I was at the Sweet Beets farmer stand looking for some dinner ideas when these steak tips found me. On hot summer days grilling outdoors is a no-brainer. I’d been craving Korean food for a while, and my first thought was to make bulgogi. I asked my Korean colleague Andrew to send me a recipe to try out.
Bulgogi in Korean means “Fire Meat”. Traditionally sliced beef, pork or chicken is marinated in a sugar, soy sauce mix, and then stir-fried in a pan with onions, mushrooms and scallions. A proper bulgogi also includes pears; I excluded them because they are out of season and weren’t available at the market. The combination of the sweetness of the sugar, the saltiness of the soy sauce and the char on the meat are delicious.
