What We Thought
I will begin this post by saying I have never had Korean food in my life. I am a small town Virginia girl who really gets into the comfort foods, soul food and had just never gotten the opportunity to try anything Korean before. I was ready for the task of creating a recipe that was easy to make but also satisfying for my entire family.
Enter in KPOP Foods and great Korean sauces and snacks delivered right to our door.
I instantly thought bbq and cole slaw for the sauces. I had a local Boston butt and thought it would be perfect for the actual pork portion of the BBQ, but how would I cook it? I had several options and knew the grill was out because it was COLD! The Crock Pot would take a long time to cook the meat enough to eat and then the last option was the Instant Pot. As seen in other reviews I have become quite obsessed with this appliance and love it!
The KPOP Sauce was added into the Instant Pot with about a cup of water to create a thinner BBQ sauce so that the meat could more less marinate while cooking. I tossed in the Boston Butt and it cooked for about 60 minutes. This piece of meat was a little on the tough side and I did check it at 45 minutes as suggested but it just wasn’t done yet. I natural released the meat at the end of both cooking sessions by the way for my IP loving followers.
Here is the finished product which I cut into thin strips instead of pulling like traditional bbq. (Thanks Mom & Dad for the beautiful plates.. We literally use these Fiesta plates every day and have for over a year now!!)
As for the cole slaw because here in the south you can’t have bbq without it I combined the Kimchi Mayo with some already shredded cabbage/carrots from Aldi. Added a little bit of sugar and some black pepper. It was that simple. The flavor was really amazing! Tossed this in the fridge to chill a bit before dinner and here is a photo:
Maybe a little more saucy than some people prefer, but my husband dove in!
A whole meal made in an hour and ready to eat. My kids ate the bbq up and we were all really impressed.
BUT– there is more–
If you think that KPOP foods is just about Korean sauces I have 1 more thing to share.
