Grilled Korean Beef

How was everyone's weekend?
I hope all the moms had a fabulous Mother's Day!
 The weather is finally turned 
into somewhat of a spring season.
That makes me happy :)
I can use the grill and get back to all the 
great stuff that comes along with spring and summer. 
I want to try and broaden my horizons with the grill this year.
I can't wait to share the new the recipes with all of you.

1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup rice vinegar
3 scallions, white and 2 inches of the green parts, finely chopped, plus additional chopped scallions for garnish
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 2-inch piece fresh ginger, finely chopped
1 1/2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
2 teaspoons hot red pepper flakes
1 1/2 pounds sirloin steak cut onto 1 inch cubes
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Skewers for the kebabs
2 cups hot cooked rice

Combine the soy sauce, vinegar, scallions, sugar, ginger, sesame oil, and pepper flakes in a bowl. Whisk well to blend. Reserve 1/4 cup and set aside. Pour the rest into a plastic bag with a resealable closure. Add the steak cubs and seal. Marinate in the refrigerator, turning the bag often, for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Remove the steak from the marinade and add to skewers. Season the meat with salt and pepper. 

Grill over medium heat until seared on the outside and rare to medium-rare on the inside, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a platter, cover loosely with foil, and let rest for 5 minutes. 

Either place kebabs on top of the rice or pull the meat from the skewers and spoon over rice. Drizzle with remaining reserved marinade and garnish with green onions.


  1. This is one amazing dish. Seriously, one of my all time favorite dishes and you nailed it. So glad I found your blog!

  2. My boyfriend would absolutely love this. It looks so good, I bet i'd eat all the rice.

  3. This looks fantastic Rina! We just got our first grill, (I know, WHAT?) and I plan on using it to death this summer. Hopefully not literally. I'll have to try this!

    1. That's awesome! I hope you enjoy using it as much as I enjoy mine!

  4. Can this be done in the oven with larger pieces of meat? If so, at what temperature and for how long? Thanks.

    1. Hi Tammy...
      You can use a full steak. I would sear in in a skillet a few minutes per side depending on how you like your meat cooked.

  5. We live in South Florida and grill out almost every night of the week to help keep the kitchen cooler. I am always looking for new recipes so we get a good variety and this one looks fantastic! I love Korean BBQ so I think I am going to love this one. Thanks for sharing on Tasty Tuesdays.
