Beef Bulgogi

Originally uploaded by wayfarer
Marinate the following for at least 2 hours...longer the better. If it's frozen, put into a bag with marinade and let it thaw out in it.

Get 1 lb beef cut into thin slices - as thin as you can get it from the butcher. Then cut in crossgrain (against the grain) - this helps make it chewable and not tough.

Marinate in:

1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup apple juice or white grape juice (recipe calls for rice wine but this is a good substitute)
1/4 cup sesame oil (i just used regular oil and added a tablespoon and a half of sesame seeds...you can toast them in a dry pan to really draw out the flavor).
1 clove garlic crushed ( i used 1 tablespoon of garlic ginger paste and highly recommend that because the ginger really added to it. If you don't have or use the paste, add some fresh chopped ginger...i think it would be bland without it.)
1-3 green onions finely sliced (i used whole green beans instead and it was delish!)
fresh ground pepper to taste

Stir and add beef, marinate at least 2 hours, not more than 12 though.

Recipe says to grill it, i just poured it all into a pan with a little bit of oil and cooked until done. It only took about 5 minutes...this depends on how thin your meat is cut. Add salt to taste.

Serve over rice. Enjoy!
