KETO BEEF BULGOGI
Missing Korean food while eating low carb? I was, too. That's why I created Keto Beef Bulgogi.
On one our first dates, Sam and I went to have Korean barbecue. Because it is interactive, this style of cooking makes a fun date night. Few things bring people together more than grilling over lie fire. Beef Bulgogi is one of my favorite things to make at the restaurants and at home.
Most Beef Bulgogi recipes are loaded with sugar and (gasp) corn syrup. So that we can enjoy our favorite Korean food dishes, I created keto versions that are sugar free, gluten free, and low carb. This is one of them. I use erythritol and liquid aminos to make this recipe.

Choose this the next time you need an in-home date night. Instead of a fire pit in the table, use a griddle. Place the beef in the marinade that morning to make it easier that night. Serve with Cabbage Kimchi, Korean Spinach, and some cauliflower rice to round out the meal. Having a romantic cooking session of healthy foods? That’s KetoLuxe.
Prepare for a group by grilling the meat at one time and serving on a platter.

1/3 cup liquid aminos
4 tablespoons brown erythritol
3 cloves garlic, pressed

2 green onions, thinly sliced
- Assemble marinade by combining liquid aminos, brown erythritol, garlic, sesame oil, rice vinegar, ginger, red pepper flakes, and crushed black peppers.
- Add ribeye to marinade and let sit for at least 30 minutes. The longer, the better.
- Rub a cool grill or griddle with avocado oil.
- Heat to high and add ribeye in a single layer.
- Turn when caramelized.
- Remove pieces from heat and put on a platter*
- Serve for guests to assemble by placing in lettuce cups and topping with onions.
*For date night, put the pieces of ribeye on 1 or 2 at a time and enjoy as they come off the griddle.
