Bulgogi is a popular dish in Korea using thinly sliced beef which is marinated for a couple of hours to add flavour to the meat and to tenderise it. This recipe pan fries the meat in the marinade, but it is usually cooked under a grill or barbequed over hot coals.
The cooked beef can be wrapped in lettuce leaves, served with rice or rice noodles and it also goes well with a little kimchi, a very popular Korean pickle (see our recipe for Kimchi).
- 500g beef, sirloin or rib eye, thinly sliced
- 5 tbsp sugar
- 125ml soy sauce
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed and chopped
- 5 tbsp Mirin (or a sweet sake)
- 2 tbsp sesame oil
- 2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
- 80g spring onions, sliced in half and cut into 3-4cm lengths
- 1 carrot, thinly sliced
Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl, except the carrots, cover and put in the fridge for 2-4 hours.
Put the beef with all of the marinade and the carrots into a wok or frying pan and cook, stirring regularly until the meat is cooked to your requirements. Remove from the heat and serve hot.
