Me and my girlfriend made this and we loved it. The flavors were subtle but well balanced. We will definitely be making this again. - 01 Jan 2016
It was good but to me, it did not taste like authentic Korean bulgogi. Maybe more soy sauce can be used, and brown sugar and a bit of cornstarch added to the recipe. It did leave the kitchen smelling yummy though! - 01 Oct 2009
My mother's Korean and I make this dish quite frequently. This is a decent basic recipe but to make it your own consider these alterations as I use! Instead of sugar, use honey or kyro syrup. After the meat cooks for a while the sugar will help thicken the sauce and caramelize nicely. That adds the sweetness you HAVE to have. (Otherwise you're making plain stir fried beef Chinese style!) Definitely leave out the salt as that's what the soy sauce is for! To tenderize the meat so it's not stringy (if using a cheap cut of beef) mince up some Korean/Asian pear or kiwi and add that in there. My mom even uses Pepsi/Coke when we're out of fruit in the house and it works great! Plus it adds some additional sweetness. I'm lazy and use a mini food processor to mince my garlic and fruit together then add them both to the bowl. I never put in the extra vegetables, if I do use any I use sliced green onions for color only. Also, MSG isn't very good for you in large amounts so if you don't feel like using it leave it out. MSG adds a little more depth to the flavors without increasing the saltiness, so feel free to use it at your own discretion. - 25 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
