Meet Bulgogi. While it directly translates to “fire meat,” it’s actually a sweet and spicy Korean dish made with thinly sliced beef, seasoned in a traditional marinade of Korean-Style Red Pepper Gochugaru, soy sauce, ginger and sesame seeds. Serve with lettuce leaves and rice for an authentic Korean meal any night of the week.

  • Place beef in freezer for 1 to 2 hours. Cut beef across the grain into thin slices (about 1/8 inch thick).

  • Mix remaining ingredients. Add beef. Marinate 30 minutes or longer for more flavor.

  • Heat large skillet over high heat. Add meat with remaining marinade. Cook, stirring constantly until meat is browned, about 5 to 6 minutes. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve with rice, lettuce leaves, and veggies as desired.
