READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Stacie Lora

Recipe is from I ate this often growing up. Having it cook my my friends mother who came over from Korea. While literally translated as "fire meat", bulgogi is a non-spicy dish that is a favorite of Americans and Koreans alike. Traditionally, it is eaten wrapped in green lettuce with Gochujang (bean-paste hot sauce), It may also simply be placed over a bowl of rice to create a delicious beef bowl.
