Many people who visit Korea eat bulgogi and I think that is because bulgogi is well known as Korean traditional food all over the world with great reviews stating that it is delicious. However since we cannot go out to have bulgogi all the time is there any way we can cook bulgogi, Korean traditional food at home?
Firstly, bulgogi is Korean style beef BBQ which is cooked marinated beef and the important part at this point is the seasoning and the quality of beef.
It will be hard for you to find beefs for bulgogi in other countries when beef for bulgogi can be easily found in Korea. If you cannot find beef for bulgogi, it is ideal for you to buy beef that is thin for the seasoning to be absorbed well and has nice marbling of meat and fat layers.
So we will have to prepare basic ingredients, right?
Firstly, chop onions, carrots and green onions thinly and we have to make the seasoning.
If you find it hard to make your own seasoning, you could buy Korean bulgogi sauces that are already available at big super market, but wouldn’t it be better if you make it by yourself?
Bulgogi seasoning needs 5 spoons of soy sauce, 1 spoon of minced garlic, 1 spoon of corn syrup, 2 spoons of sugar, 1 spoon of plum juice, little bit of pepper and sesame oil, and mix them well. (You can increase the amount of seasoning depending on the amount of beef you are cooking in that ratio).
When the sauce is ready, we have to prepare cellophane noodles that will go in bulgogi.
Firstly, cook cellophane noodles in boiling water for about 10~20 minutes. You don’t have to be worried that the noodles getting too thick as it creates better texture of noodles. When the cellophane noodles are ready, rinse them once in cold water.
Now it is time for us to cook bulgogi!
Put the sauce into beef and put one kiwi (granted) and mix them well.
Kiwi makes the texture of beef soft which makes it even more delicious.
After waiting for 30 minutes, you could put bulgogi into frying pan and cook cellophane noodles together.
You can add more soy sauce or pepper according to your preference.
How about having Korean bulgogi for today’s dinner?
Hmm..!! My mouth is watering already!
