Korean Bulgogi Tacos
Ride the wave of one of the hottest food trends, Korean-Mexican fusion. Good fusion is a union of cuisines that often overlap ingredients. These two are naturals together, especially when you fuse Korean-style fillings with Mexican tortillas, for a true feast of flavors. Made popular on the streets of Los Angeles, these explosive-tasting “fire meat” steak tacos are sure to become one of your new favorites.
Inspired by Korean barbecue, but using a cut of steak more common in Mexican cuisine, this buffet starts with taste-budrocking tacos. For quick cooking, slice the flank steak very thin, then toss it in a Korean-style pear marinade that helps to tenderize the meat while also giving it a sweet note.
Purée nectar, soy sauce, brown sugar, scallions, sherry, vinegar, oil, garlic, and ginger in a blender or food processor for the marinade.
Add steak to a baking dish, then pour marinade over steak. Cover dish and chill 6 hours, or overnight. Discard marinade; pat steak dry.
Preheat double-burner grill pan or grill over high. Brush grill pan with oil.
Grill steak, in batches, until charred, 1 minute per side. Serve steak on tortillas with gochujang, kimchi, and sesame seeds.
