Korean Bulgogi (steak) and lettuce wraps

Korean Bulgogi (Steak) with Lettuce wrap

I often crave my mothers cooking. So when this happens, I cook up a Delicious Korean meal.

1 beef top round steak/ thinly sliced, or cut into cubes
4 tablespoons of  Soy sauce
1 tablespoon of sugar
2 tablespoon of Sesame oil
1 teaspoon minced, peeled ginger (fresh)
1/4 teaspoon of Korean chili pepper or Cayenne pepper
1 garlic clove crushed/ or minced
1 tablespoon of sesame seeds

Carrots thinly sliced- 1 cup
Celery thinly sliced-1 stalk
Green onion (garnish)

Korean red pepper paste (Gochujang)
Egg rolls/ pot stickers/or Mandu -Korean dumplings
Sticky Rice (I use my Rice cooker)

In a large mixing bowl add in, meat, soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, ginger, Korean chili pepper, garlic, and sesame seeds.  If you want more flavor, I suggest marinating this mixture overnight.  

In a skillet, add 1/3 cup of water. Add in carrots, and celery; cook over medium-high heat. Allow carrots and celery to become tender, and somewhat crisp. 

Add in your meat; with mixture, and cook allowing the flavors to come together. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until meat loses its pink color. This is optional but you can take some of your green onion, and stir  in with your meat, and vegetables. 

Once it all cooks up, you're ready to enjoy!
