Bulgogi is a grilled dish made of thin, marinated slices of beef or pork, grilled on a barbecue or on a stove-top griddle. It is also often stir-fried in a pan in home cooking. Sirloin, rib eye or briskets are the frequently used cuts of beef for the dish.
We recreated this dish with beef, turkey, and tofu for healthier alternatives. Although you can change the protein, it wouldn't be Bulgogi without the marinade.
2 tablespoons sesame oil
8 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup sugar
3 tablespoons mirin
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
4 scallions (green onions), minced
Heat sesame oil in a small saucepan. Add garlic and cook for 1 minutes. Add remaining ingredients, except green onions, and let the sauce cook over medium heat for 3-4 minutes, or until sugar has dissolved completely. Add green onions, promptly remove from heat and let the mix cool completely before using
as a marinade.
