Ingredients
Marinade:
3/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup sugar cane vinegar
4 cloves minced garlic
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon ground peppercorns
Salt
5 pieces chicken wing or drumettes

Adobo Glaze:
1 teaspoon olive oil
4 cloves garlic
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon peppercorns
1 cup soy sauce
3/4 cup sugar cane vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons ketchup
2 teaspoons honey
1 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon red chili flakes
1 teaspoon Worcestershire
3 chipotle peppers
Salt
1/4 cup cornstarch
Vegetable oil, for frying

Directions
For the marinade: Combine the soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, bay leaf, peppercorns and some salt in a mixing bowl or container. Add the chicken and turn to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

For the adobo glaze: In a saucepan over medium heat, heat the olive oil and then saute the garlic, bay leaves and peppercorns until the garlic is golden brown. Add the soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, ketchup, honey, cayenne pepper, red chili flakes, Worcestershire, chipotle peppers and salt to taste. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes. Mix the cornstarch with water to make a slurry, add to the glaze and continue cooking until glaze thickens. Cool down and strain.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Take the marinated chicken and lay them on a sheet pan and par bake for 10 to 12 minutes.

Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees F. Take the par-baked wings and deep fry for 5 to 6 minutes.

Toss the freshly deep fried wings with 3 ounces of the adobo glaze.

Kogi Taco

Korean Style Tacos with Kogi BBQ Sauce Recipe

kogi-taco

This is a great way to use your leftover pulled pork or roasted chicken. The BBQ Sauce from Kogi BBQ was created by Chef Roy to be strong flavored enough to match the smokiness of BBQ’d pork or roasted chicken. You can add use kimchi (spicy pickled Korean cabbage) to top the tacos, or make a quick cucumber pickle like I have. The recipe for the quick cucumber pickle is below.

Serves 4

1 pound cooked pulled pork or cooked shredded chicken
12 corn or flour tortillas
1/4 cup Quick Cucumber Pickle (below) or prepared kimchi (Korean pickled, spicy cabbage)

For the Kogi BBQ Sauce
2 tablespoons Korean fermented hot pepper paste (gochujang)
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
2 teaspoons sesame oil

Whisk all ingredients together until sugar has dissolved and mixture is smooth. You can make this a few days in advance and store tightly covered in the refrigerator.

For the Quick Cucumber Pickle
I like using English cucumbers or Japanese cucumbers – the skin is thinner and they have less seeds. If you have a Mandoline Slicer it certainly will make the job much easier.

1 large English cucumber (or 2 Japanese cucumbers), sliced very thinly
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon finely minced fresh chili pepper (or more depending on your tastes)
generous pinch of salt

Mix together all ingredients. You can make this a few hours in advance and store in refrigerator, however the longer it sits, the less “crunch” you’ll have. I like making this cucumber pickle 1 hour prior, storing in refrigerator and serving it cold on the tacos for texture and temperature contrast.
