The secret is in the bulgogi marinade. Make sure it’s umami-packed by using Knorr Beef Cubes, Knorr Liquid Seasoning, and a handful of aromatics, including garlic, ginger, and green onions.

Beef Bulgogi Ingredients
- ¼ cup hot water
- 1 pc Knorr Beef Cube
- 1 tbsp Knorr Liquid Seasoning
- 1 tbsp minced garlic
- 1 knob ginger, smashed
- ¼ cup sliced green onions
- ½ cup orange-flavored soda
- 500 g sukiyaki-cut beef sirloin
- ¼ cup butter

How to Cook Korean Bulgogi
Combine hot water, Knorr Beef Cube, Knorr Liquid Seasoning, garlic, ginger, green onions, and soda in a bowl. Add beef and marinate for at least 1 hour.
Heat a pan or wok over medium-high heat. Add beef and stir-fry with some of the marinade. On a sizzling plate, add butter, togue, and cooked beef. Drizzle with sesame oil and sprinkle sesame seeds on top. Serve immediately.
Alternatively, you can also cook your beef bulgogi on a grill. Once browned, transfer to a plate, then finish with sesame oil and seeds. You can also make this ahead! Marinate the beef over the weekend, keep it in the freezer, and cook it any day you want. It’ll even be more flavorful this way! Enjoy watching your K-Drama shows with a plate full of homemade bulgogi, kimchi, banchan, and your other favorite Korean dishes.
