Best way to reheat bulgogi?

SO apparently couldn't resist our favorite Korean place today and picked up a few orders of bulgogi on the way home. The restaurant is only 30 minutes away, but I imagine that it'll be cool by the time he gets home. I know that many prefer and do eat it cold, but we prefer it warm. Any tips? Just a quick nuke in the microwave on low power until warm?

  1. I also had bulgogi for lunch today, brought the leftovers home to my son, & he is eating it, room temp, out of the box, but I would reheat in the microwave. The dumplings are still pretty good unreheated-I ate at Joong Mi, in Annandale, my specialicious coupon was expiring...

    1. NO MICROWAVE sorry for yelling.
      Quick toss in a hot Pan should do the trick. You may want to use nonstick since there is sugar in the marinate just do not over heat pan before adding the meat.

          not if it is nonstick or well seasoned cast iron

      1. i'd reheat in a nonstick skillet on low-medium heat with a half-cover on the skillet. maybe medium proper, and depending on how moist it is, i might sprinkle in just a few drops of water. just a few drops.

        1. a little spray of h2o (a very little) and under the broiler or in a hot fry pan . Be really brave and try a torch.

            If only I had a torch that would be a good time.
