Denise's Famous Bulgogi (crockpot)
This recipe serves 4 people. I put it in the crock pot in the morning & it was done at dinner time.
Mix the marinade ingredients (all but the beef) and add to the
meat. Cover & marinade at least 2 hours. I recommend overnight.
Pour mixture in crock pot, make extra batch of marinade & add extra
marinade & in crock pot. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
I find some meats cook up rubbery in the crock pot....sirloin strip have worked well in the crock pot. For large group I buy a roast & have it shaved...they hate doing it at the grocery store, but will if you give them notice. I have used eye of the round roasts & bottom of the round roasts...if it's shaved it comes out great in the crock pot. I pretty much experiment with different cuts of meat, to see what works best I hope this helps.
Regarding Denise's Bulgogi recipe:
loveourboys (Kathy) had this to say:
Denise (Caroline's mom) shared her bulgogi recipe with me for our boys' Tol which was last Sunday. She told me to double the ingredients (except for the meat) and put it in the crockpot. It was AWESOME!!!! Everyone raved over it. It was the only thing that was completely gone at the end of the party and everyone wants the recipe. The meat was so tender coming from the crockpot and so easy to throw together the night before and then we just plugged it in that morning. Couldn't have been easier or tastier! I would recommend it!
MicheleNJ had this helpful advice for party amounts:
For Nicholas' Tol party I used a bottom of the round roast
& had it shaved. You will have to adjust marinade ingredients to
the size of the roast. For a 6lb. roast I used:
LizandScott (Liz) had this helpful comment when asked what to do when you can't find a butcher willing to shave meat for you:
When I make bulgogi I use flank steak cut as thin as possible (I usually have the butcher do it). If you want to slice it yourself, the easiest way is to put the meat in the freezer for about a half hour and then slice it (that way it's more firm and easier to slice thinly).
Lesa had a helpful comment:
In our area you can buy thinly sliced beef labeled for carne asada. It works equally well for bulgogi.
