“Bulgogi” means fire meat, but don't worry: your box won't spontaneous combust. Instead, the fire simply refers to the meat being grilled. We're not grilling here, but the inspiration is there. Meaty steak strips and fresh bok choy combines with noodles and a sauce of gochujang, soy, and teriyaki. Your box may not catch fire, but your love of this meal might.
