A couple weeks ago I walked into my Mom's house and there in the kitchen was my Uncle, Ben-ee-bo, cooking dinner! I instantly got a flashback to when I was 7 years old and seeing him cooking his Korean dishes when he lived with us. He went on a church mission there when he was 19 for two years and then lived there for a few years after he got married. Everything he makes is SO DELICIOUS! Although my absolute favorite thing that he used to make is Bulgogi. You know those lettuce wraps at P.F. Changs? They got nothin' on this!
What You'll Need...
1 pkg Thin Cut Steak (Cut these in 1in. x 3in. strips)
Head of Lettuce
Marinate Meat in:
3/4 c. Sugar
1/2 c. Soy Sauce (I don't have a preference on this yet, but there
are some that smell a lot better than others.
1/4 c. Toasted Sesame Oil (my favorite ingredient! totally will
become your new favorite smell. Mmmm!)
2T. Garlic (minced or chopped)
3 Green Onion Stalks
Here's what the toasted sesame oil looks like...
Start cooking your white rice. The Botan rice is my favorite cause it's super moist and sticky.
Pour marinated meat into a 7x11 in. pan and broil in the oven for about 15-20 minutes, stirring frequently.
Get your head of lettuce ready. I like to smash the bottom of the lettuce on the counter to loosen up the layers and then I rip out the middle part and then separate the layers.
Spoon the rice onto a piece of lettuce and add some meat. Roll up and eat!
