Sweet and Spicy Korean Rice Bowl

This is one of my favorite ways to use the Southern Art Spicy Korean BBQ Sauce - it's not too spicy and not too sweet. You can top it with seasonal vegetables. If you're not the biggest fan of pork, you can also substitute with chicken or even firm tofu to go meatless. You'll want to marinate the meat overnight or for at least 12 hours in advance.


  • Pork tenderloin (or substitute with chicken or firm tofu)
  • Southern Art Spicy Korean BBQ Sauce
  • White or brown rice
  • Carrots
  • Cucumbers
  • Radishes
  • Green onions
  • Black sesame seeds for garnish


  1. In a large mixing bowl or plastic bag, place your meat or tofu and cover generously with Southern Art Spicy Korean BBQ Sauce and let it marinate overnight or at least 12 hours. If using tofu, you can marinate for 30 minutes.
  2. After marinating, grill your meat. Ideally, you would grill your meat over a charcoal grill for that smoky flavor, but here's a hack that my mom taught me that makes it so easy for quick weeknights and zero mess: heat your oven-safe pan to medium-high heat on the stove and grill the meat gently on each side until about medium-rare and then finish off by broiling in the oven on high heat on the highest rack for a few minutes on each side.
  3. Slice the meat.
  4. Assemble your bowl starting with rice on the bottom and top with meat and vegetables of your choice.
