Low and slow cooking really seals the flavor, making these meal a family favorite!

Traditionally, Korean barbecue takes time to marinade and cook over an open flame. We know our readers are busy and usually pressed for time, so we created this Slow Cooker Korean Barbecue. Low and slow cooking really seals the flavor, while the meat becomes flavorful and tender over time.

We recommend serving it over brown rice with a sprinkling of green onion for a simple meal, or topped with a soft-cooked egg and kimchi to take it to the next level. Either way it’s delicious!
