Pul Goki (Sesame Beef)

Several years ago our university held an International Dance Festival, and asked local families to host foreign dancers. My family volunteered, and we had two Koreans come to stay with us. While they were at our house they cooked a Korean meal for us, and this is what they served (it is also known as Bulgogi). It is delicious and has always been one of my favorites!
Limi doesn’t like Soy sauce or Ramen noodles (or anything like it), and this uses both, so I knew I was taking a risk to make it for him, but my craving won over. When he tried it he was blown away, and loved it! And he asked if he could have the left overs for lunch tomorrow. :)


1 1/2 lb. beef (sirloin, round, top, chuck)
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 TBS sesame seeds
2 TBS sugar
2 TBS vegetable oil
1 tsp garlic powder
(or 2 cloves of fresh garlic)
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 green onion, chopped
3 Spicy Asian noodle packages (Ramen Noodles, Noodle Bowl or other type)


To make the marinade, combine all the ingredients, except the beef and noodles, in a bowl. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Set aside. 
Slice the beef into very thin strips. Put the beef in the marinade mixture. Stir until coated. Cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours. 
Once the meat has marinated, broil, grill or saute the beef strips until cooked. Cook the noodles according to the package directions.
Serve the Pul Goki over the noodles.
