Recipe

A tasty Korean Beef and Cabbage Stir-fry with a homemade stir-fry that savory, sweet, and slightly spicy.

Whenever I need dinner in a rush, I immediately think about stir-fries. Not only do they cook up quick, it's a great way to squeeze in lots of extra vegetables. Lately I have been loving Korean flavors which normally involve combine savory, sweet, and spicy elements. With that in mind, I made a marinade/stir-fry sauce for this dish using soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, green onions, and a touch of Sriracha. The sirloin steak marinates in this mixture first and then the marinade becomes your sauce and helps the cabbage cook more quickly.

The only important thing to remember is that when cooking a stir-fry you want really high heat and you don't want the steak to boil in the liquid. So make sure to really drain off the excess marinade from the steak and don't be afraid to drain of extra liquid while cooking the steak. This will ensure the steak gets nicely browned on the outside and stays tender.

    Yummy! Added some red pepper flakes and some additional cabbage to make it a larger portion. Loved it, and so did my picky husband. Had enough for lunch leftovers, and it was even better the next day. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    Made this dish last night for dinner. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. Tasted so much like the bulgogi we used to get at our local Korean restaurant way back when we lived in California. The only thing I would change would be to add more cabbage. Seemed to have lots of steak but not nearly enough cabbage for us. Oh, I did not have sesame oil on hand so I used peanut oil instead. Still tasted fantastic!!
