Freezer Friendly Crock Pot Bulgogi {Korean Beef}

My homeland food has just turned Southern! It’s crockin’ and it’s delish’. I’ve taken my original family recipe and made it into a freezer friendly crock pot meal. If you haven’t tried bulgogi, a Korean beef dish, you’ve got to try this super easy recipe even if you haven’t got a Asian hair on your head :)

I’m blessed to have this tradition continuing in our family thanks to my wonderful American mother who turned it into a family heritage night.

Look at all that amazing gravy it crocks up with the marinade. Put plenty of it on your brown rice. Grab some chop sticks (even if you have to rubber band them together) and make some family memories with this crock pot meal.

Frugal Meat Tip: Purchase a chuck roast on sale, crock and shred the beef at the end.
