Korean Beef BulgogiPrint Recipe
- 1 pound of sirloin steak, slice it thinly and equal into 4 pieces
- 2 tablespoons of sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons of sesame seeds
- 2 1/2 tablespoons of sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
- 2 tablespoons of garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup of green onion, chopped
- 5 tablespoons of soy sauce
- Take a shallow plate or dish for marinating the meat. Place the beef into that plate.
- Take a small bowl and make the mixture of soy sauce, green onion, garlic, black pepper, sugar, sesame oil and seeds. Add the beef to that mixture. The meat should be coated evenly and perfectly by that mixture, or the meat will be tasteless.
- After coating, put the beef in the refrigerator for an hour, but the best is overnight. It is recommended for everyone who wants to make Bulgogi start this step a few hours ago or the night before we start grilling the meat.
- Take out the beef you refrigerated. Start to preheat the grill with high heat. Don’t forget to lightly oil the grate.
- When the grill is heated enough, we can start to grill the beef. Generally, each side of the meat should be cooked and charred for 2 minutes, but it depends on its thickness. If you have used 1 pound of beef and divided it into 4 pieces equally, each slice should cook for 2 minutes for each side.
- Upon serving, you may add some vegetables. You can add some carrot and potato sliced into small pieces.
