This is the recipe I made a couple of weeks ago. It’s a family favorite, and according to the note on the recipe card my grandma made for me, it came from a woman named Joan who she knew in 1962, which was during her years working to put her husband through his Ph.D. program there.
2/3 cup soy sauce
2 bunches green onions (cut into 2″ strips)
3 T sesame seed (heated, then pounded with salt)
1 tsp MSG (I left this out)
1/4 cup sugar (I substituted this for 1/4 cup Mr. Yoshida’s original sauce–usually sold at Costco)
1 clove garlic, mashed (I did 4)
1 1/2 tsp ginger
2 T oil (I used sesame oil)
3-4 lbs boneless chuck, sliced thinly (1/2″)
Pound the meat with a meat mallet until very thin. Mix the above ingredients together, and marinate the meat in it for about 3 hours.
Barbecue on the grill for about 5-7 minutes.
