Bulgogi

Bulgogi is a popular Korean dish made with thinly sliced beef that is pre marinated with various seasonings on  a bbq pan and preferably over hot coal. The first time I tasted this dish was the hotel we stayed at when we moved to South Korea back in 2007, it was one of the fixed dishes at their breakfast buffet.

Since it is to cold to barbecue outside, I made this Bulgogi in a frying pan.

1 kg/2 lb thinly sliced sirloin or rib eye

4 stalks of spring onion

2 julienned carrots

Lettuce

Marinade
1 dl pureed pear
1 dl applesauce
1 dl finely chopped onion
4 cloves crushed garlic
1 teaspoon  grated ginger
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 stalks of green onion

1 shredded carrots

Put all the ingredients in a blender/food processor except carrot and green onions and mash all ingredients into a puree.
Cut spring onions and grate the carrot.
Mix the meat, marinade and vegetables except the lettuce in a bowl and let it sit 3 hours or over night in the refrigerator.
If you keep it in the fridge you take the meat out a few hours so the meat has room temperature before bbq it.  Serve the meat on lettuce with carrots and spring onion.
