I’m always looking for a new recipe to cook and challenge myself with so seeing as I’ve never tried to make Korean food before, I thought I’d give this steak, egg and rice bowl a go. (Yes, there is no egg pictured in my image above but that’s because I forgot to serve them at first! There should definitely be an egg. Please don’t forget yours…).
I thought it’d be pretty difficult to cook for some reason but it was so simple and tasted amazing. The only real challenge was trying to make sure all the ingredients were ready at the same time but since Christmas dinner was only last month, I’ve had enough recent practise with that.
So! On with the recipe:
For the steak:
3 beef steaks
8 cloves of garlic
1 tsp ginger
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp sesame oil
For the bowl:
1 bag of mixed stir-fry veg
1 cup of rice
For the Yum Yum sauce:
2 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tsp butter
1 tsp tomato paste (I used 2 tsp ketchup)
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp all purpose spice
1. To prepare the meat and marinade, first cut the steaks into thin strips and place in a mixing bowl.
2. Peel the garlic, ginger and pears and pulse in a food processor to form a paste.
3. Add the paste to the steak strips and stir.
4. Next add the soy sauce, brown sugar and sesame oil and mix well.
5. Cover and place in the fridge to marinate for 30 mins.
6. While you wait, make the Yum Yum sauce by simply mixing all ingredients together in a bowl. If you want to lighten the sauce you can add up to 2 tbsp of water to the mix.
7. When there are 5 mins left to marinate, get the rice on.
8. Before cooking the meat, discard the marinade so that you’re left with just the steak strips.
9. Heat two large pans and fry the strips in one and the veg in another for a few minutes, flipping every so often.
10. Once cooked, set the meat, veg and rice aside, and fry the eggs.
11. To assemble the bowl, first add the rice to one side before placing vegetables to the other.
12. Then place the egg in the middle and meat to the bottom before spooning the sauce on top.
13. Sprinkle with sesame seeds to finish.
