Grilled Korean Beef is full of amazing flavor and so quick and easy to throw on the grill! Also known as Bulgogi, this tender grilled beef is an easy and delicious dinner.
We’ve been keeping that new grill of ours busy this summer. Between the grill and the slow cooker I haven’t turned my oven on except to do a little baking now and then. Remember that yummy blueberry pie? That was worth turning the oven for.
Flank steak is one of our favorite cuts of meat. I usually just pop it into some kind of marinade overnight and then onto the grill it goes. The perfect kind of summer meal.
Today I’ve got a YHM version of Korean Grilled Beef. It uses a combination of soy sauce, sugar, garlic, sesame seeds, sesame oil and some seasoning.
I just pop it all in a zippered bag and then add the meat to marinade for a few hours or overnight. The trick to perfection with this dish is a nice hot grill. I heat our grill up to about 350-400 degrees F. and pop the meat on. Let it grill for about five minutes on one side and then 5 minutes on the other side.
This will leave the meat nice and pink in the inside. If you like your meat cooked a bit more just leave it on the grill longer.
I then slice it nice and thin against the grain.
Add a few more sprinkles of sesame seeds and some sliced green onion for some nice color. Serve it with some rice or some roasted potatoes. I also served it with some fresh green beans out of the garden. Delicious!
