Bulgogi (literally “fire meat”) is a classic Korean dish where thin slices of marinated beef are grilled on a BBQ or wok-fried (when cooked at home). The beef is marinated in a sweet and savoury sauce of soy, garlic, ginger and sugar along with some pureed Asian pear or apple, which tenderises the meat. Bulgogi is often served over rice with lots of accompaniments like spicy sauces and crisp veg. Get creative!

Our 20 minute recipe

  1. Marinate the beef

    Mix the BULGOGI MARINADE with the HONEY GINGER SAUCE and the apple in a bowl. 

    Mix in the beef, then keep aside. 

    Next, cook the rice according to pack instructions.

  2. While the rice cooks, get on with prep

    Mix the GOCHUJANG with 1 tbsp sesame oil in a small bowl.

    Slice the spring onions and peel the carrot into ribbons with a peeler (or thin sticks with a julienne peeler).

  3. Cook the bulgogi

    A few mins before your rice is done, cook the beef. You can either cook it simply like a stir-fry as below, (which is how locals cook this dish at home), OR see the tip for a more restaurant-style method for charred beef, which takes a little more effort. 

    Heat a little oil in a wide frying pan over high heat. Add some oil and stir fry the beef with all the marinade and most of the spring onions for 3 mins.

    TIP - alternative method to cook the beef - cook in batches for charred, caramelised beef strips. Heat a little oil in a wide frying pan over high heat. Use tongs to lift the beef slices out of the marinade, then fry them in batches very quickly (30 secs each side) to let them brown (careful not to burn). Then remove and keep aside. Fry the rest of the marinade in the pan with half of the spring onions for 1-2 mins, then plate up. 

  4. Serve!

    Serve the bulgogi over rice with the carrot ribbons and radish slices (optional) on the side. Sprinkle extra spring onions and sesame seeds (optional) on top and serve with the spicy Gochujang sauce on the side.
