This is a very healthy dish and thought it apt to coincide with the historic meeting between the US and North Korea. It’s very simple and really showcases the meat. We prefer to use Sirloin for this dish due to the flavour and marbling.
1 x piece of Eat Great Meat Sirloin for two people
1 tsp honey
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
2 x spring onions, sliced
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 x garlic clove, minced
1 x pear
Bowl of water with 1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp salt
2 x eggs
1 x tsp Korean gochugaru (or half tsp chilli flakes)
- 1 hour before cooking, put the meat in the freezer. It helps make it easy to handle and keeps chilled when serving as this is a cold dish Peel the pear and slice into match sticks. Place in the bowl of water and lemon.
- In a bowl, mix the honey, salt, sesame oil, sesame seeds, gochugaru, garlic, soy sauce and one of the chopped spring onions.
- Take out the steak. Remove any fat and sinew. Slice into thin slices then matchstick the slices.
- Mix the meat with the marinade well.
- Using a chefs ring (if you want) add the meat and press, add the pear to some kitchen paper to dry then top on the ring.
- Gently crack open an egg. Discard the white and keep the yolk. I like to gently rinse the yolk while in my hand under a gentle tap to remove any remaining white.
- Top with the egg, remove the ring and garnish with the remaining spring onion
- Serve whilst chilled
