Korean BBQ Beef (Whole30, Paleo)

Prep Time 2 hours 15 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 2 hours 25 minutes
Servings 4


  • 2 lbs ribeye or any cut of steak, sirloin works great too
  • 1 Asian pear or gala apple, grated
  • 1 inch ginger peeled and grated
  • 4 garlic cloves peeled and minced
  • ½ large yellow onion thinly sliced
  • ½ cup coconut aminos
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • ½ tbsp kosher salt
  • Avocado oil
  • Sliced green onions


  1. Slice steak against the grain into thin slices. (Pro-tip: freeze your steak for 40-45 minutes to help with slicing).
  2. In a large bowl or ziplock bag, mix the steak with the grate Asian pear, ginger, garlic cloves, yellow onion, coconut aminos, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and kosher salt.
  3. Marinate for at least 2 hours to overnight.
  4. Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat with about a teaspoon of cooking fat.
  5. Once the skillet is hot, shake off excess liquid from the steak and place it in the skillet in a single layer. You may have to cook in batches.
  6. Cook for 6-10 minutes depending on thickness of steak.
  7. Garnish with green onions and serve with cauliflower rice or anything else!
