As I have written before, if you want to invest in one speciality ingredient to take all your at-home Asian cooking to the next level, it has got to be sesame oil. It is similar in price to olive oil and is the secret ingredient that makes homemade stir fry dishes feel restaurant quality. Bonus points that I have no problem finding it my regular grocery store.
Because I do not often (ever?) shop at speciality stores, Beef Bulgogi is a fun Korean dish to make at home. You will recognize all the items in this ingredient list, and probably have most of them on hand already.
- 3 cloves garlic
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 4 tablespoons sesame oil, divided
- 1 pound sirloin, sliced thinly
- 7 carrots, quartered
- 3 green onions, sliced
