So here you have it, a rainbow of flavors, crunch, and versatility. Inspired by a variety of authentic Korean BBQ dishes from restaurants that we very much enjoyed.

  • SPICY KOREAN BBQ SESAME STEAK BOWLS
  • SPICY KOREAN BBQ SESAME STEAK BOWLS

WHAT

SPICY SESAME DRESSING (3-4 servings)

⅔ cup low sodium soy sauce

¼ cup mirin

1 tablespoon fresh minced or crushed ginger

1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

2-3 tablespoons brown sugar

1-2 tablespoons sambal oelek (spicy chili paste)

5 cloves garlic



KOREAN BBQ STEAK BOWLS

1 lb. top sirloin steak - cut into very thin pieces

2 bell peppers (red and yellow) - spiralized or cut into strips

2 handfuls of spinach

wonton strips, scallions, and sesame seeds for topping



HOW

  1. In food processor; mix all dressing ingredients until smooth. Place the steak in a bag and cover with enough dressing to coat. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours (in the meantime you can prep the other veggies).

  2. Heat a heavy pan over high heat. Pull the steak out of the sauce (discard remaining sauce) Add steak to the pan with a little oil if necessary depending on what type of pan you are using. It should sizzle! Let the steak sit (1-2 minutes*) until golden brown sear, flip if necessary, and remove from pan. Let it finish cooking on a plate.

  3. Toss all the veggies and steak together with enough dressing to coat (you will likely have extra - save it in the fridge for another round).

  4.  Throw in the wontons and scallions just before serving.

NOTE

*How long you cook the meat for is dependent on how well-done you want your steak, but just keep it mind that it cooks quickly because it’s sliced very thinly.

Add some big bold kimchi, seaweed or a soft-boiled egg if you want Korean BBQ Steak Bowls 2.0!
