Dak Bulgogi (Korean Barbeque Chicken)

Rating: 4 stars
In order to get that single flat steak cut from the chicken thigh, it actually takes some precision and some knife handling skills. But all that peeling, deboning, cutting, and marinating is all worth it. I got the savory sweet flavors that bulgogi marinades are known for but made even better with the tender and juicy thighs that were soaked overnight. Serve this with a bunch of Boston/Bibb lettuce, garnished with scallion strips.

Korean Bulgogi Bowl

Rating: 4.4 stars
If you love Korean food, you have to try this amazing twist on bulgogi beef! Bulgogi is usually made with thinly shaved slices of beef, marinated and flame licked. This dish, on the other hand, has the delicious taste you know and love, but is made with ground beef and served as a rice bowl. The whole recipe is anxiety-free and takes just a few minutes. Your kids and friends will love this healthier dinner, and you will feel like you're on the streets of Seoul.
