Preparation
STEP 1

Combine beef and marinade. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

STEP 2

To create pepper sauce, combine gochujang, sesame seeds, honey, 1 teaspoon sesame oil and minced garlic. Set aside.

STEP 3

Heat a wok over medium-high heat. Combine 2 tablespoons each sesame and vegetable oils and put about a tablespoon into the wok. Add spinach and toss until wilted. Remove from wok and set aside.

STEP 4

Add a little more oil to wok. Add carrots and stir-fry until just tender, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from wok and set aside.

STEP 5

Repeat with bean sprouts, just until slightly wilted and set aside.

STEP 6

Add mushrooms and marinade to wok. Fry until tender, 3-5 minutes, set aside.

STEP 7

Carefully wipe wok clean. Add a little more oil and the beef. Stir-fry until just cooked through.

STEP 8

Divide cooked rice between four bowls. Place vegetables and beef in individual piles on rice. Top with a fried egg and kimchee. Serve with pepper sauce on the side.
