Prep

  1. Cook rice - This makes enough for Thursday. Fill a saucepan with water and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil and then add rice. Bring to a simmer, cover, turn heat down to low and cook until rice has absorbed all the liquid, 15 to 18 minutes. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Make marinade - Chop garlic and grate ginger. Combine with brown sugar, vinegar (portion for steak), soy sauce, and Gochujang (portion for steak). (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  3. Steak - Slice steak against the grain (i.e., perpendicular to the fibers to prevent toughness). Add marinade and marinate for at least 20 minutes and up to a day. (Can be done 1 day ahead)
  4. Make spicy yogurt - Combine yogurt with Gochujang (portion for burritos). (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  5. Kimchi - Chop kimchi. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  6. Marinate cucumbers - Chop cucumbers. Toss with toasted sesame oil, vinegar (portion for cucumbers), and sesame seeds. Marinate for at least 20 minutes and up to a day. (Can be done 1 day ahead)
  7. Make kimchi slaw - Combine kimchi, coleslaw mix, first portion of cooking oil, lime juice, and cilantro leaves. (Can be done 1 day ahead)

  4. Give cucumbers a stir and season with some salt.
  5. Assemble burritos by spreading one side of each tortilla with spicy yogurt. Fill tortillas with rice, kimchi slaw, and steak.
  6. Serve burritos with cucumbers on the side. Enjoy!

Really good. Cucumbers weren't my favorite though. I didn't eat it in wraps, I just ate it with rice.

Really liked this. Thought cucumbers were only ok, but I'm not much of a cucumber fan.

Delicious! Use sriracha instead of the Gochujang. Definately make double the yogurt next time!

I added a little extra brown sugar to the marinade, and cooked it down to a syrupy sauce once the steak was done. This meal was delicious & another favorite!

Tasty, tender steak and great slaw! I used double the kimchi, double the cilantro and threw in some scallions I had on hand. This could work as a rice bowl, too. Will definitely become part of my regular rotation.
