As with all my recipes, this isn’t a strictly traditional recipe for Korean BBQ. In my family, we usually have this for Sunday lunch – it’s perfect for eating family style, and can get quite messy.
  • Some steak, or good-quality beef
  • Sesame oil
  • Coarse salt (I use kosher salt)
  • Lettuce
  • Rice
  • Tongs
  • Frying pan and camp stove, or hot plate
  • Kimchi (one packet)
  • A lot of napkins
  1. You really can’t get more simple than this – prepare all the trimmings.
  2. Cook the rice, wash the lettuce, decant the kimchi into bowls.
  3. Put sesame oil in a small dish with a small heap of the coarse salt (around 5 tablespoons of oil).
  4. Once you are ready to eat, turn on the hob to a high heat and start frying the beef.
  5. There’s no need to oil the pan, and I recommend cutting the beef into small, bite-sized strips.
  6. Take a lettuce leaf, and fill with a small spoonful of rice and some kimchi.
  7. Once the beef has cooked, pop that in as well, and wrap it up into a deliciously crunchy bundle.
  8. Dip the parcel into the salty sesame oil, and enjoy the different textures and flavours.
