Slow Cooker Korean Fire Meat

Have you ever had Korean Fire Meat, or bulgogi?  It's a grilled marinated beef that is sliced very thin and eaten wrapped in a lettuce leaf.  It's really yummy.

However my kids aren't really into eating mat wrapped in lettuce, so I adapted the recipe to fit into their food comfort zone.  Meat and rice.  

I've combined the same flavors into a slow cooker version of Korean Fire Meat.  The meat marinates while it slow cooks in a mixture of soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil and garlic.
I've been making this for a long time.  It's a fun way to slow cook a beef roast.  We eat it on rice topped with a little of the marinade broth, toasted sesame seeds and sliced green onions.  Or you can wrap the meat in a lettuce leaf, like traditional Korean Fire Meat. 

And the best part is it takes only a few minutes to prep and you have a yummy dinner waiting for you later that day.  A great Sunday dinner idea!



Slow Cooker Korean Fire Meat

  • 2 - 3 lb beef roast
  • 1/3 c. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 c. soy sauce
  • 1/2 c. beef broth
  • 1.5 Tbsp. sesame oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 T. Tbsp. sesame seeds, lightly toasted
  • thinly sliced green onion
  1. Pat roast dry and sprinkle with sugar (using more if you have a large roast and less if you have smaller roast). It just needs to have a layer of sugar over the top. Place roast in slow cooker.
  2. Mix together soy sauce, beef broth, sesame oil and garlic cloves. Pour over beef into slow cooker.
  3. Cook on low for 8 hours or until beef shreds easily.
  4. Shred meat and pour some broth mixture over it, so it's not dry.
  5. Top with lightly toasted sesame seeds and sliced green onion.
  6. Serve over steamed rice or wrap in a lettuce leaf.

One Hour Rolls

These rolls are amazing!  I've been making these rolls since 2001 when I was a newlywed and my sister-in-law shared the recipe with me.  The rolls are light, fluffy, easy to make and they only take one hour!  And delicious too!   I've made these rolls more times than I can count, so I've perfected the art of making them.  Here are some step-by-step instructions with pictures for you. Here's what you'll need.  I buy pretty much all of the ingredients in this recipe at Sam's club, thus the huge containers.  You need warm water, yeast, oil, sugar, salt, egg and flour. In the mixer bowl, add warm water (not hot), oil, sugar and yeast.  Mix together. After ten or fifteen minutes the yeast mixture should be puffed up like this.  Time to add the salt and beaten egg. Then mix in the flour.  (I've used a mixture of half wheat and half white flour successfully.) Keep adding flour until the dough is manageable.  It will be a little sticky, b

The Best French Bread I've Ever Made

This is the best french bread I've ever made.  I got this recipe from my friend, Nikki, who gave us some of this bread as a thank you for my hubby helping them move a piano.  I remember it being delicious and we gobbled it up fast.  I was intimidated for some reason by the recipe and waited a few years before I made it. We needed some bread for to make some turkey, provolone, avocado sandwiches, so I made some of this bread and it was perfect!  We sliced one loaf like they do at Subway.  Then later I made normal shaped sandwiches with the rest of the bread.  Delicious... light and fluffy and yummy! Update 2/22/12: This is still my favorite bread after making it for a year! It turns out perfect every time and it's gone in a flash! printable recipe French Bread recipe from my friend, Nikki Yield: 2 loaves   Ingredients 2 c. warm water 1 pkg (or 1 heaping Tbsp.) yeast 1/4 c. granulated sugar 1 T. olive oil

My notes: I usually half this recipe and it fills up almost a whole cookie sheet or a pizza stone. If you want to
