    This was very easy to make and has some nice subtle flavours. You honestly wouldn't think there is so much garlic in there. I would personally like a little bit more spice, so next time I will add a tablespoon of gochujang for a bit more kick.

    As a fan of Korean Bulgogi I was not expected to be wow’d, but this was a great tasting, simple recipe.

    Really easy and delicious. I plan on making it again, but when I do I’m going to add extra on the seasonings. I like to taste the food before it reaches my mouth 🤤

    It turned out great. We loved it and adding it to our family weekly menu.
    Bulgogi flavour and ground beef doesnt mix well for me. It’s also a lil too sweet for me so I recommend gradually adding the sugar. However I recommend for people who are new to korean cuisine or for people who want a fast and cheaper option. I also think kids would like this. But for me it was just a lil too weird haha

    This recipe is amazing! Instead of the apricot jelly I did a half apricot jelly and half cherry jelly aandI worked soo good! there is so much flavor I highly recommend.

    Came out really well! I couldn’t find apricot jam at publix, so I used my mom’s homemade Thai jelly and it added some nice heat. I would definitely make this again.

    I was delighted by this plate, my family loved it too. I put gochujang in extra and it turn out very good ! Moreover next time I will put less soy sauce or get some clear soy sauce cause it was a little bit too salty.

    The flavor is pretty good, but bulgogi made with ground beef pales in comparison to steak

    Super easy to make but didn’t taste much like actual Korean bulgogi. Omitted plum sauce because I couldn’t find any but it still turned out okay.

    I can't believe how good this is! And SO easy to throw together! I leave out the mirim and jam though because I don't even know what mirim is and we seldom have jam, but yum! This tastes a lot like the lettuce wrap filling at PF Changs to me! We serve it with iceberg lettuce cups and jasmine rice! My new weekly meal!

    So flavorful! I was a tad worried by the amounts of everything but I followed the recipe and it turned out so well! Goes PERFECTLY with white rice.

    I’d never had bulgogi before so I didn’t know what to expect, but it was easy to mix and cook Will definitely make again!

    Wow wow wow! This was so easy and so delicious. I've never made anything like this, so my expectations weren't too high, but this blew them out of the water! I didn't have the plum extract, and I didn't bother substituting anything else for it. It didn't taste like anything was missing. I also didn't have sesame seeds. I followed everything else to the letter and served it with jasmine rice. I'm a huge fan and will definitely be making this again!

    Family loved it and have made it twice since then. Added some chili flakes just to give a bit more heat.

    I wanted to make something with ground beef besides a Mexican dish, and this was really good! Very filling, the bulgogi flavor was spot on. I didn’t have plum sauce or apricot I used strawberry jam. All I had! And it was still great. Highly recommend.
