Strip District Meats

Grilled Marinated Hanger Steak Bulgogi Style


1/2 cup Korean chile bean paste (gochu-jan)
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 tablespoon minced ginger
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup thin soy sauce
1 tablespoon coarse ground black pepper
1 cup canola oil
1/4 cup sesame seed oil
1 cup chopped scallions
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
3 pounds hanger steak, sinew removed
Sliced green scallions, for garnish
Fried shallots, for garnish (optional)


In a food processor, add chile paste, garlic, ginger, vinegar, sugar, soy and black pepper. Blend well than drizzle in the oils. While still running, add the scallions and cilantro. Check for seasoning. It should not be salty since salt is added right before grilling. Remove 1/2 cup of the marinade and reserve for sauce. In a dish, completely coat the hanger with remaining marinade and let marinate overnight. On a hot, oiled grill, season hanger with salt and grill, about 8 minutes for medium-rare.



1/2 cup of above marinade
1/2 teaspoon of salt
Juice of 1 lemon

Mix all in a bowl.
