Calories 465 kcal


  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup vegetable broth
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (1 tsp)
  • 2 green onions
  • 1 lb steak, cut into ½ inch strips
  • 2 cups cooked rice, hot


  • Mix first 8 ingredients (soy sauce through green onion) in a sealable bag or container. Add beef and allow to marinate overnight.
  • Add beef to preheated saute pan and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes. Serve over hot rice.
  • Hack: Once opened, sesame oil can be stored in a cool, dark place (kitchen cupboard away from the stove) for up to six months. It can be stored in the fridge for a year or more.
  • Hack: Do you know that you can freeze fresh ginger root? Grating it in its frozen state is easier than grating it fresh and, if you choose organic ginger, you don’t have to peel it! Simply place it in a sealed freezer bag or container and pop it in the freezer.
  • Hack: Chop unused green onions and freeze them in a sealable freezer bag or container for future use.

  1. This seems like something pretty interesting that I will enjoy. I have never had Korean food before so this will be the first, tell me, is it good? I can see that it is also very easy to make so I will be sure to try it out this weekend when my family comes over to visit. 

    1. I think it’s very tasty.  It’s also easy to put together (you probably have all the ingredients already) and can be put together before your family comes over so you have more time to visit!  Enjoy!

  2. Wow, this sounds delicious, and it doesn’t seem too complicated either! Our household usually shops for daily groceries every day, so we’d have to change things up and plan ahead in order to marinate the beef overnight. I think we are all going to like the meal though – thanks so much!

    1. It’s hard to change food shopping habits but I think you’ll be happy you did in this one instance.  If you start the marinade but decide not to cook it the next day, you can freeze the uncooked meat (still in the marinade) until you’re ready to use it!
