    This is the recipe that I made once and lost. then I made a bunch of Korean beef recipes that weren’t as good. this one is good. make with broccoli. Could try with less sugar.

    Very good. I subbed the coconut sugar for 1.25 tbs. of raw honey and it was delicious. Very quick and easy. Served over jasmine rice with steamed broccoli on the side. I have a whole house of happy customers

    Tasty and fast to come together. Good, easy protein. I didn’t have fresh ginger on hand, so used some ground. My family has not acquired a taste for ginger yet, so they did not miss the stronger flavor :-)

    This was really delicious! I was looking forward an interesting treatment for ground beef, and It does capture the flavors of Bulgogi really well! I served it over Maifun rice stick noodles.

    It was very greasy. I would brown the meat first and drain it then add the garlic and ginger to sauté.

    I usually make a bulgogi sauce that has an apple but since I didn’t have any apples I found this recipe which was a lot quicker and with less dishes to clean! It was also just as delicious as my original bulgogi recipe!

    Very easy and quick! I subbed Bragg’s liquid aminos for coconut aminos, but otherwise followed the recipe as is, and sautéed a mix of veggies to serve with it. Delicious!

    Me and my boys really enjoyed this one. I doubled the meat and most ingredients except ginger and garlic, and had to substitute the Coconut Aminos with soy sauce. 🤷‍♂️gotta work with what ya have.

    Maybe a little less sugar & add cornstarch for a sauce. Otherwise, delicious!! Served with broccoli & quinoa or rice.
