Gochujang Marinated Wagyu Beef Kebabs

Updated: Jul 21


The other day my sons were snacking on pork dumplings dipped into their own homemade sauce primarily made up of a red chili paste that was both spicy and sweet. It was so delicious and inspired me to create a wonderfully flavored dinner. I mixed together rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, fish sauce, sesame oil, and of course Gochujang, the Korean Chili red paste. I marinated tender wagyu beef and then popped them on the grill. These kebabs were mouth-watering delicious, tenders, and so easy to prepare. My family loved dinner and has quickly become a new favorite.
