Learn How To Cook Bulgogi In 7 Simple Steps
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)
2 shiitake mushrooms (substitute: any mushroom)
¼ (50g) onion
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
Thinly slice beef (about 0.3cm x 7cm) and use paper towel to remove excess red juice.
Slice carrots, onion and mushrooms. Carrots take longer to cook, so slice thinner than other ingredients.
Slice leek diagonally
Combine 1,2,3 and 4 and marinate for 10 minutes
In a pan, cook (5) on high heat (no oil needed) for 5 minutes, then add 4.
Sprinkle sesame seeds before serving
