The Easiest Korean Pork Bulgogi Stir-Fry

I promise my Korean Pork Bulgogi Stir-Fry is not burnt. Hubby called it caramelized. Because of the brown sugar in the marinade, I caramelized the loving daylights of the Bulgogi, HAH! It was good though and the house smelled like Bulgogi for days. 😋 I called this the easiest recipe for a Pork Bulgogi because I used a marinade that I found at an Asian store a month ago. I have a recipe for the marinade in an old post so refer to that if you want to go to the homemade route which I would highly recommend. I saw the bottle marinade and just wanted to try.

I believe authentic bulgogi calls for grilling the marinated meat with the veggies. I could have easily done that with my Copper Chef Grill and I debated for hours whether I should go the stir-fry or grilled way and eventually stir-fry won. I am enjoying my new flat-bottom wok which Scott found at the same Asian store so I wanted to use it for this dish. Full recipe comes after the video tutorial. Enjoy!

  • Heat up oil in a wok. Fry up the pork slices in batches. Put the fried up pork slices into a platter. Repeat the process for the remaining pork, in batches, until all pork are cooked. Do the same with the veggies for a minute or two.

Serve this taco style or with rice. I’d take both, please!
