Bulgogi beef lettuce wraps (Bento #272)
Yesterday I opened the refrigerator and staring right at me was a top sirloin filet, bulgogi marinade, and a big jar of kimchi. I’m not sure how it happened... it definitely wasn’t on purpose or anything. -_^ If truth be told, I totally winged it. I’m not ashamed to say that I don’t know the proper way to make bulgogi beef, but what I ended up with was amazing!
I sliced the sirloin into thin strips and let it marinate for about 8 hours, laid the strips on a baking sheet, and cooked them at 400F in the oven until they were cooked and the leftover marinade on the meat got nice and thick and sticky. Mmmmmmmm!
I’m eating them wrapped in a lettuce leaf along with a few pieces of kimchi and chopped green onion. This is how we ate our meat at the Korean BBQ a few weeks ago and I loved it!
The rest of the bento has mushroom couscous, cheese, a ton of fruit, and a tomato and jicama salad.
The 4th of July is coming up and I haven’t made any special food plans! I’ve been so distracted with the house that I completely forgot to plan a cool recipe for Wednesday. Help!! Do you guys have any simple, festive, easy to make favorites?
