Korea has been the biggest case of stumpedness since we started out “Around the World in 12 Dishes”. As you probably know, we’ve set ourselves the challenge to bake a bread for every country we “visit”, and with Korea hit the proverbial brickwall. A friend of mine in Korea presented us with the bad news that the country is lacking in most things bread-based (thanks Evan!), so we went towards one of Korea’s most iconic dishes – Beef Bulgogi.
Taking inspiration from Allrecipes, we replaced the flank steak with some nice beef stir fry strips, which we froze for a few hours to make it easier to cut into strips (a neat tip that will aid you with almost all kinds of meat). Then we mixed together the soy sauce, sugar, chopped green onion, garlic, sesame seeds, vegetable oil (since we did not have sesame oil), and ground black pepper, and poured it over the beef, which Nico helped me cut.
Since the meat was frozen and so it could unfreeze, we let it rest on the table covered for an hour, after an hour we poured the whole mixture into our wok and cooked it up, before serving it with rice.
