Learn How To Cook Bulgogi In 7 Simple Steps

By  | 

Bulgogi (literal meaning: fire meat) is one of the most common and popular Korean dishes that everyone knows. Back in the olden days, thinly cut beef was marinated, then grilled on a gridiron, but today’s bulgogi is usually cooked on a pan.

Try your hands on cooking this popular dish, by following the recipe below, shared by Food & Culture Korea Academy under Korea Joa 2015 program:




150g beef (sirloin or tenderloin)

50g carrot

2 shiitake mushrooms (substitute: any mushroom)

¼ (50g) onion

40g leek



5 tbsp water

2 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp pineapple juice

1 tbsp sesame oil

1 tsp sugar

1 tsp crushed garlic

1 tsp sesame seed

¼ tsp black pepper

*The sweetness of fresh pineapple may differ each time, so it is recommended to use canned pineapple or pineapple juice



Step 1

Thinly slice beef (about 0.3cm x 7cm) and use paper towel to remove excess red juice.

Step 2

Make marinade

Step 3

Slice carrots, onion and mushrooms. Carrots take longer to cook, so slice thinner than other ingredients.

Step 4

Slice leek diagonally

Step 5

Combine 1,2,3 and 4 and marinate for 10 minutes

Step 6

In a pan, cook (5) on high heat (no oil needed) for 5 minutes, then add 4.

Step 7

Sprinkle sesame seeds before serving
