Baek Jong Won Bulgogi Recipe

Baek Jong Won’s Bulgogi recipe has garnered nearly 1 million views on his YouTube channel and here is a quick go-to bookmark for his recipe. This is not my recipe, but a recipe I will use from time to time to make this version of bulgogi. My version of bulgogi is a bit more of a deeper taste from using mushroom-based soy sauce and also using pureed pear rather than pureed onion.

Baek Jong Won is a celebrity-chef from South Korea who owns a bunch of restaurants and has been the main host of a number of cooking television series such as Baek Jong-won’s Top 3 Chef King, Baek Jong-won’s Food Truck, and Baek Jong-won’s Alley Restaurant.

  • I don’t add in the shitake mushroom because I’m not a huge fan of shitake mushroom!
