Literally translated as ‘Fire-meat’, Bulgogi is a store cupboard essential for spicy Asian dishes & our Korean Chilli Bulgogi spice is an incredible blend that packs serious flavour with a punch!
This blend works well as a seasoning for noodles, stir fries & rice dishes but comes into its own as a marinade or glaze.
For the simplest glaze, combine in a saucepan:
- 1 tsp Korean Chilli Bulgogi spice
- 3 Tbsp of soy sauce
- 3 Tbsp maple syrup
- 1 Tbsp rice wine vinegar (or wine vinegar)
- 1 Tbsp sesame oil
- 2 Tbsp water mixed with 1 tsp cornflour
Bring to the boil for a couple of minutes, then pour over cooked tofu, beef, prawns or chicken & stir through for a simple sauce. If you’re doing a stir fry, cook everything as usual & add this glaze/sauce near the end as you’ll only want to cook this for a minute at most or it could burn or get too thick.
This is a great way to encourage you to go meat-free as this sauce is so tasty with firm, fried tofu – you won’t even miss the meat!
Like so many in our range, this is another that’s sugar-free, gluten-free, paleo & vegan too. With no fillers or anything artificial, our unique blend of herbs & spice create the purest, freshest flavour possible to give your food attitude.
This makes it ‘free’ on all the slimming plans we know of!
It’s easy to make the perfect marinade or drizzle: mix 1-2 tsp of Korean Chilli Bulgogi spice with a splash of oil & drizzle on beef or chicken a few hours before (overnight is best) to really absorb the flavours.
You can also mix 1 Tbsp of Korean Chilli Bulgogi spice with flour & use to coat tofu, prawns or chicken before frying.
