Bulgogi is a traditional Korean dish that is often served at parties and special occasions. The name Bulgogi means “fire meat” which comes from the traditional way of grilling the marinated meat on fire. Nowadays, it can also be cooked on a grilling or frying pan if charcoal grill is not available.

1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
1 tablespoon minced ginger
