  • 1 lb. lean round steak
  • 1 Tbsp. peeled ginger, minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp. soya sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. sesame oil
  • 2 carrots thinly sliced

  • 1 cup broccoli flowerettes
  • 1/4 lb. mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 small zucchini, sliced
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 1/4 lb. snow peas
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp. cornstarch, mixed with water
  • 2 Tbsp. water


Thinly slice beef (slightly frozen beef will slice into thin strips more easily). Cut the strips into 2 1/2 inches in lengths. Mix with ginger, garlic, soy sauce and sesame oil. Stir together until well mixed. Cover and refrigerate over night. Clean and chop the vegetables and set aside or place in plastic bags in the refrigerator.

Wipe the bottom of your wok with a dab of oil on paper towel. Heat. Add the beef mixture and stir fry for 1 minute. Add the carrots, and garlic and stir fry for 2 minutes. Add the remaining vegetables and stir fry 2 minutes longer. Stir in the cornstarch and water and heat until sauce is clear. Serve immediately with rice.

A friend of mine brought home a Korean dish recipe. It was pronounced Pagogie, I am sure that is not the correct spelling. It consisted of stirfried beef, soy sauce, potatoes, onions, brown sugar, and almost any thing else you wanted to add, without overpowering it. It is served over a bed of rice (naturally) and topped with an egg omelet.


I can't remember exactly how it was done. I have tried to make it, but doesn't come out right. If any knows this dish, I would like to hear from you.

Editor's Note: The correct name is "Bulgogi", a Korean beef dish.

I was going to say the same thing- Bulgogi, absolutely delicious. My Dad was stationed in Korea an learned how to make it on a hibachi.

It is Bulgogi but I've never had it topped with an egg. Usually it's simply served over rice with Kimchi on the side. Yum! It is indeed a tasty dish! You can easily just go ahead and top it with a fried egg cooked to your liking. If you Google 'Stirfry Bulgogi' you'll find oodles of recipes for it.


I have the recipe somewhere in my paper recipe notebooks but couldn't find it just now with a quick search but when I do I'll share it with you. It was the recipe a boyfriend of mine, when I was in my 20's, mom made all the time. She was Korean and he was born to her in Korea by an American soldier during the Korean war. Anyway, it's an authentic recipe so will try to find it for you and send it via personal message.

Everyone is right, it's Korean Bulgogi; A friend let me taste some more than ten years ago, which she had gotten from what we thought was a Chinese carry-out. Enter the computer age, and several things were against me in searching for the recipe-I thought it was Chinses cuisine, and my friend had pronounced it 'beef bull-cokey'! Didn't find out til last year the correct pronunciation and spelling, but it was worth the wait! If you google it you will find many recipes for it and a chicken version. Bon Apetit!
