Korean BBQ Beef Tacos Recipe

Looking for something different for dinner? Check out this great recipe from Taco! Taco! Taco! by Sara Haas featuring Korean BBQ!

Have you had Korean BBQ? It’s out of this world! I wanted to emulate the delicious food I’ve experienced with this recipe. This Korean BBQ Beef is my homage to my adoration of Korean BBQ.

Korean BBQ Beef Tacos
Servings: 4


For the marinade:
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons honey
¼ cup low-sodium soy sauce
2 green onions, light and green parts only, thinly sliced
¼ cup mirin
½ cup pear juice or pineapple juice
1 pound sirloin steak or beef tenderloin, thinly sliced against the grain

For the tacos:
8 (6-inch) flour tortillas, warmed
Toppings: shredded lettuce or cabbage, shredded carrots, kimchi
Special equipment: 10 to 12 wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes


To make the marinade, add the first 8 ingredients to a medium bowl and whisk to combine. Reserve ½ cup. Transfer the remaining marinade to a gallon-size, sealable plastic bag. Add the beef, press out any excess air from the bag, then seal and turn to coat. Marinate for at least hours and up to 12 hours in the refrigerator.

Preheat the grill to medium-high heat or set a grill pan over medium-high heat. If using the grill, clean the grill grates and brush them with oil. If using a grill pan, coat pan lightly with oil. Remove beef from the marinade and pat dry; discard the marinade. Thread beef onto soaked skewers then grill 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until desired degree of doneness.

Remove beef from skewers and serve family style with warmed tortillas, shredded lettuce, shredded carrots, and kimchi. Use extra reserved marinade for serving.

Prep Tip: To make slicing the beef easier, freeze it for at least 1 hour and up to 2 hours.

Recipe Note: If you can’t find mirin, you can substitute it with ½ teaspoon sugar per tablespoon rice vinegar.

Cooking Tip: This recipe can also be prepared without using skewers—the skewers simply make it easier to handle the beef while it’s on the hot grill.
