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 husband's 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.

We had Kitchen Crew members raving that this is the best Korean dish they've ever had! Sweet and spicy, this is Bulgogi sauce is an accessible way to begin exploring Korean cooking. Use this for chicken or beef - both are delicious. If there is an issue locating Chinese bean paste, it can be left out. We tried it both ways and it still has tons of flavor without it.
