"This is a quick and easy, but very tasty meal. You can substitute the chicken with beef or pork for variety. My wife and I absolutely love this recipe, and it only takes 30 minutes with very few dirty dishes! Serve over rice."

  1. Whisk onion, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, sesame oil, sesame seeds, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl until marinade is smooth.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Add vegetables if you wish; I normally use carrot straws and sliced mushrooms. For a little more bite, I use a peppercorn medley grinder instead of black pepper. You can substitute peanut oil for the sesame oil, if desired.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

We thought this was extremely tasty, though it didn't really taste much like bulgogi to me due to not being cooked on an open flame. It was still extremely delicious. I wound up finishing mine o...

Loved it!!! Doubled the amount of onion ( scallions). Don't add any extra salt, the soy sauce has enough. The key thing I do is to saute until all the liquid is gone and everything has more o...

This was delicious. I used it on cubed pork and the only alteration I did was reduce the cayenne by half. Once you try it, you'll keep eating it until you literally can't lift your fork anymore.
