12 oz thinly sliced sirloin
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 small onion thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic finely minced
1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sugar
3 dashes chili powder
3 dashes coarsely ground black pepper
1 tablespoon chopped scallion
White sesame for garnishing
Kimchi sliced, for garnishing, optional
1 head butter lettuce
Marinate the sirloin with garlic, soy sauce, sugar, chili, and pepper. Stir to mix well. Set aside for 15 minutes to marinate.
Heat up a skillet with the vegetable oil. Add the onion and saute for about 10 seconds.
Add the sliced sirloin. Stir and cook until the meat is cooked. Top with the scallion and white sesame. Transfer out to a serving platter.
Tear off the leaves from the lettuce. To assemble the Bulgogi Lettuce Wraps, add 1 tablespoon of the Bulgogi onto the center of the lettuce leaf, then top with the sliced kimchi, if using. Serve immediately.
Recipe Notes: For authentic Bulgogi, you will need 1/2 cup of pear juice and 1 teaspoon of Sesame Oil to marinate the meat.
