Spicy Pork Bulgogi

This is a recipe for Spicy Pork Bulgogi. Growing up in Hawaii, I always thought that bulgogi was thin marinated beef but Bulgogi literally means "fire meat" in Korean, which refers to the cooking technique—over an open flame—rather than the dish's spiciness. The term is also applied to variations such as dak bulgogi (made with chicken) or dwaeji bulgogi (made with pork), although the seasonings are different.
