    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.
