Korean Beef Bites: Healthy Asian Favorites from Jaden Hair – Steamy Kitchen { #SundaySupper }

One of my first foodie crushes was Jaden of Steamy Kitchen.  I remember finding her site, then stalking her on Twitter and now I’m sitting here eating her Korean Beef Bites.  Well, I made them, but it’s her recipe.  When I found out she wanted our #SundaySupper group to not only try out a few of her recipes, but also giveaway 20 (!) of her cookbooks, I jumped at the chance!

In case I don’t have your attention yet…

Korean Beef Bites

Korean Beef Bites

The simplicity of these beautiful little bites is what makes them so perfect.  Even if you choose to make your own kimchi over buying store bought like I did, these are ridiculously easy to put together.  The most time consuming part of the whole process is cooking the steak, and even that is honestly a very quick process.

The slightly sweet, slightly spicy flavor of the beef pairs perfectly with the tangy bite of the kimchi.  The rice crackers were a surprisingly delicious palate for the pair.  They don’t taste quite like any cracker I’ve ever had before and I found myself munching on them right out of the package.  And, they are gluten-free!  In fact, you can make this whole recipe gluten-free if need be with just a few small adjustments.

Korean Beef Bites
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 24 individual crackers
  • ½ pound flank or sirloin steak
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce or gluten-free tamari
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • ½ teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 24 rice crackers
  • ½ cup prepared kimchi
  • 1 green onion, very thinly sliced on the diagonal
  1. Slice the steak as thin as you can into at least 24 pieces. If you are using flank steak, be sure to slice across the grain.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, garlic, and ginger.
  3. Add the steak and mix to coat.
  4. Marinate for at least 10 minutes at room temperature or up to 24 hours in the refrigerator.
  5. Heat a grill pan over high heat.
  6. You'll cook the steak in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan.
  7. When the pan is hot, add the steak, and grill 1 to 2 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of your slices.
  8. To serve, on each rice cracker layer a slice of steak, the kimchi, and garnish with green onion.
