade that compliments well with lamb chops. The result is some serious finger licking bulgogi lamb chops that makes your mouth zing!

The meat is served with lettuce leaves and other veggies, hot pepper paste, and a slightly savoury spicy tart dipping sauce. Guests use all of the ingredients to assemble their own lettuce wraps, which is a common practice in Korean restaurants.

Pure South originates from New Zealand, where the environment is clean with little carbon footprint. Even the owners are farmers themselves, which show a lot in them bringing the best quality meats to consumers.
