- Meat often tastes best when barbecued. However, when this is not possible, you can also cook the bulgogi in a pan and then reheat it on a small metal grill over direct heat. This will add to the flavor of the dish.
- People often add lots of fruit like pear, apple, kiwi or pineaplle in order to tenerize the meat. However, it's important to adjust the amount. Adding too much kiwi or pineapple can over.tenderize the meat and make it too soft when cooking. A tablespoon of kiwi to 600g of meat is the right amount.
- Only use sugar in the marinade and add the honey while cooking. this brings out the flavor of the meat.
- It's importan to thoroughly heat the pan in order to cook delicious bulgogi. Otherwisw, the juices will seep out and the meat will lose its rich flavor. When making bulgogi with a lot of sauce, add enough fresh ground pear and onion and then cook the meat first, not together with all the sauce. This makes the bulgogi tastier and retains its original meaty flavor. When choosing the meat, strip loin is espacially suitable because of its taste. Serving serveral skewered strip loins together can be quit aesthetically pleasing. If the meat is TOO tough, tenderize it by marinating it in rice wine or fresh pear juice.
Opskrifte har jeg fået af min koreanske lærer som selv er koreaner. Hendes bulgogi smager præcis som den jeg har fået i Korea de gange jeg har været derovre. Skal ikke kunne sige om hun følger den 110 %, men er i hvert fald fra en koreansk/engelsk kogebog.
