  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon gochujang (Korean red pepper paste)
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar

  1. Start by marinating the beef. In a bowl, mix together soy sauce, brown sugar, gochujang, rice vinegar, and sesame oil. Add the sliced beef to the marinade and let it sit for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add minced garlic and sauté for about 30 seconds until fragrant.
  3. Add the marinated beef and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes until it’s cooked to your desired level of doneness. Remove the beef from the skillet and set it aside.
  4. In the same skillet, add more oil if needed, then add sliced bell peppers and onions. Stir-fry for 3-4 minutes until they start to soften and caramelize.
  5. Return the cooked beef to the skillet and toss everything together. Cook for an additional 2 minutes to heat through.
  6. Garnish with sesame seeds and chopped green onions.
  7. Serve your Sweet and Spicy Korean BBQ Beef Stir Fry over steamed rice and enjoy!
