It is a great authentic recipe especially for Korean BBQ beef except that we don't frequently use flour in it(never heard of it, actually). Add 1Tb rice wine(don't substitute it with vinegar) or any kind of wine available, 2Tbs corn syrup or honey, 1/2 minced or finely chopped small onion and it would be perfect. Can be used for 1 1/2-2lbs beef depending on the saltness of soy sauce. Read More

This fell really short of my expectations I guess. I just didn't like it much. I think I will try it again with a longer marinade time (was overnight). Read More

I tried this recipe with beef short ribs to make Korean kalbi and it tasted just like my mother's home cooking! The only thing she does differently is to rub the sugar onto the meat first and let it sit for awhile before marinating it with the rest of the ingredients. Anyway I really enjoyed this recipe and will use it again. Read More

Very good! A tasty marinade that smells wonderful while the food is cooking. I made a couple of changes that enhanced the recipe for my family. #1 I substituted brown sugar for the white sugar; the brown sugar gives a deeper color & flavor. #2 Like other reviewers I used sesame oil dark in place of sesame seeds. #3 I used lots more onions in addition to scallions. Thanks Curlie for a delicious marinade. Read More

My girlfriend and I enjoyed this recipe. I especially enjoy marinating meat for a couple of days before grilling broiling or frying. I substituted the sesame seeds with more sesame oil. Read More

This marinade was awesome with boneless chicken breast and grilled. Even my pickiest eater liked it. I took leftover marinade and sauted fresh green beans in it which made for a great side dish with the chicken. Thanks Laura Read More

My in-laws are Korean and my mother-in-law is famous for her Korean barbeque marinade. After making this recipe I now have my own version that I am proud to share with my in-laws! It is excellent and is useful with just about any cut of beef especially short ribs. Read More

Awesome Marinade! I had to substitute a little onion powder for the green onion. I cut up a sirloin steak and soaked it in the marinade for one hour. Then I threaded it on bamboo skewers for kabobs on the grill and served with fried rice. I have another keeper thats not just the same ol' same ol'! Read More
