I’m back, here with another edition of “What did Whitney put Korean BBQ Sauce on this week?” 😉
But seriously, this sauce would be good on a shoe, ok maybe not a shoe, but it sure is tasty on Slow Cooked Korean BBQ Meatballs, Grilled Korean BBQ Salmon and my personal favorite, Slow Cooked Korean BBQ Chicken Tacos!
The best part is, the sauce is super easy to make, so you can have this Korean BBQ Beef & Noodle Bowl on the table for dinner in under 30 minutes!
It’s sweet, spicy, saucy and oh-so-scrumptious!
Korean BBQ Sauce
- ¾ cup brown sugar
- ¾ cup soy sauce (Tamari for gluten-free)
- ¼ cup mirin
- ¼ cup water
- 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
- 1 ½ tbsp chili paste
- ½ tbsp sesame oil
- ½ tsp ground black pepper
- ½ tbsp fresh ginger (grated)
- 3 cloves garlic (crushed)
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- 1 tbsp water
Beef & Noodle Bowl
- 1 lb flank steak
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ tsp black pepper
- 1 tbsp corn starch
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 2 tbsp sesame oil
- 4 green onions (sliced into 1 inch sections)
- 1 tsp sesame seeds
In a large saucepan combine the first 10 ingredients of the BBQ sauce and bring to a boil, cook 5-7 minutes.
In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch and water. Add this mixture to the boiling sauce. Whisk to combine well, reduce heat to medium and cook 3-4 minutes. Turn the heat off and set the sauce aside.
Slice the steak into thin strips, then sprinkle with salt, pepper, cornstarch and brown sugar. Toss to coat well.
Add the sesame oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat, then add the beef and cook for 2-3 minutes.
Add the sauce, then cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
Add the green onions during the last minute of cooking.
While the beef is cooking, prepare the rice noodles according to package directions, generally 2-3 minutes in boiling water will do the trick.
Add the noodles to a bowl and top with the Korean BBQ sauce and beef.
Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.
Better than takeout AND in less time, a combination that can’t be beat!
