Korean Bulgogi Stew (Bulgogi Jungol) Recipe


bulgogi jungol
Naomi Imatome
Bulgogi jungol is a hearty, delicious one-pot meal that is also a good way to use any leftover marinated bulgogi and vegetables from your fridge. I always have marinated meat in the freezer, and bulgogi jungol is one of the easiest ways to use that beef in an easy Korean stew. For an even heartier meal, add noodles to the pot.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 4


  • 2 cups marinated bulgogi
  • 1 onion, cut into strips
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • Carrots, cut into strips
  • 1/2 cup bean sprouts
  • Other bite-sized vegetables (preferable colorful) like peppers and broccoli
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup mushrooms of your choice (enoki, shiitake, button or a combination)
  • 1 block tofu
  • Salt or soy sauce to taste
  • Noodles, cellophane/dangmyun/sweet potato (optional)


  1. In a soup pot or a large wok, stir fry marinated bulgogi and onion(s) for a couple minutes. Put ALL the marinade into the pot, do not discard any liquid.
