Easy Beef Bulgogi

Created by: CAROL AU COURANT – Carol Gomez

 

INGREDIENTS

 

1 lb of thinly sliced sirloin (or any tender prime beef cut), about 1/8 inch

3 tbsp soy sauce

1 yellow onion

3 tbsp brown sugar

1 tbsp garlic, minced

2 stalks green onion, chopped

1/2 medium carrot, peeled and grated

2 tbsp rice wine (mirin)

1 tsp ginger, minced

1 tbsp sesame oil

1/2 cup of Coca Cola

1 tbsp sesame seeds for garnish

2 cups Minute Rice® Premium Instant Long Grain White Rice

DIRECTIONS

  • Mix all ingredients except the beef in a bowl to create the marinade.

 

  • Add the beef and marinate for a few hours or overnight for best results.

 

  • Grill or pan-fry until meat is cooked (approx. 30 minutes).

 

  • Garnish with sesame seeds, add individual serving sizes into foil packets, close packet and serve with a side of Minute Rice® Premium Instant Long Grain White Rice

 

NOTES

  • If you want to swap the coke for a healthier alternative, use half a cup of crushed asian pear or royal gala apple
  • always taste your marinade before adding beef so you can adjust to your taste
  • the meat quality and thinness is super important!
  • if you double the recipe for leftovers, portion them out and freeze; thaw overnight the day before consuming.
  • you can freeze the unused (& uncooked) meat in the freezer for a few weeks
  • you can find pre-sliced bulgogi thinly sliced beef at most Asian stores, if not, ask the deli if they can thinly slice the meat about 1/8 inch. If you choose to cut the meat yourself at home, slicing is easier when meat is partly frozen.
