Bulgogi Sauce for Beef or Chicken

Kimi Gaines


I have mentioned my sister Corri before...she is an amazing cook...she made this sauce and we used it to marinate chicken thighs...My sister-in-law Holly is a fantastic cook also and she makes the original Bulgogi Beef. My husbands family lived in Korea for 3 years and his mom sure could make some good Korean food. Now I have a daughter in Korea eating it all the time.
