Items needed

  • 5.31 pounds Flank Steak, whole
  • 6 Cups Korean Bulgogi Marinade
  • 3 Cups Canola Oil
  • 1 1/2 Cups Garlic, fresh, peeled and minced
  • 1 1/2 Cups Ginger Root, fresh, peeled and minced
  • 6 Cups Shitake Mushrooms, fresh, sliced
  • 6 Cups Carrots, shredded
  • 36 Cups Sushi Rice, chilled (Sub Recipe)
  • 24 Eggs, large, hard scrambled

  • 3 Cups Green Onion, sliced
  • 1/2 Cup Furikake Rice Seasoning
  • 3 Cups Radish Microgreens

  • Stove
  • Grill


  1.  In a leak-proof, sealable plastic bag, combine flank steak and Korean bulgogi marinade, ensuring steak is completely covered with marinade. Seal plastic bag with as much air removed as possible, and let steak marinate chilled overnight. Remove marinated steak from refrigerator ~30 minutes before grilling to ensure even cooking.
  2. Make the kimchi sushi fried rice: In a sauté pan on high heat, add canola oil and sauté minced garlic and ginger for 1 minute until fragrant. Add shitake mushrooms and carrots and sauté for 2 minutes until vegetables have softened and are lightly browned. Fold in cold sushi rice, scrambled eggs, tamari sauce and chopped kimchi. Sauté mixture for 2-3 minutes until rice is hot. Remove rice from heat and keep warm.
  3.  On a pre-heated grill on medium high heat, grill marinated flank steak for ~2-3 on each side until internal temperature is 145˚F. Remove grilled steak from heat, cover, and let rest for 5 minutes. After resting, thinly slice steak against the muscle grain.
  4. Plate each Korean Steak Bulgogi Sushi Bowl in the following order:     
    • 2 cups hot kimchi fried sushi rice     
    • 3 oz. grilled Korean bulgogi steak, sliced     
    • 1 Tablespoon wasabi mayo drizzle     
    • 2 Tablespoons sliced green onion     
    • 1 teaspoon furikake rice seasoning     
    • 2 Tablespoons radish microgreens
Notes: For best results on fried rice, use cold, day-old sushi rice. Tamari can be substituted with soy sauce.
