Korean beef bulgogi

I love Korean food! Its always a pleasure to visit a Korean restaurant in San Francisco, or, to cook some Korean food at home! This classic dish is very easy to make and believe me, your entire family will love it. My kids were asking for more and my husband took the leftovers in the container to work next day.

If you prefer to make it low carb, just wrap cooked beef in lettuce instead of placing it on the rice. To add an extra healthy twist you can also substitute white rice with brown or even wild rice. Either way it will be delicious!Korean beef bulgogi
