2 pounds sirloin steak
--- MARINADE ---
5 tablespoons soy sauce
3 cloves garlic -- peeled, finely chopped
1 piece fresh ginger -- (1 inch) finely chopped
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 medium spring onions -- sliced
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
1 medium lettuce
1 tablespoons kochujang -- to taste (optional)

Preparation / Directions:

If necessary, score the meat and pound lightly with a meat hammer to tenderize. Slice the meat into thin strips across the grain on the diagonal bias. Combine the marinade ingredients and add to the meat. Mix well with the hands, then set aside for at least 1 hour. Prepare a charcoal fire if using. Remove the meat from the marinade and grill over the hot coals for 5-7 minutes, turning with tongs frequently. Alternatively, if you have a domed shield, place this over the fire, allow to heat up, then place the meat strips on the hot metal, turning as required. The meat may also be cooked under a hot grill, or fried in a very hot frying pan. Serve with steamed white rice together with a pile of cleaned lettuce leaves and the kochujang, if desired. Either eat as it is, or else take a lettuce leaf, add a bit of rice, some strips of meat and a little dab of kochujang. Roll up to make packets to eat with the fingers.
