Take your grilling FLAVOR to the next level!

After the exclusive family dinner for my graduates last Friday,  my kumares and some  neighbors were asking for a treat to celebrate my kids graduation. I was really ashamed of not inviting them, I think explaining to them that the dinner was solely a family matter will not help, I could sound I give in. Thus, earlier today,  on Palm Sunday...they came over for a lunch treat!

I prepared for them a grilled meat dish – a beef bulgogi! Since my kumares and neighbors are Korean tele-novela followers, I ought to treat them for a Korean dish.

It’s really a simple dish, I bought two kilo of  beef loin. I give my meat vendor a hard time because I told him to slice the beef ala sukiyaki style (very, very thin cut to quickly grilled the beef), ha-ha! I  cut the beef into squares, washed and marinated the beef  overnight - in ½ cup of soy sauce, 4 tablespoon of honey, 1 whole grated white onion, 1 teaspoon grated ginger, 3 gloves grated garlic, 1 teaspoon black pepper and lastly 5 tablespoon of sesame oil.

Then  today,  close to lunch time, we enjoyed and made fun of grilling and eating the bulgogi! I partnered the bulgogi with a lettuce salad. I used two small head of iceberg lettuce, five pieces of tomatoes, two pieces of salted eggs, and a simple dressing - a mix of  five calamansi juice and four tablespoon of olive oil.

On top of chit-chatting, my kumares and neighbors ate ravenously, ha-ha! We had a feast and we really had fun! But, I have one thing to confess, please don’t tell this to my kumares and neighbors. I am not pleased with my bulgogi. I told them that it was an authentic Korean dish, like the dish they saw in Korean tele-novelas. But I lied. There is something  missing with the flavor...a  genuine bulgogi flavor!

Hah, I think I should take my grilling flavor to the next level. I should have used this Korean BBQ Seasoning Mix by McCormick. Each pack of McCormick Korean BBQ Seasoning Mix gives a wonderful blend of authentic McCormick herbs and spices.

The famous Korean dish Bulgogi, which means “fine beef”, is now readily available to savor with your grilled beef, pork and chicken with McCormick Korean BBQ Seasoning Mix.  It has the right mix of bulgogi marinade of soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic and other spices to easily provide you an appetizing Korean meal

Oh, I am so dead, I should have known this!

And looking through McCormick FB page, I have found out a worthy event that I think should need to attend.

McCormick will hold an event which highlights their Grill Mates line.  Dubbed as the McCormick Grill Nation, the event will feature McCormick's different seasoning mixes through serving grilled meats that all attendees can enjoy!  Let us be part of  this event on April 7, 2013, 4pm, at Bonifacio High Street, Lane O cor. 9th Avenue, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.

I shouldn't miss this event if I want to take my grilling flavor to the next level! I’m sure I will learn a lot in this event to fix my grilling lapses ha-ha! Next time that I will invite my kumares and neighbors for a lunch, I am more confident for a grilling session!
