A rare situation

Documenting Dinner – Bulgogi with One Thousand Sesame Seeds

without comments

Bonus trivia: this is the 200th post on my blog in *checks* six and a half years, wow.

So yes, my last post featured dinner photography too. Maybe this is a secret cry for a job as an amateur foodpornographer! More than likely, however, it happens that Courtney and I make some fine-looking food. Tonight we took a flank steak out of the freezer and turned that sucker into Bulgogi with One Thousand Sesame Seeds. I can’t remember where we got the recipe. We have it on a piece of paper that is clearly a printoff from some untitled Notepad text file. With apologies to the recipe’s originator I replicate it here.


  • A flank steak
  • One thousand sesame seeds – 2 tbl is acceptable as a substitute
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 5 tbl soy sauce
  • 2.5 tbl sugar
  • 2 tbl minced garlic
  • 2 tbl sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper


Mix all non-steak ingredients together, pour over the steak, let marinate for an hour at least.


Preheat grill to…um, hot.



Sear on one side for a couple minutes…


…and then the other.


Continue flipping it every few minutes until you have a rare medium situation.


Remove from grill, let it sit for a bit, then slice into slices.


Serve over rice or whatever!
