Korean Beef & Mushroom Plate - 15 Minute Dinner!


Fresh Ingredients

  • 100 - 150 grams of Beef Steak (Sirloin, Flank Steak)
  • 4 Whole Shiitake Mushrooms (Or use mushroom of choice)
  • ½ Whole Onion
  • Whole Carrot
  • 1 Stalk Green Onion

Beef Marinade

  • 1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce
  • ½ Tablespoon Minced Garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon Mirim (Rice Wine)

Sauce Marinade

  • 2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Oyster Sauce
  • ½ Tablespoon Sugar
  • 1.25 cups of Water
  • ½ Tablespoon Sesame Oil
  • Few cracks Black Pepper

Starch Mixture (For Thickening Sauce)

  • 1 Tablespoon Potato Starch Powder (Corn Starch Powder Ok too!)
  • 3 Tablespoons Water


Prep Ingredients

  • Cut beef into thin strips. Then place into a bowl. Add in Soy Sauce (1 Tablespoon), Minced Garlic (½ Tablespoon), Mirim (1 Tablespoon). Mix and set aside to mariante while you prep other ingredients.
  • Cut Onion into thin strips. Julienne Carrots into thin strips. Dice Mushrooms into thin strips. Set aside for later.
  • Then take out a small bowl and mix Potato Starch Powder (1 Tablespoon) with Water (3 Tablespoons). Set aside for later.

Stir-fry Ingredients

  • Place some vegetable oil into a wok or frying pan. Place it on a medium-heat. Once the oil is hot, place in the marinated beef. Stir-fry the beef until its 50% cooked or until the pieces start to get a slight browning on the outside.
  • Then, add in the diced onions and carrots. Stir-fry everything until onion slices start to turn translucent. Now add in the mushroom slices. Stir-fry everything for another 30 seconds.
  • Now briefly reduce the heat - we don't want the ingredients to burn while we season. Add in Soy Sauce (2 Tablespoons), Oyster Sauce (1 Tablespoon) and Sugar (½ Tablespoon). Stir-fry everything together so it gets evenly coated.
  • Now raise the heat back to a medium-high. Add in 1.25 cups (~300 ml) of water.
  • Once it comes to boil, let it gently simmer away for 30 seconds. Now give your starch mix another stir... and add it around the pot in a circular motion. Stir the pot around until you see the sauce thicken up.
  • Turn off the heat. Finish by adding in Sesame Oil (½ Tablespoon) and Black Pepper (Few Cracks).

Plating & Serving

  • Serve over rice... and of course say, Bon Appetit!
