● 600 g beef (sirloin), 70g pear juice
● seasoning sauce: 5 tbsp soy sauce, 3 tbsp sugar, 1 tbsp honey, 2 tbsp minced green onion, 1 tbsp minced garlic, 1 tbsp ginger juice, 1 tbsp sesame salt, 1/5 tsp ground black pepper, 2 tbsp sesame oil
● 1 tsp powdered pine nuts
● 50 g lettuce
● 1 tbsp cooking oil
1. Clean the blood off the beef, remove fat and tendons, cut into 5 cm-wide, 7 cm-long and 0.3-0.5 cm thick pieces perpendicular to the grain of the meat. Score them slightly and marinate in pear juice for 10 min.
2. Blend ingredients for seasoning sauce.
3. Trim and wash lettuce under running water cleanly.
4. Remove tops of the pine nuts and clean the remainder, pound them finely to a powder.
5. Add seasoning to the beef, mix thoroughly until the sauce has permeated evenly into the beef. Let it sit for 30 min.
