Slow Cooker Korean BBQ Tacos


Slow Cooker Korean BBQ Tacos


This recipe came about due to two things.

First, a friend mentioned having Korean tacos and how good they were.  I’d never tried them, but it sounded great!

Second, I wanted a homemade alternative to this Korean BBQ Mix.  We love this mix, but it’s nice to be able to make something from scratch too.

I did a little research and then altered the recipe for Slow Cooker Honey Hoisin Chicken to come up with this version of Korean BBQ Tacos.  I make no claim that these are authentic.  But I do know they are good!  Really good.

I used pork loin instead of beef or chicken, but any of those meats will work.

Here’s what you’ll need:

We also had the Korean BBQ meat served over rice.  We topped it with the slaw and a little diced red pepper, like haystacks.  You can also add other raw vegetables, like broccoli, carrots, onion etc.

  3. Thank you thank you thank you for a homemade recipe for the Korean BBQ mix from Campbells! I made your Haystakcs recipe using their mix and loved it but now cannot find the premade marinade in stores!! My sister in law is Korean so I know how to make some sauces and recipes and thought it couldn’t be that hard to make a homemade marinade. So excited to try this one as I wanted to have the Haystacks for dinner soon!
