Mika's Bulgogi

"After adopting my daughter from S. Korea I have a passion for making Korean food. This is a wonderful bulgogi recipe and so easy. Cooking time does not include marinating overnight. *Have your butcher slice the beef paper thin for you."

    Great recipe! I made this as written, letting it marinate for eight hours. The marinating is very important. I served this over rice with asparagus on the side. I may add a little bit of cornstarch next time just to thicken that sauce a bit, but that's just my preference. The flavor was great; thanx!

    My family loves this. I make it the traditional way, wrapped in a lettuce leaf with rice, but we also use this as a marinade/sauce. I bought a whole NY strip which turned out to be tough so I have been cutting the steaks into thirds (for more coverage area but still easy to grill) and soaking them in this before grilling. YUM! (then I cook the sauce to thicken/reduce a bit and we have that over rice. Now the family wants to try it on chicken too. A nice versitile sauce!


<p>I am a working wife and mother of 3. My boys are teenagers (17 and 19)and my daughter is 10 years old. My daughter was adopted from South Korea and because of that Korean food has become one of my passions. We visited Korea for two weeks in the summer of 2007 and had the best time ever! We love Korea!&nbsp;</p> <p><br /><a href=http://www.niftymaps.com/visitor-map.php?id=32782><img src=http://i.niftymaps.com/32782.png border=0 alt=Click to zoom in on my visitor map! /></a> <br /> <br />Click on the map to see my most recent visitors! :) <br /> <br /> <br /><a href=http://s216.photobucket.com/albums/cc269/erinalexa00/Anne%20Taintor/?action=view&amp;current=37081.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i216.photobucket.com/albums/cc269/erinalexa00/Anne%20Taintor/37081.jpg border=0 alt=Anne Taintor Make Your Own Damn Dinner Retro Vintage /></a></p>
