Bulgogi Sandwich

CST testing might not be fun for students but it's even worse for teachers who can't do anything else besides walk around and monitor the students.  As I was proctoring for the science portion of the CST this morning my mind began to wander and I started thinking about making this bulgogi sandwich.  Well I'm glad I did because it was pretty tasty.  Yohan came over after work with the groceries and here's how it went down...  

First, we made a marinade for the bulgogi.  Some soy sauce, sesame seed oil, brown sugar, garlic, and pepper went into a bowl.

Yohan bought about a pound of this thinly sliced chuck from the Korean butcher.

Finally, a recipe that is true to the name of my blog!

We let the marinade and the meat get acquainted for about ten minutes...

then cooked it over medium heat on a pan.  Like the action shot I got of Yohan's chopstick skills?

While Yohan was busy with the bulgogi I sliced a tomato...

and half of an avocado.

We made a gochujang (Korean chili paste) mayo spread for a little kick...

and fried up a couple of eggs.  I cook mine over low heat with a lid on top to help them cook evenly.

Slices of medium cheddar was toasted onto Kaiser rolls...

then we spread the gochujang mayo and put it all together.

First the lettuce(blurry picture),

the bulgogi,

crispy thick cut bacon (ohhh yeah),

slices of creamy avocado,


the fried egg (although I should have left the yolk runny),

and voila!

Makes 2 sandwiches

about 1 pound of thin sliced beef like chuck or rib eye
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame seed oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon brown sugar
*using 1 tablespoon of brown sugar didn't make the meat as sweet as it usually is so if you like bulgogi on the sweeter side, add a bit more 

1.  Mix all ingredients except meat in a bowl.
2.  Add in the beef and let sit for 10-15 minutes.  The meat is so thin that it doesn't need to sit for too long.
3.  Cook over medium-high heat in a pan.  
4.  Remove the beef and discard juices in the pan.

the sandwich
2 slices of crispy bacon
kaiser rolls
2 slices of cheddar
2 eggs
tomato slices
1/2 avocado, sliced
gochujang mayo (mixing just a tiny bit of gochujang with mayo is plenty unless you can handle a lot of heat)

 1. Toast the bread with cheese. 
2. Spread the mayo on one slice of bread.
3. Fry up the eggs.
4. Assemble the rest of the ingredients and eat!
