  • 2 pounds beef sirloin or ribeye, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 inch fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar

For the Gochujang Glaze:

  • 3 tablespoons gochujang (Korean red chili paste)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic


  1. In a large bowl, combine soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, minced garlic, grated ginger, green onions, and rice vinegar to create the marinade.
  2. Add the beef cubes to the marinade, ensuring each piece is well coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.
  3. For the gochujang glaze, whisk together gochujang, honey, soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, and minced garlic in a small bowl. Set aside.
  4. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes to prevent burning.
  5. Preheat your grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.
  6. Thread the marinated beef onto the skewers.
  7. Grill the skewers for 2-3 minutes per side, or until the beef is cooked to your liking.
  8. In the last minute of grilling, brush the skewers with the gochujang glaze, turning to coat evenly.
  9. Remove from the grill and let the skewers rest for a few minutes before serving.
