Yield: 6 servings
|2 pounds||Beef filet or sirloin|
|1 tablespoon||Toasted sesame seed *|
|4 tablespoons||Light soy sauce|
|2 tablespoons||Minced scallions|
|Tabasco sauce to taste|
|1||Clove garlic, minced|
|½ teaspoon||Freshly grated ginger|
* Toasted sesame seed: Place 1 cup sesame seed and 1 teaspoon salt in a skillet, brown seeds slowly until they are toast colored and puffed. Stir constantly while toasting. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Pulverize seeds in a mortar or a blender. Store in a tightly capped bottle.
Cut beef into very thin strips and pound to flatten; then cut into medium size squares. Combine all the other ingredients. The marinade, as the name of the dish implies, should be quite fiery. Mix meat and marinade and set aside for 4 to 5 hours, or longer if refrigerated. Broil very quickly over hot charcoal, dip in Bulgoki sauce (next recipe) and serve immediately with white rice.
NOTE: The marinated beef can also be fried in hot peanut oil for just a few minutes.
