Bulgoki- Korean Beef BBQ

The theme for this Recipe Swap was Asian food.  My last experience with Asian food (Thai lettuce wraps) was a massive flop in my house, so I was looking for redemption from a bad meal.

I put together the marinade the night before.  The smells of the soy sauce and sesame oil quickly filled my kitchen.  Jacob came in and made a comment about how the marinade was a lot like the marinade for homemade beef jerky.  Which quickly scared me that the steaks would taste like warm beef jerky.  I let the flank steaks marinate over night in the mixture.

Jacob loved them.  He kept talking about how great the marinade was.  I thought they were good, just a little sweeter than I expected.  I did really like the addition of the green onion and the sesame seeds.  The seeds gave it that crunch, and the onion pieces offset the sweetness of the marinade.  I served it over a bed of rice, just something simple since I knew the marinade would be pretty strong.   I think this will definitely be a dish that will be made again.
