Korean Beef Yum Yum Bowls

I decided to give this dish to try last night. It’s a little bit harder than I thought. I even had to poach an egg, which I have never done before.

This recipe comes from This website has become my absolute favorite website to get recipes from.


1 lb top sirloin steak

1/2 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup unseasoned natural rice vinegar

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

1 tablespoon grated fresh gingerroot

3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1/3 cup mayonnaise

2 tablespoons Sriracha sauce

2 teaspoons honey

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

3 cups small broccoli florets

4 eggs

3 cups cooked short-grain white rice (sushi rice)

2/3 cup kimchi, roughly chopped


1 Wrap beef in plastic wrap or butcher paper, and place in freezer 30 minutes to firm up. Cut beef across the grain into thin slices, about 1/8 inch thick.

2 In large bowl, mix soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, sesame oil, gingerroot, garlic and red pepper flakes. Measure 2/3 cup of the soy mixture, and set aside. Add beef to remaining soy mixture in large bowl, and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate to marinate at least 30 minutes but no longer than 2 hours.

3 Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix mayonnaise, Sriracha sauce and honey. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

4 Add reserved 2/3 cup soy sauce mixture to 2-quart saucepan. Heat to boiling over medium-high heat. Boil 3 to 5 minutes or until sauce is reduced to 1/4 cup and slightly thickened. Remove from heat; set aside.

5 In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat until hot. Use slotted spoon to remove beef from soy mixture. Discard remaining soy mixture leftover from the beef. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, turning once, until just starting to turn pink. With slotted spoon, transfer beef to the saucepan with the reduced sauce, and toss to coat. Do not clean skillet.

6 Heat skillet over medium-high heat. Add broccoli; cook 2 to 4 minutes, stirring constantly, until just tender. Remove from heat.

7 In 10-inch skillet, heat 1/2 to 1 inch of water to boiling. When water comes to a rolling boil, reduce heat until water is just simmering (bubbles rise slowly and break just below the surface).

8 Break egg into custard cup, small bowl or saucer. Hold custard cup close to water’s surface, and carefully slip egg into water. Repeat with remaining eggs.

9 Cook eggs 3 to 5 minutes or until whites and yolks are firm and not runny. Carefully remove eggs with a slotted spoon.

10 Divide rice among 4 serving bowls; top with beef, kimchi, broccoli, poached egg and reserved mayonnaise mixture.
