  • 1.5 pounds thinly sliced beef I use stir fry beef
  • 1 onion chopped finely


  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger grated
  • 1/2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 6 ounces green beans
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1/2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 tbsp brown sugar


  • 2 cups Jasmine rice
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Gochujang sauce
  • scallions chopped



  • Combine all marinade ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Place beef in bowl and let sit for at least 30 minutes.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown each individual piece of beef for about 30 seconds a side. Remove each piece of beef as it cooks and return cooked beef to the marinade bowl.
  • Once beef has finished, add chopped onion to skillet. Cook until softened about 5 minutes.
  • Add beef and marinade back to skillet. Turn to low and cover. Simmer for about 5 minutes.


  • Fill a medium sized bowl with water and ice. Set aside.
  • Bring about 3 cups of water to a boil in a medium sized pot. Add carrots and green beans. Boil for 3 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer vegetables to the prepared ice water.
  • Let vegetables cool, then use slotted spoon to transfer to another bowl.
  • Combine vinegar, sesame oil, and brown sugar. Pour over vegetables and toss well.


  • Bring 3 cups of water and salt to a boil. Stir in rice and cover. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes, or until water is absorbed.
  • Serve beef with sauce over rice. Top with scallions and Gochujang sauce.


Gochujang sauce is spicy. If you're sensitive to spice, use sparingly, or not at all.
