    It was okay. I didn't have pears at home so I didn't add them to the mix. Maybe that's why the bulgogi was very salty. I'll try to add one less tbsp of soy sauce next time.

    loved it. i think it would have more flavour if I had cooked it over a charcoal fire. i cooked the meat in a wok on a gas cook top. I left the meat marinate in the source over night.
    it was good, more like teriyaki

    Turned out excellent. I added a bit more honey because I like it a little sweeter.

    It was delicious! I let it marinate for awhile and cooked the beef in small batches so it wouldn’t steam on itself. Also used mirin which was very good.

    Fulfils 3 important criteria: simple, quick, tasty. Nothing more needed to add to my dinner rotation.

    This was easy and delicious! I have a friend who lived in Korea and was craving Korean food. I made this for her and she said it was perfect! Great recipe! I will be making this again.

    I've tried various bulgogi beef recipes and this is easily the best one I've come across. I will definitely be making this again! Yumm! :)

    Great marinade! I added sembal oelek while I cooked the beef to add a little heat. Definitely would make again.
    Taste very good remind me of korea bbq. Will made it again
    How did it turn out??? Fabulous!!! What a great recipe. I made two modifications. I used 1.5 lbs of beef and added fresh ginger to the marinade. I will make this again and again. Also, it was toddler approved (just made sure they didn't bite into any ginger).

    It really taste good! I no longer need to go to a restaurant to order bulgogi, I can make one at home anytime I want to. This would be best paired with kimchi!

    Excellent, the beef ended up nicely! I seriously have no complains regarding this recipe.. In fact, I think this is restaurant-level bulgogi. I halved the recipe and everyrhing came out excellent.

    This is now my favorite dish to make for any gathering and it's always a big hit. You can use other proteins like pork or chicken too.

    Excellent recipe. It tastes just like the ones he est at our favorite korean restaurant. You can add some shimeji to the mix, as well.
