"I make bulgogi all the time. I learned how to make it from my Korean mother and aunt. My aunt revealed her secret for tenderizing the beef many years ago. Instead of using brown sugar, she uses Coca-Cola (not diet!) as a sweetener and tenderizer. It sounds crazy but it introduces a very unique flavor. For a pound of meat used in your demonstration, about a half to full cup of Coca-Cola does the trick. If you are ever in Charleston SC, Mama Kim's on King Street is the place to go for very good Korean food."
