I liked this as it is. But I believe the next time I make it, I am going to substitute the Asian pear for pineapple. The main reason is the pineapple has more acidity and will tenderize the meat a bit better than the Asian pear. All in all a very good recipe. I spent 2 years in Korea and this dish brought me back.
My whole family, 3 kids and all said we will have to make this a "regular recipe"! I couldn't find the Lg Asian pear, so I used a bartlett. All the asian ingredients were available at the grocery store. I want to make this again and will hunt for that Asian pear to see if there is a difference.
We enjoyed this, marinated for a full 24 hours. Great flavor, made up extra sauce to baste with during grilling.
