  • 1 lb. lean beef sirloin, sliced into thin strips
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • ½ cup kimchi, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp gochujang (Korean chili paste)

  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • Fresh cilantro and sesame seeds for garnish
  • Chopped fresh green onions


  1. In a small bowl, toss the beef strips with the cornstarch until evenly coated. In a large wok, heat the canola oil over high heat. Add the beef and stir-fry until browned and cooked for about 5 mins. Take the beef out from the pan and set it aside.
  2. Add the kimchi, onion, and garlic to the pan and stir-fry until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  3. Whisk together the gochujang, sugar, and toasted sesame oil in a bowl. Pour the mixture into the pan and stir to combine with the vegetables.
  4. Put the beef back into the pan and stir to coat it with the sauce. Cook for 2-3 minutes until heated through.
  5. Serve the beef and kimchi mixture over cooked brown rice. Garnish with cilantro and sesame seeds, if desired. Enjoy!
