I have been using my gas grill a lot these days because it has been so beastly hot. I have wanted to try this grilled Korean steak recipe from Epicurious.com for awhile now. I halved the original recipe and used bone-in ribeyes because that is what I had.
This was really juicy and bursting with flavor. It was great cold the next day, too. If you would like a vegetarian option, I think this would be fabulous with portobello mushrooms in place of the steak. The cilantro sauce makes the dish, so don't skip it!
Grilled, Korean-Style Steaks with Spicy Cilantro Sauce
Combine the marinade ingredients and pour over the steaks.
Turn to coat each side and let sit at room temperature for about 1 hour. Meanwhile, make the sauce:
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
3 Tbsp. vegetable oil
2 Tbsp. lite soy sauce
1/4 to 1/2 tsp. sesame oil
1 large clove garlic, minced
2 tsp. fresh lime juice
hot pepper sauce to taste (ex: Tabasco or Sriracha)
salt to taste
Combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly.
Preheat grill to medium high heat. Grill steaks on a lightly oiled rack 3 to 4 minutes on each side for medium-rare. Let steaks stand for 5 minutes, then top with some sauce and cut crosswise into 3/4-inch-thick slices. Serve remaining sauce on the side.
