Beef bulgogi is a super delicious dish from Korea, and if you like meat, this is something you must try! It is made from thinly sliced slices of beef first marinated in a mixture of soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, sugar and other flavorings. The meat is then briefly cooked over high heat, giving it a nice caramelization and keeping it deliciously tender and juicy. To make the meat even more tender, enzymes from the Asian pear are used, and if you can’t get that, you can also use kiwi or pineapple juice. These contain the same enzymes.
The dish is usually served with rice and vegetables, such as carrots, onion, mushrooms and spinach. It is a perfect blend of sweet, savory and spicy flavors and has a beautiful texture, making it one of the most popular dishes in Korea.
If you want to make it yourself, you don’t have to be a professional chef to make a delicious bulgogi. The most important thing is to marinate the meat long enough for the flavors to sink in. You can also experiment with different vegetables and herbs to put your own spin on the dish.
