Campfire Hawaiian BBQ Kebabs

I recently went (car) camping. Due to some unfortunate weather and some falsely advertised accomodations, I ended up having to cook the majority of our meals over a campfire. Of the many meals we put down out there, I think that this one turned out to be the most outstanding.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I had a cooking show on in the background while hanging out with a friend. On the show, the chef happened to be preparing a tartare. Inspired by television, hunger, and what I happened to have in the kitchen, I threw this together.

Gochujang Chicken Tenders

I made dinner for a friend while watching the first ever College Football National Championship game under the new tournament system. In keeping with the theme of ballsports, I decided to go with a sportsbar staple with a little Korean twist.
