Korean Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Kimchi Slaw, Grilled Sweet Corn on the Cob with Salty Coconut Cream

To close out the Summer, I decided to attempt to replicate what was possibly the thing I’ve eaten all year: The Korean Pulled Pork Sandwich with Kimchi Slaw from Heirloom Market BBQ in Atlanta.

For the pork, I decided to use this recipe by Bobby Flay but cook it in the Big Easy Oiless Turkey Fryer instead of the Caja China. For the Kimchi Slaw, I thought this recipe from Ambitious Deliciousness looked more interesting.

I wanted something else to serve with this… I thought about it for a while, and then I remembered Pok Pok‘s Grilled Sweet Corn on the Cob With Salty Coconut Cream – also known as Khao Phot Ping. You can find the recipe in the Pok Pok cookbook.

To drink, I went with a bottle of the Kili Wit from Logsdon Organic Farmhouse Ales.

Friday, I filled my growler with Apollo & Dionysus – a Gin barrel-aged sour Saison with chrysanthemum, jasmine and Szechuan peppercorns – by Breakside Brewing at The Growler Guys.

Beer-Marinated Flank Steak with Aji and Guacamole, Grilled Asparagus with Parsley-Tarragon Chimichurri

The Beer-Marinated Flank Steak recipe – as well as the Aji Sauce and Colombian Guacamole recipes – were part of the same Bon Appétit article “A Globe-Trotter’s Guide to BBQ” by Steven Raichlen where I found the Aleppo Chicken Kebab recipe. I decided to use a bottle of Double Mountain‘s Bourbon barrel aged Sinister 7 for the marinade.

The Grilled Asparagus with Parsley-Tarragon Chimichurri recipe is from Fine Cooking. There was going to be some Yuca Fries with Garlic Mojo, but the Yuca most have gotten over cooked when I was boiling it, and it fell apart. So it went into the compost.

I had a real hard time making up my mind as to what to drink with this meal… So, I decided to go with one of my favorites: a bottle of the Oak Aged Bretta from Logsdon Organic Farmhouse Ales.
