Bulgogi is a classic Korean dish that calls for grilling thin, marinated slices of beef. It's often stir-fried in a skillet when made at home. Serve with lettuce, rice, kimchi, thinly sliced scallions and jalapeno or serrano chiles, and ssamjang (Korean seasoned soybean paste), and let your guests assemble their own wraps.
