Groovy Find: Spicy Lamb Bulgogi at Home Plus



Yes! I found this at Home Plus.  Even though I found proof somewhere that Koreans used to eat lamb, it’s not common today. Lamb can be found only in foreign supermarkets.

Until recently.

I saw this at Home Plus. Mr. Beaks Premium Chili Paste Lamb Bulgogi.



Out of the package, it’s straight up bulgogi. Just thinly sliced meat and marinade. No vegetables. I coulda added some onions and carrots, but… NAH…


It was easy to fry up, but I didn’t need to add oil to the pan. This was much greasier than its beef and pork counterparts. I had to drain the pan twice.


Too bad we didn’t have any video rolling when I tried my first morsel straight outta the pan. It was so good that it took a few minutes for my eyes to roll back to the forward position. Sweet, garlicky, very lamby–almost mutton-like. At the end was some nice heat. Like spicy lamb candy.



I just served it deopbap style over rice with some kimchi. Even Jian enjoyed it. I thought this pack would last us a couple of days, but we ate the entire pack in one sitting. Gone!

  1. I’ve always wondered if “양고기” refers to mutton, lamb, or both? How are the two distinguished in Korea? Am I really eating lamb at all these restaurants (and buying it at the store), or am I really buying mutton?
