Number of Servings: 8


    2 Pounds Sirloin Steak
    3 Scallions(Green onions)Chopped
    4 Cloves garlic
    5 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
    2 Tablespoons Sesame oil
    1/4 Cup Sugar
    1/4 Teaspoon Black pepper
    1 ½ Tablespoons Toasted Sesame seeds


1. Slice the steak very thin on the bias. Score each piece with an X.

2. Chop the scallions and crush the garlic. Combine these ingredients with the remaining seasonings in a bowl. Add the meat to the marinade and mix well until all sides of the steak are coated.

3. The meat may be grilled immediately. The best results are obtained if the steak is marinated for 2 hours. The marinade will keep overnight Variation: Use rib steak or flank steak. Bul Kogi is so popular that many Koreans consider it the national meat dish. Serve with rice and kimchi.

From: The Korean Cookbook, by Judy Hyun.

Marinade can be used on pork or chicken also. Tri-tip is also good to use. Most grocery stores will slice your meat for you. Any meats cut carne asada are good also.

    I made this for my husband who spent a year living in Korea, only I added 1/4 cup dark brown sugar, 1 cup mushrooms and 1/2 cup match-stick carrots. He said it is just like the real thing! He was pleasantly surprised and so was I. My kids loved it! We will be having this again and again. - 1/13/10

    This was delicious. We used sirloin and added a little Korean chili paste, substituted honey and raw sugar for the sugar--mostly honey. We marinated one hour and I think it will be even better marinated longer. - 5/24/08

    I am a bulgogi lover and last night I made this recipe, turning my husband into one too! I think I'll try adding a little ginger next time and some pepper flakes, but otherwise very good! - 7/26/10
