  • 1 lbs sirloin steak slice thinly
  • cooking oil spray

Korean BBQ Marinade

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar or white vinegar
  • 2-3 cloves garlic
  • 1 inch ginger root or 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 pear or 1/2 apple or 1/4 cup apple juice


  • Thinly slice sirloin steak.
  • Add Korean BBQ marinade ingredients to blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
  • Add marinade to steak. Make sure to steak is covered evenly with marinade. Marinade for at least 1 hour or up to a few hours.
  • Heat grill or skillet on medium high heat. Spray grill or skillet with cooking oil spray so that the surface is covered with a thin layer of oil.
  • Once grill or skillet is heated, place sliced steak on it and spread them apart. Do not overlap. Once the bottom side is cooked, flip onto the other side. Because they are thinly sliced, they cook quickly!
  • Remove steak promptly when it is cooked. Serve and enjoy!
