Bulgogi is a marinated beef recipe, although other meats such as chicken and pork can also be used.

It is made from very thin slices of prime cut beef, today I used ribeye. The meat is marinated with a mixture of soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil & seeds, garlic & chilli. This is then combined with a selection of vegetables. I used scallions, onions, carrots, peppers & sugar snaps. (you can use of course mushrooms and other vegetables to your own taste)

When serving it can be served with either rice or noodles. For todays meal I served it with some sticky Asian rice and full heads of iceberg lettuce so that I could make lettuce/rice wraps with the bulgogi in the middle

Ingredients (1 serving)

150g Ribeye Beef
3 baby carrots
1 small onion
2 scallions
Piece of yellow & orange pepper
Sugar snaps

3tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1 clove of garlic
1 tsp white sugar
½ tsp salt
½ tsp black pepper
1 red chilli (optional)


Cooking utensils
Chopping board
Sharp knife
Garlic crusher
Ziplock bag  

- Thinly slice Ribeye beef 

- Combine all marinade ingredients in your Ziplock bag and mix thoroughly, crush your garlic and finely chop your chilli
- Thinly slice your carrots, peppers, onions
- Cut your scallions into thicker fingernail sizes

 - Combine beef and vegetables with your marinade in the Ziplock bag and marinade for a minimum of 2 hours or overnight for best results

- Preheat your wok to a high heat
- Just before adding your ingredients apply a small amount of oil to the wok

 - Add all your ingredients to your hot wok and flash fry the ingredients for 4-5 minutes

- Serve in the heads of some Iceberg Lettuce and with some very sticky asian rice. You can now make very tasty lettuce wraps with your Bulgogi and rice

Tip: When using on a BBQ just wrap ingredients in aluminum foil and cook over hot coals for aprox 20 minutes
