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!

Directions

  1. Slice beef with the grain into long strips, about 1 1/2 inches wide, and place into a bowl. Stir together the soy sauce, rice wine, sugar, garlic, sesame oil, pepper, and chile paste in a small bowl. Pour one third of this mixture over the beef, and toss to coat. Marinate at least one hour at room temperature, or longer in the refrigerator. Simmer the remaining sauce, and the green onions in a small saucepan for one minute before pouring into a serving dish to cool.
  2. Wash and dry the lettuce, and trim off any large stems. Gently flatten the leaves with the side of a cleaver or large knife. Arrange on a serving dish.
  3. Preheat a grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil grate.
  4. Place grate three inches over the coals. Cook the meat to desired doneness, about three minutes per side for medium rare. Slice against the grain into thin strips.
  5. To serve, each diner places some beef and sauce into a lettuce leaf, folds it into a bundle, and eats it with their fingers.
  6. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

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.
