2 pounds sirloin, sliced across the grain on the diagonal bias

3 cloves garlic, minced

3 scallions, chopped

1 onion, chopped

1/3 cup soy sauce

2 tablespoons sesame oil

2 teaspoons honey

Freshly ground black pepper

1/2 teaspoon sugar

1 tablespoon kochujang (Korean red pepper paste)

1/2 teaspoon sesame oil

1 head green leaf lettuce


  1. With the back of a knife, pound each slice of beef lightly to tenderize it. In a bowl combine the remaining ingredients. The mixture should have thick consistency. Add the marinade to the meat and mix well with your hands, making sure each piece is coated. Cover with plastic and let sit for at least 1 hour.
  2. Cook the beef in one layer on a tabletop hibachi. The meat should be well done, and the outside caramelized. In a bowl, combine sugar and kochujang. Pour sesame oil over the mixture. Serve the beef with green leaf lettuce and the kochujang mixture.
