This is a very good recipe, served with kim chee and rice! Times do not include marinating time. I mix it together before work, it seems to be plenty of time. I usually serve it with rice or use it to make an 'Oriental' salad.
- 2 lbs beef, thinly sliced (any cut you prefer, I use London Broil)
- 1⁄2 cup soy sauce
- 5 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 1⁄2 tablespoons sesame seeds
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 3 shallots, thinly sliced
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- 5 tablespoons mirin
- 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes (reduce according to how spicy you like it!)
- In a large bowl, stir together the soy sauce, sugar, sesame seeds, sesame oil, shallots, garlic, mirin and crushed red chili peppers. Add the meat, and stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 12 to 24 hours.
- Remove meat and toss marinade.
- Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Fry the meat for 5 to 10 minutes, or until no longer pink.
- UPDATE: this also worked well on a grill!
Great flavors, salty, sweet, heat. Subbed siracha sauce for the pepper flakes. Grilled the steaks.
We all loved this recipe!! Very good flavor. I used green onion slices instead of the shallots, as that is what I had on hand. We cooked the meat on the barbecue and it was fantastic with steamed rice and kimchee. Thanks for posting this.
my family really liked it but i thought it was too strong
