Korean Beef Stir Fry


(Public for All)

When we lived in Japan, we all liked to go out and eat Korean BBQ. This is a stir-fry recipe with much the same taste.


  • One lb whatever beef looks good to you.
  • 1/2 Cup Soy Sauce
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Green Onions, including tops
  • 1 Tbs Sesame Oil
  • 1 Tbs Corn Flour
  • 2 Cups White Rice
  • 4 Cups Water (double the rice capacity)
  • 1 Bunch Cilantro
  • 1 Clove Garlic, sliced thinly.


Cut Beef into thin stips suitable for stir-frying. Put into a mixing bowl. Add Soy Sauce, Onions, Sugar and Sesame Oil. Stir until mixed. Cover bowl with clear plastic wrap and store in fridge to marinate. If you can, leave beef in fridge for an hour or longer for the flavor penetrate into the beef.

When ready, combine rice, water, garlic, and part of the cilantro in a saucepan. Two cups is a lot of rice, so whatever amount you wish to cook, just remember to use twice as much water as you do rice. Bring to boil, then turn to simmer, and place a tight lid on the saucepan.

Place 1 Tbs light oil in a wok and heat. With slotted spoon, add beef to wok, keeping marinade to one side. Whisk corn flour into maranade mixture. Stir fry the beef until it reaches desired doneness, then add maranide with corn flour. Continue cooking until mixture thickens.

Place rice on a plate or bowl. Spoon beef and thickened sauce on top and serve with side vegetable. We liked broccoli and mushrooms, but that (as they say) is another story.
