Beef Bulgogi (Korean Marinated Meat)

Coincidentally, it seems that just as my best friend Jamie moves to South Korea, Korean food is getting its much needed spot in the limelight state-side. The truth is, that I haven't even given Korean food much of a thought until now, but after testing this recipe out (and spending hours reading recipes online and in magazines) I have come to realize I have been seriously missing out.

This marinade is out of this world good and is a nice change to the marinades we traditionally use. Best of all, it is so versatile! I used this on tuna the same night for myself (I don't eat meat) and it was equally delicious! We are always a happy household when we come upon a recipe that satisfies both our dietary needs!

Beef Bulgogi

5 TB soy sauce
2 TB agave nectar (substitute white sugar if not available)
1/4 cup green onion
2-3 garlic gloves
1 TB red chili paste (recommended Sriracha)
2 TB sesame oil
1 1/2 pounds flank steak

Combine all ingredients and pour over meat. Marinate for at least 1 hour, and up to 24 hours.

Heat grill to medium heat and cook steak 15 minutes per side or until desired readiness.
