Description

Korean BBQ Yum Yum Rice Bowls: easy marinated steak, spicy kimchi, poached egg, rice, and yum yum sauce! SO good and so easy!


Ingredients

For the Steak:

  • 2 lbs. top sirloin steak
  • 8 cloves garlic
  • 1 3-inch piece ginger
  • 2 bosc pears
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil

For the Yum Yum Rice Bowls:

  • rice
  • kimchi
  • greens
  • soft-cooked eggs (like poached or fried)
  • sesame seeds
  • scallions
  • Yum Yum Sauce

Instructions

  1. MEAT PREP: Cut the steak into very thin bite-sized pieces and place in a mixing bowl. Peel the garlic, ginger, and pears. Pulse in a food processor until a paste forms. Add the paste to the meat and stir to combine. Cover everything with soy sauce, brown sugar, and sesame oil – just enough to cover and marinate. Your ratio should be roughly 4 parts soy sauce, 4 parts brown sugar, 1 part sesame oil. Mix it all up and refrigerate for 30 minutes or so.
  2. MEAT COOKING: Heat a large heavy-duty skillet over very high heat. Discard remaining marinade and add the steak to the pan. Sear for a few minutes, flipping it around once or twice, until your meat has a really nice golden brown exterior. Set aside.
  3. BOWL ASSEMBLY: Arrange the rice, kimchi, greens, and steak in a bowl. Add the egg on top and sprinkle with sesame seeds, scallions, and Yum Yum Sauce. Mwah! You’re a boss.

Notes

I don’t normally measure the marinade ingredients. If you just eyeball it so you get enough to cover (equal parts soy sauce and brown sugar, and just a quick stream of sesame oil) you should be good to go. It’s more fun to cook like that. 😉
