We love going to a Korean BBQ restaurants. This recipe was great, simple to put together and Little Miss and Hubby (I don't eat read meat) said it tasted wonderful. I followed the recipe except I used chives instead of spring onions/green scallions, it was all I had a home and I wanted to use them before they expired. Hubby said all the elements to the dish went really well together (the lettuce rub, the soy/sesame scallions/chives and the beef). I double the recipe and served it as a main with rice, kimchi and cherry tomato salad. Thank you so much for a simple dish Elmotoo

Wonderfully fresh and crisp tasting dish and I loved the flavour that came through from the sesame oil and seeds. The slight bite of the chili combined with the lettuce was great as well. I had a fresh red chili that needed using so used that finely diced instead of the powder which also added a little extra texture to the mix. Rather than slice the steak especially thinly I left it somewhat thick because I was serving as a main course so used less lettuce per serve but the same quantities of everything else.

Ok... I am giving this recipe 5 stars even though I haven't tried it and here is why. In high school I had a friend named Cory who's father was Korean, and would make this EXACT dish for us on nights we had study dates. It was the most delicious, out of control meal. I was over the moon to find this recipe, it will very soon become one of my regular staples... Thanks!

Oh my gosh did I love this one. I knew I was in for a treat and I was not disappointed. The marinade is to die for. I'm a massive fan of san choy bow and thought this was an interesting play on the idea. But this beats it hands down. Thanks so much Elmotoo I can't wait to have ppl over and serve this to them.
