1/4 yellow onion, thinly sliced
2 green onions, chopped, dark green parts separated from white and light green parts
1/3 cup soy sauce
3 tablespoons white sugar (Coconut sugar can be used although it dramatically alters the flavor)
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon Korean red pepper flakes (I just used regular red pepper flakes)
1/4 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 1/2 pounds beef sirloin steak, cut very thin using kitchen shears
1 teaspoon honey, or to taste
Combine yellow onion, white and light green parts of green onions, soy sauce, sugar, sesame seeds, garlic, sesame oil, red pepper flakes, ginger, and black pepper in a bowl until marinade is well mixed. ( I also added a teaspoon of Whiskey to help break down the meat tendons. If going this route add an additional 1/2tsp of sugar) Add steak slices to marinade; cover and refrigerate, 1 hour to 1 day. ( The longer the meat sits the more tender it becomes, I marinate from 36-48 hours)
Heat a skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, cook and stir steak and marinade together in the hot skillet, adding honey to caramelize the steak, until steak is cooked through, about 5 minutes. Garnish bulgogi with green parts of green onions.
