For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

I don’t know about you, but I adore a good steak. People can be a little fussy with how they like their steak, me included!

This Korean BBQ Beef (Bulgogi), combines soy, ginger and garlic and if you’re a fan of Asian flavours, you will love this.

As you can see from the photo’s of our Korean BBQ Beef (Bulgogi), we like our steak medium rare, if you prefer it a little more well done, that’s cool.

I’m one of these sad people who usually cooks a steak with a thermometer in hand to measure the internal temp of the steak. Steak for me has to be perfectly cooked.

Sometimes though this isn’t always practical! Especially when I’m cooking for more than just the two of us, or if we have umpteen side dishes also on the go.

All too often, a busy kitchen results in an over done steak. Meh. I really didn’t want this beautiful Sirloin in this Korean BBQ Beef (Bulgogi) to be ruined, so I used my Tefal OptiGrill.

When we were asked to take the Tefal OptiGrill for a spin, I was super skeptical.

I was wondering how on earth a grill can measure the thickness of meat and then cook it to your exact likeness?!

This skeptic is now a believer, and the Tefal OptiGrill actually does everything it says on the box, and then some.

If you’re not confident cooking meat, and want to have that confidence (not to mention you’ll never waste money on ruining expensive ingredients), then the Tefal OptiGrill is for you.

There’s also a fantastic grease drainage system. Meaning none of the grease ends up in your meal.

The Tefal Optigrill is also super easy to clean, which is essential in my opinion. There’s nothing worse than a new kitchen gadget that is a chore to clean…

We all know what happens to those gadgets! They end up banished to the cupboard of doom, never to see the light of day again. The Tefal OptiGrill will not become one of these!

Where can I buy the Tefal OptiGrill?

You can grab them from most major retailers, and of course Amazon.co.uk!

    1. Hi Tracey,

      You can cook this in a hot frying pan for around 3-5 minutes per side, depending on the depth of your steak and how you like your steak cooked 😊
