Korean Marinated Beef
 This recipe got big thumbs up from everyone including Will & Nicole.  This recipe comes together really quick.  The longest part is cutting the beef.

Yield: 4

Korean Marinated Beef

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Thinly sliced beef served over rice is a quick and easy dinner that is family friendly. 


  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 minced garlic cloves, or 1 Tbsp
  • 1 Tbsp minced ginger
  • 6 green onions, chopped - set green parts aside for garnish
  • 3 Tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 lb flank steak, sliced thin across the grain (this is MUCH easier to do if the steak is partially frozen)
  • vegetable or olive oil


  1. Mix soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, garlic, ginger and the white parts of the green onions and 2 Tbsp of the sesame seeds together in a bowl.
  2. Add the sliced beef and marinate for about 15 minutes.
  3. After beef is done marinating, heat oil in a large frying pan over med high heat.
  4. When the pan is hot, put the beef into the pan in a single layer.
  5. Cook until the beef is done and browned.
  6. How done you make it is a personal preference thing.
  7. Continue to cook the rest of beef.
  8. Garnish the beef with the remainder of the sesame seeds and green onion tops.
