Home made Korean BBQ Steak recipe (Bulgogi)

I love the delicious flavours of the marinaded meats at the Korean BBQ and found that it’s very easy to make at home. The ingredients used are easy to get from an Asian supermarket and the best thing is that it is so quick to cook, especially if you have an electric tabletop grill. If you have never tried marinading steak before, give this Korean BBQ Steak recipe a go. Use it for your next BBQ pot luck. You can use the same marinade to make Vegetarian Korean BBQ mushrooms.
