Beef Bulgogi Tacos

Beef Bulgogi Tacos

Beef Bulgogi Tacos are quick & tasty, thanks to starting with the Bulgogi from Costco, already thin-sliced, with onions and a Korean BBQ sauce. All it’s missing is the spicy heat from green chiles.

Ever tried the Beef Bulgogi from Costco? I’d seen it alongside the prepared mac & cheese, chicken alfredo, stuffed peppers & other prepared dishes by the rotisserie chickens. But try it? Duh, who ever heard of bulgogi? Well, I finally tried it … and it’s really good. It’s uncooked thin sliced beef (something like flank steak) with onions and a sweet Korean bbq sauce. Want a recipe for making bulgogi from scratch? Here’s a good one. Just brown it in a skillet & you’re good to go. It’s full of flavor, but is it spicy? No, no heat. To me, adding some heat with green chiles was just a no-brainer. Sure enough, it made great tacos. (Note: entire tray of Costco Bulgogi will make about 18 tacos.)

Does it taste Southwestern? Not particularly, but the chiles help it belong in a taco. What are the ingredients? Pretty common – soy sauce, corn syrup, garlic, ginger, spices. You can see a close-up of the label at costcocouple.com/kirkland-signature-bulgogi/. If you want it to taste more Southwestern, add some cumin and cayenne, but I like it just with green chiles added. It would also be good served in a sandwich like a Philly Cheese Steak.

The Costco Bulgogi freezes well, so it’s one of those dishes I’ll keep in the freezer for those times I want to whip up something good with no effort. Hope you like this one!
