Make Bulgogi at Home

bulgogi plateAhhh Bulgogi.

I’m going to let you in on a little secret. I never knew what Bulgogi was until my husband ordered it at our favorite little sushi house. It was pretty good, but not really something I felt I could make a meal out of. A few weeks ago he had a little get together at his friends and offered to make this for dinner. Apparently it was a success. Something tells me you put a group of guys together in an apartment and most of them are not married, they’re going to get excited about beef.

It’s what for dinner.

Yep. I went there.

When we made up the batch of miso soup, husband also made this.

Bulgogi, while it sounds all super fancy, is super easy to make. I’m pretty sure there is a more authentic recipe, and I know he checked. But, I guess this one turned out to be his fave.

Hey, if it’s not broke, don’t fix it, right?

    You’re not the only one who had never heard of Bulgogi before….this is literally the first time I have ever heard of it. It sounds really good, though. When you guys come to Boston, you can come to my house and make it for me 🙂

  2. I still don’t know what Bulgogi is 😉 I’m assuming it’s a thin meat.. It looks really good. I suppose I may try and order it one day. I will say those noodles look so so amazing!

  3. My boys would love this. My youngest is in a phase where he wants to use chop sticks for everything – this is perfect.
