Korean BBQ.jpgServe with  Kendall-JacksonHighland Estates Cabernet Sauvignon

To hold up to this full bodied, complex Cabernet Sauvignon we borrowed the intense flavors of Korean barbeque.  Kobe tri-tip is marinated and grilled before being wrapped in a lettuce cup from our garden.

Serves 8

  • 1/2 small onion
  • 8 garlic cloves
  • 1 C. honey
  • 2/3 C. soy sauce
  • 1/4 C. red wine
  • 2 Tbsp. whiskey
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1/2 Tbsp. sesame seeds, toasted
  • 2 1/2 lbs. tri-tip, sliced thin against the grain (or Korean-style ribs, ask your butcher to slice these for you)
  • 2 heads red leaf lettuce

Add the onion, garlic, honey, soy sauce, wine, whiskey, pepper and sesame oil to blender.  Blend on high until smooth.  Fold in sesame seeds.

In a large bowl, add the marinade and tri-tip.  Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Preheat grill to high.  Remove the tri-tip from the marinade and grill for 1 minute per side.  Remove from grill and cover tri-tip with aluminum foil.  Allow to rest for 5 minutes.  Wrap in individual lettuce cups and enjoy
