Korean girls try American BBQ for the first time! Pulled pork, brisket and American style pork ribs: The three main staples of American barbecue. We all know and love them, and their recognition has reached beyond the US. Through Hollywood and other media they have become a signature of American cuisine worldwide, even for people who have never tasted them.
In the last few years, Korea has seen a rise in the popularity of American BBQ-style restaurants. Even so, American BBQ is still a new thing, and most people have not tried it. That is why Digitalsoju made the following video, capturing the reactions of 6 Korean girls as they try pulled pork, brisket and American style pork ribs for the very first time.
So, let’s take a look at the reactions these girls had to their first American BBQ experience!
Korean girls try American BBQ for the first time!
First came the pulled pork. One of the first things that the girls noticed was the color of the pulled pork. While we have of course grown accustomed to the pink colored “smoke ring” that comes as a result of smoking meat, this is something people in Korea are unfamiliar with and initially mistook for uncooked meat. But this was quickly explained to them, and they especially enjoyed the pulled pork inside some bread, sandwich style.
Next came the brisket. This was closer to what Koreans have visually associated with American food, and the girls were very impressed by the texture of the meat.
And finally, the ribs. Those were welcomed with exclamations of awe and wonder, while even the make-up artist could not resist and joined the girls.
So, to wrap things up! While hesitant to try the foreign food at first, all girls absolutely enjoyed American BBQ. Some aspects of the cooking process and some tastes were uncommon to what they have grown up with, but most of the food they were presented with (especially the ribs!) met their expectations.
Well, you know what they say: “Love goes through the stomach”, and American BBQ is definitely food to fall in love with!
