Korean beef bowls with marinated sirloin, cucumbers, carrots and rice are topped with chili aioli and sesame seeds to round out a total flavor-bomb meal.
Ingredients
  • 1 lb top sirloin steak, sliced into thin strips
  • 3½ tbsp lower sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp chili sauce (Sriracha or Gochujang)
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 cup rice, uncooked
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 2 medium-large carrots, grated or julienned
  • ½ cucumber, thinly sliced and halved
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced green onion
  • Optional garnish: 2 tbsp sesame seeds, fresh basil, chili peppers
  • **Chili Aioli**
  • 2 tbsp olive or canola-based mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp chili sauce (Sriracha or Gochujang)
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
Instructions
  1. In a gallon-sized Ziploc bag, combine soy sauce, brown sugar, chili sauce, garlic and ginger. Add steak, zip the bag and rub marinade into meat, fully coating. Place in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours.
  2. Once meat has marinated, prepare rice according to package instructions either using water or reduced-sodium stock.
  3. Prepare chili aioli by combining mayo, chili sauce and sesame oil in a small bowl and stirring to combine. Set aside.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp sesame oil. Add sliced red pepper and cook for ~2-3 minutes, tossing every 30 seconds or so, until softened. Transfer to a plate and turn up to HIGH heat. Add marinated steak and cook for ~3 minutes, tossing every 30 seconds or so. After a few minutes, add red peppers back to pan and remove from heat to avoid over-cooking (sirloin steak can get tough if overcooked).
  5. To assemble, spoon ¼th of rice into a bowl, filling up one side. Add steak and red pepper mixture to less-filled side. Add carrot ribbons and sliced cucumber. Top with a dollop of aioli, sliced green onion, sesame seeds and fresh basil (optional). Serve!
