Korean Spicy Pork Bulgogi


Looks like I've developed a craving for Korean food!  Here's my first attempt at preparing Pork Bulgogi with this Pork Bulgogi marinade which is supposed to be not too spicy but yet we do find it to be quite spicy.  'Bul' in Korean means 'fire' and 'Gogi' is 'meat', so literally it means 'Fire meat'.  I didn't BBQ or grill to 'fire' the meat  and instead just pan-fry the overnight marinated bulgogi.  




This porky dish is delicious and just wonderful to go with plain white rice or lettuce wraps.

    1. I agree with you. The names are a tongue twister. You can find an assortment of these sauces in Aeon supermarket.
