Soegogi Sanjok – Skewered beef and green onions


skewered beef

Marinated sirloin strips skewered with green onions and BBQ’ed to perfection.  Deliciousness on a stick!

For Father’s day my yobo got a new BBQ; it was a well needed gift since the old one was now more like a meat warmer on wheels than an actual BBQ.  It served us well for a long time, but we were ready for a new one!  In celebration, I decided to prep some skewers my yobo would really enjoy.  He really likes green onions so this was the perfect combination. Ironically, I got to have the first dance with his new BBQ… since he was cleaning the chicken coop.

Just a note: I used green onions from the garden, which are delicious but too thin for on the BBQ.  As you can see in the picture, they got seared! A thicker stalk would have worked better.

beef onion skewers

The things you need:

  • 3/4 lb sirloin steak strips
  • 1 bunch green onions
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • skewers

The how to:

  • cut the sirloin steaks into strips (I buy them already cut, but if they aren’t then cut them into 2 inch strips)
  • cut the onions into strips as well.  The meat will shrink when it cooks so to have them the same length, cut the onions a little longer. I didn’t follow this advise and I ended up with burnt onion wings with my beef. 🙂
  • mix the remainder of the ingredients in a bowl and marinate the beef in the mixture
  • skewer the onions and the beef alternately.
  • BBQ and enjoy!


 The shiny new machine!
