Bulgogi (Korean Barbecued Beef)

This spring season has just been kicking my bum and not only mines but my children as well. My children both have asthma and when allergy season strikes it strikes the entire household. My little one's had fallen ill due to allergies and breathing problems. I have been nursing them lying awake day and night making sure they are breathing and not out of their sight. They are both feeling much better now

Now its my turn. That's how it usually goes kids are healthy, send them to school, they catch something from other children, bring it home, mummy takes care of them and when all is well, I then start to feel unwell and I've caught the bug. It's a long journey for me back to my normal self since I am also dealing with my own lung issues. When you can't breath nothing else matters and it's the worst and most helpless feeling in the world. I nurse myself back to health. It's been a struggle to get anything cooking in the kitchen so we've relied on some ready made meals. Everyone in the house has been doing the best they can.

Anyway, I tried to recreate a recipe that we tried a while ago from a Korean restaurant called Bulgogi (Barbecued Beef). When my son first tried this dish he loved it and he's our picky one. My darling daughter's more adventurous with food so she's much easier to feed. Here's how our Bulgogi turned out.

Thank you for continuing to support my culinary adventure, visiting my blog and for leaving lovely comments... Puts a smile on my face : )


2 sirloin steak
2 cloves garlic minced
half an onion diced
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon brown sugar
salt and pepper to taste
some coriander (cilantro)  leaves
2 tablespoon olive oil


Slice the steak into small strips I just chopped mine up. Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and let the steak marinate for an hour cover it in cling film and leave in the fridge. I couldn't be bothered to wait for an hour so I didn't marinade. After I've created the marinade I mixed it into the steak and placed it on a frying pan with the olive oil over medium heat. I fried the steak until the meat has cooked and sauce have reduced. Ready to serve over rice.. : )
