Bulgogi wa Sanjeog Gui (Korean Barbecue)

4 servings

You will need:

1 lb. thinly sliced rump beef

Mixture A:

  • 2 tbl sugar
  • 4 tbl soy sauce
  • 4 tbl minced green onions
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp minced ginger
  • dash of pepper
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tbl toasted and ground sesame seeds
  • 1 tbl sake or sherry
  • 2 tbs sesame oil

Combine beef and Mixture A. Do this just before cooking because meat marinated for a long time in soy sauce tends to become tough. Charcoal broil or pan-broil. Serve with rice.


- Add green onion, cut diagonally as shown in photograph (not included)

- Meat and vegetables (such as chili peppers, carrots and green onions) can be skewered, dipped into Mixture A and broiled. Brown mushrooms (like regular white size, except brown) are especially tasty cooked this way.

- Use pork or chicken instead of beef. To give pork even more flavor, add cayenne pepper or gochujan to Mixture A. (Gochujan is a mixture of 2 tbs each of soybean paste, cayenne pepper, and soy sauce).
