Beef Bulgogi

17 Jan

Remember the Korean food fiesta weekend that I had over the New Year? It was awesome, I tell ya!

I made my own Kimchi (will share a modified version real soon *PROMISE*), Beef Bulgogi, Kimchi Jigae (Kimchi Soup) and Chargrilled Garlic & Pepper Prawns. My mom actually bought Dak Bulgogi (Korean BBQ Chicken) that have already been marinated and we just needed to grill the meat.


This is the gochujang which I got from the mini Korean grocery mart (Seoul Mart) located at Vivocity. It is basically a red pepper paste and the ingredients are hot pepper powder, soy bean, sweet rice and salt.

Korean cuisine is simple, really. You just need to marinate the meat and pop it in the fridge. When it’s time to eat, just assemble the meat accordingly and your guests will have to cook their own meal. Fantastic!


  • 600 – 800 gm thinly sliced beef
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 – 3 spring onions, roughly chopped


  • 3 tablespoons Korean red chili pepper paste (gochujang)
  • 1 tablespoon Korean red chili pepper flakes (gochugaru)
  • 2 tablespoons light soya sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seed oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper


Mix all marinade ingredients well.

Combine the meat, onion, and spring onions with the marinade and mix well. Marinate for at least an hour.

Heat a grill pan or a skillet over medium high heat and add the beef slices. Cook until the beef is cooked through and slightly caramelized, turning over once.

      Hi Lin,

      Yes, the ones that I bought are normally without alcohol. I got mine at the Korean supermarket at Far East Plaza. Hope this helps.
