"I'm not sure if this is authentic, but it tastes like the bulgogi at the Korean restaurants I have eaten in. It's great for entertaining (easy to marinate in advance, and cook on the grill) and the sauce is fabulous!" — HannahKate

toasted sesame oil
freshly ground black pepper
hot chile paste
green onions, chopped into 1 inch pieces
We tried this while camping over the weekend. I don't like to substitute the first time I make a recipe, but I looked at THREE different stores for hot chile paste and had no luck. I substituted hot thai chili sauce, so I don't now how much that altered the recipe. I did everything else exactly as instructed and we LOVED the results.
When I told hubby what I was making I could see the look of doubt on his face -- "wrapped in lettuce leaves???" But I lost count of how may he ate and he has already requested that I make it when we go camping again Labor Day Weekend. I served this with Far East brand Ginger Sesame Rice which was a great accompaniment -- we'd add a little to our lettuce bundle before wrapping and eating. YUMMY!
I'm not sure whether to keep searching for the chile paste or stick with the chile sauce. Either way THANKS for the great recipe and a nice addition to our camping trip menu!
Would not make again. There are many other Korean recipies on here that are much better. Try the Korean BBQ chicken. My family liked the marinade better and beef and chicken.
This EXCELLENT, you did a great job inventing this dish, It's a true Korean Delicacy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A 5 STAR Dish!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I marinated steak bites for 48hrs and used the remaining sauce over the meat and brown rice (no lettuce leaves - I was worried we'd make a complete mess since the sauce was so runny). Really good flavor though. I also had to use regular white wine since I didn't have rice wine.
good dish but not the best korean beef i've tried.
This was really good, but I think it would make a better stir-fry than grilled dish. Also, I would use more chili paste next time to give it more kick.
One of my family's all-time favorites!! My daughter asks me to makes this all the time. Just the smell of the marinade starts everyone drooling. Thanks!
This smelled wonderful as it cooked on the grill & tasted pretty good too. I used green leaf lettuce instead of bibb & leeks instead of scallions. served with soba noodles.
