This is an awesome recipe. It comes together fairly quickly, perfect for a week night meal. It is quite spicy, with the addition of sambal olek and red pepper flakes. So if you don't want it too spicy, cut back a bit. I have also made this like a stir fry and it comes out great. It's originally from http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/daeji-bulgogi-spicy-korean-pork-barbecue-10000000429502/. It's become a part of our dinner rotation. The prep time includes having to thaw the pork then freeze for a bit to make cutting easier. Although i just skip this step and cut it after it's thawed. Doesn't make a difference.
