A Korean Feast!

This week our older brother is visiting with his family and we've been
completely distracted enjoying them!
Every time we all get together we have 
to have a Korean Feast!
Our family has a love of Korean food since our 
family lived there for 3 years.
Here are two of our all time favorites that are definite crowd pleasers!
This is a Korean BBQ at it's finest!

First up is Bulgogi
2 1/2 pounds of tender beef sirloin sliced super thin
2 Tablespoons Sesame Oil
3/4 cup Soy Sauce
2 1/2 Tablespoons Toasted Sesame Seeds
1 Teaspoons Black Pepper
1 Teaspoons Salt
6 Green Onions Diced
1 Large Yellow Onion
6 Cloves Garlic Minced

We usually have the butcher in the meat department slice the meat thinly.
Mix together and let marinate at least 4 hours or overnight.
You can fry it up in a pan or for best results
use grilling pans on the grill!

Our other favorite is 
Yaki- Mandu!
(or as we know it, Korean Egg Rolls!)


Yaki-Mandu
3/4 lb Hamburger (pre-cooked)
3/4 lb Ground Pork (pre-cooked)
1 Zucchini finely grated
3 Eggs
1 Carrot finely grated
2 Garlic Cloves Minced
1 Small Bunch Bean Sprouts
4 Green Onions finely sliced
1/2 Yellow Onion Finely diced
1/2 Head Cabbage finely shredded
1 Tablespoon Sesame Seeds
1 Tablespoon Sesame Oil
2 Teaspoons Salt
1/4 Teaspoons Black Pepper
2 packages Won Ton Wrappers
Make sure all veggies are finely diced
and we always pre-cook the meat.
It's a group effort to make these little guys!
You only want to add about tablespoon of filling into the wonton wrapper
and then fold in half, sealing the edges with a bit of water to make them stick.
Fry in a pan of hot oil till golden brown.
Serve hot and with a dipping sauce of 1/2 cup Soy Sauce and 1/2 cup Vinegar.
Don't forget to add the Kimchi! A spicy, hot, marinated cabbage.
It's a must have, but it's not for the weak!
If you've never tried Korean food
you won't want to miss these two yummy recipes!

 Next we'll share the most divine recipe for your sweet tooth
that our brother shared with us! You won't want to miss this one!

Candice the food looks delicious. Thank you for the recipes. We will have to try it. Better yet, have us over. I'm joking. Glad you had a great time with your family.

How wonderful that ya'll get together and cook up your favorite foreign cuisine as a family. I love trying foods from around the world. I'd have to opt for vegetarian fare, though, and fortunately, all Asian cuisine has the best when it comes to vegetarian food. Hope your day is a good one. Tammy

Wow!This post reminds me of my own family's Korean feasts. We did the same thing -- bulgogi and yaki-mandu -- and everyone working to make the mandu. This is so sweet to see and brings back great family memories. Thank you!
