Bulgogi sauce (marinade)

In order to make a delicious dish, you need to take a beef or pork tenderloin. The standard of living in South Korea is high, so they do not exchange for meat with veins and bones, they try to take the best piece of meat.

For the marinade, we will need garlic, soy sauce, mirin, powdered ginger. In fact, this is the usual standard set of spices for the Asian part of the planet, whether it is South Korea, China or Japan. This is the basis of almost all sauces. Cut the meat into thin strips and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours. The meat will be soaked with spices and it will turn out just great.
