Tbsp. olive oil

medium yellow onion, diced

garlic cloves, minced

lb. lean ground beef

kosher salt, to-taste

Spicy Bulgogi sachet

cup cilantro, roughly chopped

puff pastry, thawed

Egg wash

Step 1

Heat the olive oil in a saute pan over medium high heat. Add the onion and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and the ground beef, season with kosher salt, and stir to cook, breaking up any large chunks of meat. Once the beef has cooked through, add the Spicy Bulgogi sachet, and stir to coat the beef. Remove from the heat, add the roughly chopped cilantro, and stir to incorporate.

Step 2

Pre-heat the oven to 400°F.

Step 3

Using a knife, cut the sheets of puff pastry into 18 three inch squares or 9 squares  per sheet. Using a rolling pin to thin out the pastry square. It should increase in size to about 4 inches.

Step 4

Scoop out 2-3 tablespoons of the meat mixture and place it in the upper left hand size of the square. Fold up diagonally to create a triangle. Using a fork, crimp the edges of the pastry shut.

Step 5

Optionally, cut slits into the top to vent and brush with egg wash for that classic glistening finish. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.
