Bulgogi (Korean Barbeque)

Every year for our family Christmas party we choose a different cuisine. We've done Italian, Mexican, Chinese, Traditional Christmas dinner... anyway, this year we chose Chinese/Asian cuisine. I usually make my Hot & Sour Soup but this year I wanted to try something different. Beef Bulgogi. It is AMAZING.
1/2 cup sugar 1/2 cup dark soy sauce 1/2 can pear halves, mashed
1lb  sirloin (use your favorite cut of steak) thinly sliced 2 tbsp  ginger, minced 3 tbsp garlic, minced 3 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp Siriacha  hot sauce
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
Garnish with sliced green onions & sesame seeds
 Combine the sugar, soy sauce, mashed pears, onion, ginger, garlic, Sriracha, and cilantro in a large zip-close bag. Add the beef to the bag. Push out any air and zip close. Gently massage the beef with the marinade. Refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight. Saute beef in batches over med-high heat... if you add it to the pan all at once the meat will "sweat" and you don't want that. Cook until the beef is cooked through and the edges are crispy and deep golden brown. Sprinkle with green onions & sesame seeds. Delicious served with rice. ENJOY the deliciousness!!
