Marinated beef.


Yield 2
Preparation time 15 minutes + 2 hours marinating
Cooking time 10-15 mins
Main Ingredient Beef


Thinly sliced beef 440g (sirloin)

1 small size onion

1 stalk of spring onion

A dash of olive oil

For marinade sauce (mix these in a bowl, except sesame oil)

Soy sauce – 3 tbsp

Sugar – 1 tbsp

Refined rice wine – 2 tbsp

Plum Extract – 1tbsp (If you don’t have it, you can use pure pear juice instead.)

Minced garlic – 1 tsp

Pepper 3 sprinklesSesame oil – 1 tsp



Rinse the beef in cold water a couple of times . Separate the meat and put it in a big bowl. (Bugogi beef is sold in thin sliced shapes at a butcher in Korea. So if you can’t find thin sliced beef where you live, you need to thin slice the beef first. When you do so, cut the beef when it is half frozen, slicing will be easier.)

Thin slice the onion and cut the spring onion.

Put the vegetables with the meat, then add the marinade sauce.

Add the sesame oil, and stir it. (If you add sesame oil with the other sauce, it can block the sauce getting into the meat or vegetables.)

Leave the bowl for about 2 hours at room temperature.



 Pre heat the wok for 10 seconds on a high heat. Add some olive oil.

 Put the meat and vegetable into the wok. Stir it until it cooks. Don't overcook!

 Serve it on the plate
