I got the recipe from a Korean friend of mine, she said it was a family favorite and after making it, it became my favorite, too. Don't skip the dipping sauce, it makes the dish!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix ingredients (except meat) and set aside.
  2. Slice sirloin paper thin against the grain of the meat(works best if meat is not completely thawed).
  3. Marinade sirloin for 30 minute.
  4. Mix ingredients for dipping sauce and refrigerate until ready for use.
  5. Grill or pan fry, serve over rice with dipping sauce.

We had friends over for dinner. One was a Korean who hasn't had any authentic food for 9 months. Needless to say, she was overwhelmed with how it tasted exactly like her mother makes it! The recipe was very easy to follow, I did however let the meat marinate in a zip shut bag for two days, it definitely intensified the taste. As for the dipping sauce, I tripled the recipe for 4 adults, none was left. It was fantastic! My wife and I will be using this recipe from now on.

Outstanding. If pan frying, be sure to cook in small quantities or it will turn into a stew. Used boneless beef ribs. Excellent.

I created a account just to write this review! I have made this bulgogi recipe a number of times, it is now a staple in the household. I follow the recipe exactly, but I allow the beef to marinate overnight or maybe even a couple of days in the fridge. I love this over salad with the dipping sauce sprinkled on top. This is almost identical (perhaps better than) a Korean bulgogi restaurant in Chatswood. Love, love, love it!!!
