  • About

These tiny kebabs traditionally accompany Korean grilled meats, like Korean Sesame-Grilled Beef (bool kogi). The grilling imparts a delicate charcoal flavor, while the foil covering prevents the garlic cloves from burning.


  • 2 to 3 heads garlic (for 24 large cloves)
  • 1 tablespoon


  1. Break the heads of garlic into cloves. Peel each clove (see Note). Skewer the garlic cloves crosswise on toothpicks, 3 cloves to a toothpick. Brush the garlic cloves with the sesame oil and season them with salt and pepper to taste. L
