Re: Korean Beef Barbecue
One of the most popular Korean dishes, this thinly sliced meat has a smoky sweet flavor when broiled or cooked on the grill. It's even delicious stir-fried, and the tender beef can be used in anything from Korean sushi rolls (Kimbap) to Stir-fried Noodles (Chapchae). Bulgogi is usually accompanied with lettuce wraps and spicy red pepper paste (Kochujang) for wrapping and spicing up the meat.
1 pound beef top sirloin, thinly sliced
6 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 pear - peeled, cored, and minced
2 green onions, thinly sliced
4 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon rice wine
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
freshly ground black pepper to taste (optional)
1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine beef with garlic, pear, green onions, soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, rice wine, sesame seeds, fresh ginger, and ground black pepper. Seal, and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours.
2. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source. Brush oil over grill pan. Place beef on pan. Cook, turning to brown evenly, for 3 to 6 minutes, or until done.
