If you like to get spicy pork bulgogi at Korean restaurants, you should definitely give this a try! This tastes delicious and can be a great main dish along with rice. 🙂

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon white wine
  • 1 Teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1/2 onion sliced

  6. Mix together the sauce with the pork,and onions. You can let it marinate overnight if you want, but it is not necessary (****I put the mushrooms in with the marinade, but DON’T DO THAT! It makes the mushrooms wilt too early so add it when you actually cook the meat)
