Korean Beef Bulgogi

60 mins (prep 45, cooking 15)
14 ingredients
4 servings
Where I live, there are several REALLY great Korean restaurants, but I can't get over there much. I have been craving Bulgogi for a while. I found several recipes, but had to add and subtract to suit my taste. I think this tastes very similar to the restaurant I love. Banchan are veggie sides served with Korean food. Seasoned Mung Bean Sprouts--Sukju Namul Muchim, Kimchi, and Diakon Radish & Carrot Salad are just a few. Serve this over rice with the Banchan or alternatively in lettuce wraps with chili paste and rice. This should marinade for several hours or overnight. Marinade time is not included in prep time.

  • 1 lb thinly sliced beef sirloin (sliced about 2-3mm thick, against the grain-it is easier to slice when partially frozen. use a sharp)

  • ginger, fresh 1/2-1 inch piece (if you like lots of ginger, go for the 1in piece)
  • 1 medium yellow onion, peeled
