  • 8 small soft taco tortillas
  • 1 lb (450g) beef ribeye, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp ginger, grated
  • 1 tbsp gochujang (Korean chili paste)
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 cup kimchi, chopped
  • 1 cucumber, julienned
  • 2 carrots, julienned
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)


  1. Marinate the Beef: In a bowl, mix the soy sauce, sesame oil, brown sugar, minced garlic, grated ginger, gochujang, and rice vinegar. Add the thinly sliced beef and toss to coat. Let it marinate for at least 30 minutes. Don't just stand there – prep your veggies while you wait!
  2. Prepare the Veggies: While the beef is marinating, chop the kimchi, julienne the cucumber and carrots, and chop the green onions. Set them aside. Look sharp, and make sure everything is uniform.
  3. Cook the Beef: Heat a large skillet or grill pan over high heat. Add the marinated beef and cook quickly until it's browned and cooked through, about 3-5 minutes. Don't overcook it, or you'll ruin everything!
  4. Warm the Tortillas: Heat the taco tortillas in a dry skillet over medium heat for about 30 seconds per side, or until warm and pliable. Keep them warm in a clean kitchen towel.
  5. Assemble the Tacos: Lay out the warm tortillas and start with a generous layer of the cooked beef. Top with chopped kimchi, julienned cucumber, julienned carrots, and chopped green onions. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and fresh cilantro if using.
  6. Serve Immediately: Serve these bad boys right away. No one likes a cold taco.

There you have it – Korean tacos that pack a punch. Follow the steps, and you'll have a dish that's bursting with flavor and sure to impress. Now get out there and cook like you mean it!
