Sticky Korean Style Stir Fry with Crispy Beef

Sticky Korean Style Stir Fry with Crispy Beef

By Mela Baldock
15, December 2020

You only need a small amount of beef to elevate this otherwise complete dish. The beef gets fried dark and crispy and is sprinkled on the top at the end like a condiment to add texture. You’ll only need 150g or less for two bowlfuls. The Gochujang chilli is increasingly easy to find, either as flakes or a paste; it is mild and smoky so be cautious if you end up using normal chilli flakes, you might need to dial down the quantity.



100g Grass Fed Beef Mince 

3 tbsp sesame oil (untoasted), or use plain vegetable oil

200g mixed mushrooms, roughly torn or sliced

1 small head of pak choi, sliced lengthways

150g tenderstem broccoli, sliced into 3cm pieces

1 spring onion, very finely sliced

200g rice noodles

½ tbsp sesame seeds

1 jar of Barrel & Bone Kimchi


for the sticky sauce:

2 cm piece of ginger, finely grated

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

2 tbsp mirin

4 tbsp soy sauce

1 ½ tbsp brown sugar

1½ tbsp Korean Gochujang chilli flakes (see intro)



Make the sticky sauce by mixing the ginger, garlic, mirin, soy sauce, honey and chilli powder together in a small bowl.

Put a pan of salted water on to boil for your noodles. 

Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a wok. Fry the beef for 10 mins on a medium heat, turning often, until very darkly coloured (see intro note). Then add half of the sticky sauce and fry for a final 2 minutes until sticky and crisp. Remove and keep somewhere warm.

Quickly clean the wok and pop it back on a high heat with 2 tablespoons of oil in it. Throw in the mushrooms and fry vigorously for 2-3 minutes until starting to colour and wilt. Add the pak choi and broccoli and cook for 2 more minutes before throwing in half the spring onions and the rest of the sauce. Cook for 1 minute or so until the sauce is reduced and sticky.

While the stir fry is cooking, drop your noodles into the boiling water to cook. Depending on the type, they will take somewhere between 3-5 minutes to cook. Try and time it so everything is ready at the same time  

Drain the noodles and divide them between 2 bowls. Top with the stir fry and crumble over the warm beef. Garnish with a pinch of sesame seeds and the remaining spring onions slices. Serve with the kimchi on the side.
