Bulgogi literally meaning "fire meat" in Korean, is basically marinated meat usually cooked on a grill. This isn't so much a recipe as what food pairs well with it. I usually make steamed broccoli, over easy egg, and kimchi with it, topping the rice with furikake, or a Japanese seasoning (sesame seeds and seaweed flakes). This is one of my favorite best bang for the time/buck meals as you can prepare this in less than 10 minutes and may cost you 15 dollars for 4-5 meals.

You will most definitely find fresh marinated beef at your local Korean supermarket.
No grill here, but panfrying is okay too. However, grill it if you have it.
Cook until dark brown on one side, then flip it over and brown it on the other. Cook it longer if you like it crispier. It usually takes just a few minutes per side on high heat.
Add 1/4 cup water in a pot and place the broccoli inside when it starts boiling. Feel free to add any seasoning like lemon pepper to the broccoli for added flavor. Cover and let it cook/steam for 5 minutes or until soft. Cook the egg over-easy so there is still a gooey yolk. Later when you pair it with rice, the yolk will mix with the rice for maximum yumminess.
There are a lot of different kimchi brand but this one is my favorite because it comes very sour right out the jar. Great thing about kimchi is that it lasts forever in the fridge! Furikake on the right can be of any brand, as long as it has some seaweed and sesame seeds.
Cook some rice and sprinkle some furkiake on top. Put everything together just like the picture. I like to put the egg on top of the rice so when it breaks, all the gooey yolk smothers the rice. Can't beat this 10 minute meal.
