Korean Food

Korean Food

Bulgogi - Korea's most famous beef dish.

Recipe: - from this link

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 pound beef top sirloin, thinly sliced
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped


  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine soy sauce, sesame oil, sesame seeds, garlic, sugar, salt, black pepper. Place beef and onions in the bag; seal, and shake to coat the vegetables and beef with the sauce. Refrigerate for at least 2 1/2 hours. I prefer to marinate mine overnight.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat. Remove meat from marinade, and place on a large sheet of aluminum foil; seal. Discard marinade.
  3. Place on grill, and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, or to desired doneness.
Samgyeopsal - (삼겹살; Korean pronunciation: [samɡjʌp̚sal]) is a popular Korean dish. Commonly served as an evening meal, it consists of thick, fatty slices of pork belly meat (similar to uncured bacon). The meat is not marinated or seasoned, and cooked on a grill at the diners' table. Usually diners grill the meat themselves and eat directly from a grill.

Hot pepper paste
Soybean paste

Cooking Method

First, brush your table-top BBQ grill lightly with oil and then bring it up to a high heat, place the pork belly onto the grill and then cook it until it is done.

Once cooked, the pork can be removed, sliced and then instantly served into lettuce wraps alongside the accompaniments. They are best eaten straight away, in one mouthful as is typical of the way the meal is eaten in Korea.
