Recipe: Bulgogi Deopbap (Bulgogi Rice Bowl)

Summary: Bulgogi is a popular Korean dish, which is made with thin slices of beef marinated in a slightly sweet soy sauce-based sauce


  • Ingredients:
  • 1 pound thinly sliced beef (rib eye or top sirloin)*
  • 2 scallions cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1/2 small onion thinly sliced
  • (*Pre-sliced bulgogi meat is sold at Korean markets. Pay a little more to get good quality meat. If cutting the beef at home, partially freeze for about an hour to firm it up for easier slicing. Cut across the grain into about 1/8-inch thick slices.)
  • Marinade:
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine (or mirin)
  • 1 tablespoon garlic
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoons sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons grated Asian pear (optional)
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Sauce:
  • 1/2 – 1 cup anchovy broth* or beef broth (or simply use water)
  • 1/2 – 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 – 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Optional Vegetables:
  • 4 ounces mushrooms
  • 1 small carrots
  • (Or equal amounts of other vegetables such as baby bok choy, green cabbage, or bell peppers.)
  • 4 servings of cooked rice
  • (Use a little less water than usual to cook the rice. Cooked rice should be a little drier than usual since it will absorb the sauce from the topping.)
