Healthy means nothing
Unless it actually tastes good!
“In order to make delicious food, you must eat delicious food.” – Jiro Ono
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 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
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).
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.
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).
Throw in the wontons and scallions just before serving.
*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!
