About the Recipe

Bulgogi Beef is a popular Korean dish that is made with thinly sliced beef, marinated in a sweet and savory sauce and grilled to perfection. The name "bulgogi" literally means "fire meat" in Korean, and it is a dish that has been enjoyed for centuries.

The marinade used for Bulgogi Beef typically consists of soy sauce, sesame oil, sugar, garlic, and ginger. Some variations may also include pear juice or apple juice, which help to tenderize the meat and add a slightly sweet flavor. The meat is then grilled over high heat, either on a barbecue or a stovetop grill, until it is caramelized and slightly charred.

Bulgogi Beef can be served in many different ways. Some people enjoy it as a main course, served over rice or noodles, while others like to use it as a filling for sandwiches or wraps. It is also a popular ingredient in Korean-style tacos and burritos. Many restaurants also serve Bulgogi Beef as part of a Korean barbecue, where diners can cook their own meat at the table.



  • 1.5 lbs Boneless Ribeye Steak

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce

  • 2 TBSP Brown Sugar

  • 2 TBSP Sesame Oil

  • 1 TBSP Minced Garlic

  • 1 TBSP Grated Ginger

  • 1 TBSP Gochujang

  • Olive Oil

  • 2 Green Onions Sliced

  • Sesames for garnish, optional


Step 1

Thinly slice the beef against the grain and place in a plastic ziplock bag.

Step 2

In a bowl, mix together the soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, and gochujang. Add the mixture to the ziplock bag and marinate the beef for anywhere between 20 minutes to overnight.

Step 3

After meat is done marinating, preheat a skillet or frying pan. Add oil to the pan and char the strips of meat on both sides. Work in batches and try not to over crown the pan.

Step 4

Serve over rice and garnish with green onions and sesame seeds. Add any additional toppings that you'd like!
