Korean BBQ Beef

This Korean BBQ Beef is so simple to throw together and the flavor is out of this world, delicious. It only has a few simple ingredients and we get the most tender meat, every time.

My husband and I both LOVE steak. This meat is SO GOOD.  My husband told me he could eat this every night and die a happy man.
It was that good.  I marinated my meat for about 8 hours so it would be really tender and flavorful.  We can’t wait to have this again.
I really think the secret was in how long we marinaded it. I let it marinate all morning and afternoon (I made it as soon as I woke up) then we had it for dinner around 5:30 pm.
It was so tender and juicy. I can only imagine the flavor if we let it marinate for 24 hours. So simple and so delicious, with all the flavors of summer. You will love this recipe.

how could i make this recipe more healthy?

For this recipe, we used a little bit of brown sugar, just for the marinade. You won’t be able to tell much of a difference without it, but it does add the perfect sweetness.

If you are trying to make this recipe more healthy, we recommend cutting it out or replacing it with honey or pure maple syrup.

Both are great alternatives, and natural sweeteners.

what other way could i cook this?

If you don’t have a grill, or want to make this recipe when it’s cold and a blizzard outside, no worries. You can easily cook it other ways. Here is what we recommend:

  • Broil: Broil the steak on low for about 2-3 minutes on each side. I usually do this on a cookie sheet.
  • Bake: Bake at 325 degrees for about 10-15 minutes on each side, or until you reach desired doneness.
  • Saute: I like to make mine in a pan, because I can see a little better, how well they are done. I don’t usually keep them on the skewers, instead, I take them off, and move the little pieces around the pan for about 7 minutes, flipping back and forth.

could this be a freezer meal?

For this recipe, we have never made it as a freezer meal, but you could easily turn it into one. We recommend adding the steak to a marinade in a gallon size bag, then placing it right into the freezer.

The day before you plan to grill, remove it from the freezer and let it thaw and take in the flavor for 24 hours.

Skewer, then grill.

  • 1 1/2 lb. sirloin steak, cut against the grain into thin (about 1/4?) slices
  • 1/2 c. rice wine or pear juice (1 4 oz. bottle of pear juice from the baby food aisle is perfect and cheap)
  • 1/2 c. low-sodium soy sauce (regular soy sauce makes it taste vaguely like beef jerky)
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1 tsp. Sriracha chili sauce
  • 1 1/2 tsp. sesame oil


  1. Combine wine or pear juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, chili sauce, and sesame oil in a large bowl.
  2. Add sliced steak. Marinate at room temperature for 1 hour or up to 8 hours in the refrigerator.
  3. Preheat the grill. While the grill is heating, thread the steak pieces onto bamboo skewers.
  4. Cook over medium-high heat for about 3-4 minutes per side, being careful not to let the meat get too cooked.
  5. Serve immediately; serves 4-6.

  1. I just made this for dinner tonight. I was nervous because I wasn't sure if I used the right ingredient. I had rice vinegar, not rice wine so that was what I used. It was fantastic! Even hubby who normally say it's ok, said it's good!! Definitely a keeper! Thanks for the recipe!
