Hidden Valley Foods does bulgogi on Dino Days

What's 'bulgogi" (pronounced bull- go -gee)? It is a traditional Korean dish composed of thin slices of grilled beef that has been marinated in sauce and spices, usually with some delicious sauteed onions. I know this because I was lucky to get an early taste of the dish from Eddie. If you love beef you are going to love this dish, the marinade and spice don't overpower the meat and eaten with some rice goes down a treat! I will definitely be lining up to buy some and you can too in the town square during/after the Dino Days parade. What's very nice is that Eddie is going to donate everything he makes selling bulgogi to the fireworks fund! What a fantastic gesture!
