Country Number Two On My Food Journey Is

Beef Bulgogi


*1 1/2 LB sirloin or ribeye steak

*1 TBS canola oil

*1 onion coarsely chopped

*1 green onion thinly sliced +more for garnish

*1/2 tsp. toasted sesame seeds +more for garnish

For the Marinade:

*1/4 cup soy sauce

*2 large cloves of garlic, grated or minced. I preferred grating this with a microplane grater

*1 1/2 TBS brown sugar

*1/2 tsp. sesame oil

*1/2 tsp. dried ginger or 1 tsp fresh grated ginger


Wrap steak in plastic wrap and freeze 1 to 2 hours. This will help with cutting the steak.

Right before the steak is ready to come out of the freezer, in a small bowl combine the ingredients for the marinade; set aside.

Take out the steak and blot dry with paper towels.

With a sharp knife slice against the grain in thin strips. Place the steak strips in a deep dish or a zip top bag. Pour the marinade over the steak and mix well making sure to cover all of the strips of beef.

Cover the dish and marinate for at least 4 hours or over night.

In a cast iron pan add the canola oil and heat to medium high heat; add in the onions and green onions.

Cook for about 3 minutes stirring frequently or until onions are at desired tenderness.

Add in the beef with the marinade and the sesame seeds.

Continue to cook stirring frequently for about 5 minutes or until the beef is just cooked.

Garnish with more sesame seeds and green onions.

Serve with rice is desired.

    Korea is a great choice! 😋 For a moment I thought you’d opted for the beef dish from the movie Parasite, but that’s the Ramdon, a.k.a. Jjapaguri.

      I actually was considering that, but went for this instead. I still want to make Jjapaguri just to try it because in the movie it looks so good.
