    Oh, gosh, this was delicious. The Korean market always has beef sliced for bulgogi, which makes this an anytime dish. I marinated it for perhaps three hours, and I'd like to hold it a bit longer next time. Because of dental work I had to skip the sesame seeds, so I added a splash of sesame oil just before removing the beef from the pan. Put a bit of sambal oelek on the plate to add some heat. A head of Boston lettuce was perfect for this (had reduced the quantity to 8 oz meat). A real winner.

    I only marinated for a couple of hours, and this still turned out great! I served it over rice for dinner, but also took it for lunch the next day in lettuce. It is good either way. DS preferred it over rice, but I think I liked it better in the lettuce. Thanks for sharing!!

    I did not slice my flank steak since I wanted to grill it. Turned out perfect! I did cook down the marinade and used it as a sauce and they devoured it! Very good, nice flavor will make again and again!
