Beef Bulgogi Recipe and Wine Pairing

Fire up the grill for a Korean BBQ Style Memorial Day. 

Korean Bulgogi Beef – This dish involves marinade with a bit of spicy and sweetness. This recipe will become an instant favorite. Usually a pairing like this should avoid anything tannic, too full bodied or oaky. Try a red wine like this one with Beef Bulgogi that is high in acid, low in tannins and medium bodied such as the Glatzer Blaufrankisch from Austria.
