Grilled Beef Bulgogi (Korean BBQ)

Most often, this popular dish is sautéed in a hot pan, but grilling this marinated and thinly sliced beef over a charcoal BBQ adds a depth to the flavour that will quickly make it a staple recipe in your home!


  • About 2 lbs. of tender prime beef cut – thinly sliced (about ⅛ inch)


  • 5 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp mirin or rice wine vinegar
  • 1 red apple – peeled, cored and blended
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 Tbsp garlic – minced
  • 1 Tsp fresh ginger – minced
  • Salt and Pepper


  1. Mix all the marinade ingredients together.
  2. Add the beef and allow to marinate overnight (or four hours minimum).
  3. Get your grill ready and on high-heat, and begin grilling the meat. Since it’s thinly sliced, it will cook very fast. Alternatively, you can also cook the beef in a skillet on the grill.
  4. Serve with steamed rice and your choice of grilled vegetables.
