A few weeks ago I was contacted by Stephen Lee, owner of HVR Foods Inc. Based in Toronto, HVR Foods Inc. is a family owned company that recently launched their own brand called Seoul Kitchen that produces frozen packaged fully marinated Korean meat. As I am a huge lover of Kalbi (Korean Beef Short Ribs), I was instantly intrigued by the concept and did not hesitate to give the product a try.
Currently on the market, Seoul Kitchen has only released 2 types of Korean Meat (which I sampled both) – Korean Beef Short Ribs & Korean Spicy Chicken. These 2 frozen packaged Korean Meats are available at Nations Fresh Foods and PAT MART. Ready in 10 minutes, both the packages have clear instructions for different cooking options – barbecue/grill and stove top. Each package is approximately 1lb.
Each package serves 2 portions and there was plenty to go around. We decided to chop a few pieces of lettuce and cook some rice to accompany our Korean Meats. Seoul Kitchen uses authentic flavours and so my highly anticipated Korean Short Ribs was exactly the way I imagined it would be. It was marinated perfectly & tasted exactly the ones you’d find at a Korean Restaurant but rather – ready at home. The Korean Spicy Chicken was also a winner. Stephen had tweaked the spiciness of the spicy chicken to a mild level for consumers that may have a lower tolerance for spicy foods.
