Ingredients for Air Fryer Bulgogi with Zucchini

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons mirin
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, grated
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 large zucchini (about 10 ounces), halved lengthwise and cut on the bias into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 pound thinly sliced ribeye or other thinly sliced beef (see Cook’s Note)
  • Toasted sesame seeds and white rice, for serving

Directions for Air Fryer Bulgogi with Zucchini

  1. Preheat a 6-quart air fryer to 400 degrees F.
  2. Whisk the soy sauce, sugar, mirin, sesame oil, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and 2 tablespoons water together in a large bowl until most of the sugar is dissolved and the marinade is homogenous. Set aside 1 tablespoon of the marinade in a medium bowl, add the zucchini and 1/4 teaspoon salt and toss well until coated. Add the beef to the remaining marinade and toss until the beef is well coated.
  3. Transfer the marinated beef to the air fryer basket and air fry until the ribeye is browned on top and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Carefully transfer the beef to a serving plate and without cleaning the basket transfer the marinated zucchini to the basket and air fry until the zucchini is browned on top and cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes.
  4. While the zucchini is cooking, tear the beef into bite-size pieces. Transfer the zucchini to the same serving plate with the beef and pour the residual marinade from the bottom of the air fryer over the beef. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve with rice.

  • Beef – Beef is the culinary name for meat from cattle.In prehistoric times, humans hunted aurochs and later domesticated them. Since then, numerous breeds of cattle have been bred specifically for the quality or quantity of their meat. Today, beef is the third most widely consumed meat in the world, after pork and poultry. As of 2018, the United States, Brazil, and China were the largest producers of beef.Beef can be prepared in various ways; cuts are often used for steak, which can be cooked to varying degrees of doneness, while trimmings are often ground or minced, as found in most hamburgers. Beef contains protein, iron, and vitamin B12. Along with other kinds of red meat, high consumption is associated with an increased risk of colorectal cancer and coronary heart disease, especially when processed. Beef has a high environmental impact, being a primary driver of deforestation with the highest greenhouse gas emissions of any agricultural product.
