My mom received this marinade recipe from a neighbor while she lived in Seoul, South Korea, which is where I was adopted from. Mom created heritage night for my brother and me, and she served Korean bulgogi with sticky rice, kimchi and chopsticks. As a busy mom of four, I keep her tradition alive but let the slow cooker do the work!—Jackie Brown, Fairview, North Carolina

"Followed the recipe exactly and unfortunately, it was extremely bland. Will not be making this again."
