Before K-WAVE took the world by storm, the average Singaporean’s exposure to Korean barbecue might have been limited to Seoul Gardens or small, familiar eateries. But these days, it’s a different story, and we’re spoiled for choice with more choices, from chain stores to new Korean restaurants that open monthly, to butchers offering gourmet cuts.

But sometimes, like chili crab, you want to eat it in the comfort of your own home. Relatively cheap, you can probably organize multiple dinners with like-minded friends who love KBBQ, such as a K-drama viewing party. Please try to imagine. You can do his KBBQ whenever you want.

In this guide, you’ll find all the necessary checklists for a successful Korean BBQ home party.

Before we get started, here are some general safety tips for a trouble-free at-home KBBQ experience.

  1. Keep your grill clean and change the foil at least once or twice to avoid large fires.

  2. Keep children and pets away from the grill.

  3. Do not place the grill under overhanging upholstery or near curtains.

  4. Never leave your grill unattended.

Well, that’s all for now, Amazon has everything you need to prepare Korean BBQ at home. Wait until Prime Day July 11-12 to check out the best deals!

smokeless grill

Of course, no KBBQ would be complete without a grill. For most of us who live in apartments, a smokeless grill is a way to minimize smoke and keep your clothes from smelling like barbecued meat for the next few days.

A proven and popular smokeless grill is the KITH Smokeless Indoor BBQ Grill, but why not check out alternatives like the Iwatani Smokeless Korean BBQ Grill or the Indoor Grill Electric Grill Griddle CUSIMAX.

banchanor side dish

What’s a show with meat as the main character but no supporting characters? Our favorite banchan comes in many shapes, but here are some to consider:

  • kimchi: The classic Baechu Kimchi (Chinese cabbage), Gakdugi (diced radish/radish), and Oisobagi (cucumber) are always recommended.

  • egg: Again, who doesn’t like gaerang jangjorim (soy sauce marinated egg), gerang mari (fried egg), and gaeran jim (steamed egg).

  • Gym/Seaweed: Seasoned seaweed salad made with doljabangmujim (roasted seaweed), miyeokjulgi bokkeum (stem of seaweed), and dried seaweed.

  • Gamja/Potato: All about potatoes: gamja sereodu (potato salad), gamja jorim (sweet and fragrant potato stew), gamja bokkum (potatoes in sticky soy sauce).

Don’t forget to add plenty of lettuce and shiso leaves for a well-balanced meal!

Drink

Recreate your favorite KBBQ scenes from Korean dramas, wash down a hearty meal with makgeolli and soju, then rinse your mouth with barley tea.
