Bangja Gui

This is a good Korean dish. I'd test the chili powder before putting the whole teaspoon in - they like hot dishes.

1 ¼ lb sirloin or rib steak
½ t. salt
1 T. sesame oil
¼ t. black pepper
4 green onions; in 2" long strips
3 T. soy sauce
2 t. sesame oil
1 t. hot red chili powder
1 t. sugar
1 T toasted sesame seeds
10-12 large lettuce leaves
3 garlic cloves; sliced thin


Cut the steak into thin slices 3 inches long and 2 inches wide. Mix the steak with salt, 1 T. sesame oil, and pepper; put seasonings into the meat. Set aside for 15 minutes.

Soak the green onion slices in ice water for 15 minutes. Drain well. Mix together the soy sauce and the remaining 2 t. sesame oil and toss this with the green onion slices. Set aside.

Mix the chili powder, sugar, and sesame seeds together. Rub this seasoning on the inside curl of the lettuce leaves. Set aside.

Grill the steak to desired temperature according to taste. Take 1 lettuce leaf, put several slices of steak in the center, add about 1 T. of the seasoned green onions, sliver or two of garlic, fold the lettuce over the steak and eat. Serve with rice.
