"My grandmother made this traditional, non-spicy Korean dish a lot. Every person, even those who have never ate Korean food, love this dish. Use any beer of your choice, we used Budweiser. Roll this beef up in a lettuce leaf with some rice for a fun dining experience. No silverware needed! -Kids love it!" — WENDYOW

at last i find a recipe for the good stuff. my sister-in-law would make it your way with the exception of beer! can't wait to make it with the beer! she used to make it to take on little road trips. seems like you could feed an army with a cooler full of this stuff. we would save the marinade and boil the next day and pour over rice and eat kimchi or some other side dish.
only other comment i have is the type of soy sause to use. just remember you get what you pay for. cheap is cheap. pay a little more for the good stuff and you'll find out it taste better and goes further than the cheapo generic
Too much soy, too much beer, and no sweetness.
I didn't make this recipe, but it I know it would end up tasting too salty. Sugar is key in this recipe.
I tried this recipe to surprise my Korean parents. My mom was shocked at how salty the marinade came out. She asked, "are you sure it wasn't 2 1/2 TABLESPOONS of soy sauce?" She also said one whole can of beer was way too much. I think next time I'll go with my parents' recipe.
Mine is better.
Having had bulgogi in Korea I was excited to find this recipe. However, this did not taste like bulgogi and I have dicarded the recipe. Sorry
It does not taste much like bulgogi, but it is rather tasty! I added 1/4 cup of sugar, as well. It would be way too salty without it! It was delicious!
I really thought this was delicious!! After reading all the reviews I decided to add 1/2c sugar to the recipe which may seem a lot but mine didn't turn out salty. I marinated overnight and I also used the remaining of some "cheap" soy sauce (Kikoman) and the rest of San-J. Is this a good brand? I think one poster had a good point and may be the quality of the soy sauce. So I will be making this again, I loved it because it was easy and very delish!!
