Stir-Fried Kimchi with Prime Beef

Normally I am not a big rice person. However, whenever I made stir-fried kimchi (Korean spicy preserved napa cabbage) beef or pork, I literally had to stop myself from getting that second bowl of rice. I fell in adoration with this dish a few years ago in a Japanese restaurant. The portion was always so small which I decided I would make this a home in order to really pig out. It is super easy to make and delicious with rice.

-store bought kimchi (readily available in most Asian grocery stores), about 2-3 cups.
-green onion 2-4, depending on personal taste. I like lots of green onion, so I usually put in 3-4 for a plate enough for 4 people. Cut into section about 1-1.5 inch long. I usually cut the white part lengthwise into half before cutting into sections. This makes faster cooking.
-beef or pork thin slices, cut into 1.5-2 inch sections. I like meat with marbling so it is more tender. I made this dish with USDA thinly sliced prime beef. I usually use pork but only had beef on hand the other night. In this instance, I used about .5 lb of beef.
-2 cloves of garlic, sliced in thin slices

How To:
-sear meat quickly on hot pan, use only enough oil to avoid sticking to pan then set aside
-add another tablespoon of oil to pan and add garlic and white part of green onion. Stir-fry for about 30 second.
-add kimchi, 1/2 tablespoon of dark soy sauce and 1 teaspoon of sugar to the pan. Taste to suit your personal preference. I usually don't like my food too salty. Stir-fry about 30 seconds.
-add green part of green onion and beef and finish stir-fry for another 30 seconds.

Just make sure everything is mixed well and it is ready to eat. Have you tried kimchi or stir-fried kimchi with beef or pork before?


  1. Looks good Angela! I had to chuckle, because I'm making stir fry tonight. haha Have an awesome weekend.

  2. That looks soooo good, I don't think I've ever tried this dish before...

  3. Yum! I love kimchi and I think I would totally love this too. I usually only have a half a bowl of rice but when there is good food, I can't help but reach for a little more.

  4. Kimchi, Korean bbq and generally Korean food is drool worthy, I just love it!

  5. Omg this looks so good and easy to make - I'm pinning this right now!
