Bulgogi means Korean BBQ.

The flavors are generally a sweet and savory combination with soy sauce, sesame, ginger, garlic, brown sugar, pear puree, and about a dozen other ingredients. My homemade version even uses lemon-lime soda pop. The beauty of a purchased sauce is saving the time, energy, and cost of ingredients. I’ll make the swap – as long as it’s good!

Bibigo BBQ Marinade makes a delicious and easy Bulgogi.

Thinly slice and cube your choice of steak, then marinate in Bibigo BBQ for 30 minutes, or even better over-night. Then heat a frying pan or a wok on high, add some vegetable oil (and I also add a little sesame oil) then sear and stir fry the meat until it’s crispy on the edges with a dark, caramelized, and sticky consistency. It’s incredible.

I make a big batch of bulgogi and multi-purpose it.

Sometimes my meal planning isn’t all that organized, but I’m usually thinking ahead about how I can use an ingredient down the road – it makes life simpler. Batch cooking is pretty handy. So, I’ll make a large batch of bulgogi and separate it into different dishes. Here are some of my favorites:

Loaded Fries Ideas

Loaded fries are a repeated theme at our house. We’ll do Poutine style with gravy and cheese, an American BBQ style with shredded bbq, or a Mexican take with taco meat and south of the border ingredients. It just depends on what’s in the frig and the pantry and Korean ingredients are usually on hand! I have a few favorite Korean combos:

For the Bulgogi

  • 1 bottle Bibigo BBQ Marinade & Sauce this will marinate 5 pounds of protein
  • 1 pound steak sliced thinly and cubed
  • 2 tbsp oil for stir-frying the meat. I also add 1 tsp of sesame oil for flavor.

For the Fries

  • 1 bag waffle fries or your favorite french fries. A sturdy thick fry will work best.

  • 1/2 cup green onion sliced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro chopped
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds optional
