Korean-Style Grilled Beef

Don't feel confined to the usual steaks, chops and kebabs when grilling. Shake things up with Marc Matsumoto's recipe for Korean-style grilled beef in a full post on the Fresh Tastes blog.


Yield: 4-6 small servings

Occasion: ,
Theme: ,


  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup soju (or sake)
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons pureed kiwifruit (about 1/2 kiwifruit)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons grated ginger
  • 3 large cloves garlic, grated
  • 2 scallions, minced
  • Lettuce and kimchi for serving
  • 2 pounds beef (short ribs or other cut suitable for grilling)


  1. Add the soy sauce, soju, honey, kiwifruit, sesame oil, ginger, garlic and scallions to a Ziploc bag. Seal the bag and mix until all the ingredients are combined. Add the beef to the bag and marinate for at least one day.
  2. Grill the beef over medium high heat. If the fire is too hot, the beef will burn because of the sugars in the marinade. If you don’t have a grill you can also do this in a broiler or a hot cast iron skillet with some oil.
  3. After the meat is cooked to your desired doneness, let it rest for a few minutes, then slice it up. Serve with lettuce leaves and kimchi to make wraps.
