Korean Kalbi Beef Tacos with Cilantro Lime Salsa

The tacos were really tasty! I loved the sear on the beef along with the flavors of the kalbi marinade.  I really enjoyed the sweet and savory kalbi beef with the tangy sesame soy dressing. I topped the tacos with chopped tomatoes, a cilantro lime salsa and sesame soy sauce dressing.

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 lbs. skirt steak
  • 2 inch piece ginger, minced
  • 1/2 lemon, juice
  • 1 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 asian pear, grated
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup sesame oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion, grated
  • 1 batch cilantro lime salsa
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • sesame soy dressing (recipe below)
  • 6 corn taco shells

  1. Mix together the ginger, lemon juice, soy sauce, garlic, sesame oil, sugar, pear, and onion in a bowl.
  2. In a plastic bag or pan pour the marinade over the beef. Let sit in the refrigerator for an hour or two.
  3. Mean while, prepare the cilantro lime salsa and add the chopped green onion.
  4. On a saute pan, heat the oil until the pan is hot. Add the beef and saute for 2-3 minutes on each side or until medium rare.
  5. Let the meat rest for 5 minutes, then slice against the grain.
  6. Place the beef on the tacos and pour the soy sesame dressing over the beef and top with tomatoes and salsa.

Sesame Soy Dressing:


  • 2 inch piece ginger, minced
  • 2 lemons, juice
  • 4 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp gochujang
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1 green onion, chopped


Mix all together.
