June 2010 Meal #3: Bulgogi

Meal #3 is something I've made numerous times from the time I was in high school and I learned it from my mom.  It's a Korean dish called Bulgogi that usually consists of marinated barbecued beef, although chicken or pork may also be used.  Typically it's served as a grilled meat but with this recipe it's more of a stir-fry dish.

1 1/2 lbs. beef steak
3 tbsp. sugar
1/3 cup shoyu
4 tbsp. sesame oil
3 tbsp. oil
1 1/2 tbsp. minced garlic
4 medium tomatoes, sliced
1/3 cup chopped green onions
sesame seed to garnish

Cut meat into strips.  Lightly tenderize meat and sprinkle sugar on both sides.  Let marinate for one hour.  Squeeze excess liquid from meat.  Combine shoyu, sesame oil, sugar, and garlic into bowl.  Stir in meat and let marinate for 2 hours longer, stirring meat occasionally.  Heat oil in large frying pan.  Add meat and marinade and stir fry over medium heat.  Do not overcook.  Garnish with sliced tomatoes, green onions, and sprinkle sesame seeds.
