Restaurant Favorites


  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless ribeye
  • 1/2 cup San-J Sweet Tamari Splash
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp gochujang (look for a gluten-free brand)
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 seedless cucumber
  • 1/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil divided
  • 1/2 cup kimchi
  • 4 cups cooked rice
  • 4 tbsp shredded carrots
  • 4 tbsp microgreens or cilantro
  • lettuce leaves optional


  • Wrap the ribeye in plastic wrap and place in the freezer for 10-15 minutes to make for easier slicing.
  • Combine the San-J Sweet Tamari Splash, sesame oil, gochujang, garlic, and ginger, whisking well. Reserve about one third of the mixture for serving. Pour the rest into a bowl or large food storage bag.
  • Using a sharp knife, slice the ribeye very thinly and add to the marinade. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least two hours or overnight.
  • Using a vegetable peeler, peel the cucumber into long ribbons. Place in a small bowl, add the rice vinegar, and let sit while making the beef.
  • Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of oil and let it heat up. Working in batches, add steak in a single layer, being careful not to over-crowd the pan. Cook for about 1 minute per side. Set aside.
  • Add remaining tablespoon of oil to the pan, add the kimchi, and cook for a couple minutes just to get a little char on it.
  • To assemble the bowls, start with rice, then add the beef, kimchi, cucumber ribbons (drained), carrots, and microgreens. Serve with reserved sauce and lettuce leaves on the side if desired. Enjoy!
