This is one of my go-to recipes for healthy eating in bulk during the week.  This recipe is basically stolen from my Korean brother in another life, Won Yoo.  It’s perfect for spring now that grilling season is open.

Korean BBQ aka Bulgogi 

1 pound grass-fed beef sirloin                                      3 tbsp toasted sesame oil

1 bunch of scallions                                                         1/4 cup brown sugar

3 cloves of garlic                                                               3 tbsp Sun Drop

1/4 cup of soy sauce                                                        Gochujang to taste

Start by making the marinade.  I always use a gallon zip-top bag to hold the marinade.  Chop up a bunch of scallions and garlic pretty finely and throw in the bag.  Then add the right dose of soy sauce.  I found that overdoing it on the soy lends the meat curing too much, almost like the start of jerky.  Also throw in some brown sugar, or turbinado sugar if you are a jerk and shop at Whole Foods (I totally do).  The next ingredient is the most important and is what really separates Korean flavors from a lot of other also-incredible Asian cuisines.  Sesame oil.  Get to know it.  Finish the marinade with a swig of lemon-lime-ish soda, I prefer Sun Drop.
