Easy Korean Beef Bulgogi


Easy Korean Beef Bulgogi


Bulgogi is one of the most famous Korean dishes, and it is one of my favorites. Traditionally, we use paper thin sliced beef to make Bulgogi, and marinate it in the sauce for several hours, or even overnight.

Today, I would like to share a simple version of Beef Bulgogi with you! Instead of thin sliced beef, you can use grounded beef. It saves a lot of cooking time and it is still totally delicious ^^ When I use grounded beef, I don’t need to marinate the beef for several hours. Here, I share an easy version of Beef Bulgogi, and I hope you enjoy it!
