These steak bowls come together quickly, are flavorful, and a great way to add a lot of veggies into dinner!
It's not included in the recipe below, but you can also make a pot of rice and add the rice to your bowl. I layered mine rice, veggies, steak, dressing.
Korean BBQ Steak Bowls with Spicy Sesame Dressing
2/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup mirin (sweet cooking rice wine)
1 Tablespoon fresh minced ginger
1 Tablespoon sesame oil
2-3 Tablespoons brown sugar
1-2 Tablespoons sambal oelek (spicy chili paste)
5 cloves garlic
Steak Bowl Ingredients
1 lb top sirloin steak, thinly sliced
3 bell peppers, thinly sliced or spiralized
2 handfuls of spinach leaves
1 Tablespoon vegetable or olive oil
Optional toppings: green onions or scallions, sesame seeds, wonton strips
1. Combine all dressing ingredients together in a blender or food processor and pulse until smooth. Or combine all ingredients in a bowl (mince the garlic first) and stir together, if you prefer.
2. Place the sliced steak in a ziplock bag and pour just enough dressing to cover the meat, reserving the rest. (I reserve about 1/3 of the sauce.)
3. Heat the oil in a heavy pan over high heat. Remove the steak from the marinade, discard the used marinade, and cook the steak for 1-2 minutes, without stirring it around. Flip the steak and cook for another minute, or just until done. Remove the steak from the pan.
4. Either toss the steak and veggies together with the remaining dressing or layer the veggies in a bowl and top with the steak, drizzling the remaining dressing over the top. Top with your choice of toppings.
