1.5 pounds skirt or flank steak or skirt steak sliced into strips

4 scallion chopped

2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds

1 cup soy sauce

1 tablespoons toasted sesame oil

1 teaspoons fresh ginger grated

2 cloves garlic minced

3 tablespoons mirin

2 tablespoons white vinegar

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

2 carrots finely cut

3 cup finely shredded cabbage

2 tablespoons cilantro finely chopped

2 scallions sliced thin

1 teaspoons sriachia

1 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

1 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

2 tablespoons mirin

0.5 teaspoons orange zest

0.5 teaspoons lime zest



In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except lettuce and toss. Let marinate for at least 1 hour, no more than 3 hours. Once you are ready to grill the beef, pour your marinade into a sauce pan and reduce by half. It should get a syrupy consistency. Pre-heat a grill pan and cook until steak begins to char. Remove from the grill and let rest. Serve with Asian slaw (recipe follows.)


Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and toss. Refrigerate at least 1 hour. To assemble your wraps, lay one full piece of Boston lettuce down and top with a few slices of the bulgogi beef. Top with the slaw.
