Korean Style Spicy Beef is a dish made out of thinly sliced bee pieces in a sweet, savoury spicy sauce that is usually found on Korean Buffet restaurants.




  • 500 g thinly sliced flank steak, rump steak or sukiyaki cut beef
  • 4 stalks spring onions, chopped
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp grated ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • salt
  • toasted sesame seeds, to garnish
  • oil


  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp mirin
  • 3/4 cup beef stock
  • 2 tbsp gochujang, add more if you want it spicier
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch


  1. In a bowl combine all sauce ingredients together then set it aside.
  2. In a plate place your beef then lightly season it with freshly ground black pepper and salt. Sprinkle cornstarch and toss beef to coat.
  3. Place wok in a stove top, heat oil in high heat. Once oil is smoking add the beef (do not overcrowd, do it in batches), stir fry until beef is brown on all sides. In very high heat this might take 2 minutes or less per batch. Set aside the beef.
  4. Using the same wok add oil if needed then sauté garlic and ginger.
  5. Add the beef back together with the spring onions, stir fry to combine then pour the prepared sauce. Bring to a boil and simmer in high heat until sauce becomes thick in texture. Cook for 3-4 minutes then turn heat off.
  6. Place beef in serving bowl then garnish with toasted sesame seeds.
