I so love the Asian fusion food trend! Mixing Mexican and Asian, American and Asian… it’s like many amazing worlds of delicious colliding together creating even more cra-mazing tasty decadence. What did I even just say???? IDK But I do know that this Korean Slaw Dog is the best thing I’ve eaten all month.And that’s saying A LOT since I ate some Baked Nutella S’mores last week!! WHOA!

Korean Slaw Dog

Today I’m sharing some new and healthy twists on some old favorites. Thus the Korean Slaw Dog

Korean Slaw Dog

This is no ordinary hot dog my friend. But I’m pretty sure you can see that for yourself. It’s full of Korean BBQ sauces, spicy kimchi, and sweet and tangy Asian Slaw. Not to mention the yummy all-beef grilled hot dog and soft fluffy bun.

Drop the mic and go ahead and pick up one these babies! If you’re thinking this is too good to be true, it is and well, it isn’t! This can all be yours with a few ingredients a little bit of chopping, stirring and grilling.

Here’s what you’ll need to create this masterpiece: First and most importantly a good quality hot dog. Personally I like an all-beef dog. The hearty flavor stands up nicely to all this deliciousness we’ve got going on. Next you’ll need some soft fluffy dog beds, otherwise known as hotdog buns. I like the top sliced ones because they cradle that little puppy perfectly so it doesn’t go rolling out of the bun and off your plate. Plus it just looks much prettier so we’ve got fashion AND function.

Since this is a Korean Slaw Dog we’re gonna need a few more ingredients to take our dog westward: kimchi, Asian Slaw and kickin’ ketchup and mustard. Like I said this is no ordinary hotdog – oh no! It’s more like a haute-dog if you know what I mean?? (Yeah, me either.)

You’ll want to either buy some store bought kimchi or make your own. Oh and by the way, I happen to have an Easy Kimchi recipe all ready and waiting for you.

Then you’ll need to get your chop on and whip up some tasty Asian Slaw. It’s basically chopping/shredding/mincing a bunch of veggies…purple cabbage, savoy cabbage, carrots, jalapeño peppers, red onions and fresh ginger. And then mixing together some rice vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, sesame oil, sriracha, dijon mustard, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, salt and pepper for the sweet and tangy dressing.

You’re gonna need to do a bit more mixing for the kickin’ ketchup and mustard. I promise it will all be worth it very soon…

Score your beef franks three to four times on one side, heat up that grill to about 400 degrees and get those puppies cooking. I like to heat up my buns for 30-45 seconds with the cut side down. Now it’s time to assemble. Add the kimchi to the bun first, then the dog, slaw and finally drizzle it all with that delicious zesty ketchup and mustard. And that dog’ll hunt!

I think I have to say it’s the best hot dog I’ve ever tasted. The combination is really incredible if I do say so myself…the grilled smokey meat, spicy kimchi, sweet and spicy slaw and condiments…off the chain my friend. Seriously, the B man was showing no restraint – he put away four of these Korean Slaw Dogs like it was his job. Mmm mmm, finger licking good.

I’m thinkin’ it’s time for a summer BBQ, especially since I’ve basically done the meal planning for you with these Korean Slaw Dogs that are a well-balanced meal in every bite. What are you waiting for? Text your friends, invite them over ‘cause there’s no time like right now to enjoy all this deliciousness!
