Ingredients edit

Procedure edit

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a big bowl. Marinate for at least 30 minutes, but marinating overnight will get the best flavor and tenderization.
  2. Grill the beef.
  3. Serve with rice.

Notes, tips, and variations edit

  • Use same amount of soy sauce and sugar.
  • If you do this a day ahead, reduce the amount of soy sauce and don't forget to put it in a refrigerator.
  • Use thinly-sliced beef, available specifically for Bulgogi in some grocery stores, for best results.
  • You can grill this on a table top, with a shallow pan. You can also use just a normal fry pan.
  • Grill over medium-high heat and have the juice of beef and vegetables on rice.
  • You may marinate the beef in cola (Coca-Cola works best) instead of using just sugar. The extra liquid helps the meat to absorb the marinade more quickly.
  • You can also add 1 finely-chopped or grated Korean pear to your marinade overnight in lieu of sugar or cola. This will help tenderize the meat.
