Beef Bulgogi

Good afternoon bloggers! Welcome to another exciting edition of Everyday Meals! Today we will be tackling a Korean dish called Bulgogi. Bulgogi is marinated barbecued beef, but chicken and pork have been known to be used. Bulgogi literally means "fire meat". It's also the terminology for how it is cooked, over an open flame. Bulgogi is said to have originated during the Goguryeo ear, between 37 BC and 668 AD.  Well, enough history. Let's get to the grill and start cooking!

Beef Bulgogi

You will need:

  • 1 pound flank steak, thinly sliced
  • 5 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2.5 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onion
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

  1. Place the beef in a shallow dish. 
  2. Combine soy sauce, sugar, green onion, garlic, sesame seeds, sesame oil, and ground black pepper in a small bowl, and pour over the beef. 
  3. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight. 
  4. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil the grate. 
  5. Quickly grill beef on hot grill until slightly charred and cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side.
  6. Enjoy!

See? This wasn't one of our normally longer dishes, but it is just as tasty! I hope you all had a fun experience and I will catch you on the flip side. Happy blogging and have a great weekend!
