Bulgogi

This is a Korean dish that I learned from my roommate in college. It’s typically a marinated meat dish with top sirloin or any tender cut of meat. I prefer to grill the meat to get that smoky char-grill flavor, but it can also be cooked on the stove top as a stir fry with veggies. I hope you enjoy this dish as much as I do!

Time: 4 Hours Refrigeration + 30 minutes cook time

Serves 4-6

Main Dish Ingredients

2 pounds tender steak (such as top sirloin or strip)

2 Cups Hot, Cooked Jasmine Rice

1 yellow onion, peeled & thinly sliced

2 carrots, peeled & diced

2 Stalks Green Onion, thinly sliced (optional garnish)

2 TBSP Soy Sauce

1 TBSP Vegetable oil

1 TBSP Sesame Seeds

1 tsp minced ginger

1 tsp steak seasoning

1 tsp minced garlic

 

Meat Marinade

1/4 Cup Soy Sauce

1/4 Cup Vegetable Oil

3 TBSP Apple Cider (or 1 medium apple sliced such as Fuji or Royal Gala)

3 TBSP Brown Sugar

3 TBSP Rice Wine

1 TBSP Minced Garlic

1 tsp minced ginger

1 tsp Steak Seasoning

In a gallon size Ziplock bag, add steaks and marinade ingredients. Close the bag tightly and use your hands to mix the ingredients all around the meat. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight. Tip: I grab a small mixing bowl and flip the edges of the Ziplock bag around the edges to hold the bag steady while I pour the ingredients inside.

Prepare 2 cups of Jasmine rice as directed. I usually cook mine in the rice cooker and it only takes about 30 minutes.

Remove the steaks from the refrigerator and let sit (inside the Ziplock bag) for about 20 minutes, at room temperature. Heat grill to high. Remove meat from marinade and place on a plate. Discard Ziplock bag and remaining marinade. Place the steaks on the grill and cook until browned and slighted charred, about 4-5 minutes. Once done to your liking, remove from grill, arrange on platter, cover with foil, and set aside.

While the meat is resting, we will get our veggies ready. Preheat your skillet on the stove on medium high heat. Once heated, add the cooking oil and spread around the pan. I pick up my pan and let the oil swirl around and then set it back down on the stove top.  Add the slices carrots and yellow onion and stir. Cook them on high heat about 5 minutes. Turn down the heat to medium, add minced garlic, soy sauce, ginger and steak seasoning. Remove from heat and top with sesame seeds.

Slice the steak into thin slices. Serve steak & veggies over hot, cooked rice.

Garnish with green onions if desired. Enjoy!
