Korean BBQ Tacos

Korean BBQ Tacos, yes please!

I don’t know about you, but tacos are a favorite in our household. I mean you can pretty much stuff anything into a taco ❀️!!! Two, most cultures have their own take on this universal food 🌎🌍🌏, so for tonight’s Taco Tuesday, I bring you, Korean BBQ Tacos with a crunchy Kimchi Slaw, Pickled Cucumbers, and Sriracha Lime Cream, and boy are they dynamite!

Some Thoughts

Cut of Beef – You can purchase shaved beef or ribeye steaks and cut the steak thinly yourself πŸ‘

Toppings for your Tacos

  • Kimchi Slaw – I threw this together quickly with kimchi, cabbage, carrot, cilantro, and lime juice. If you’re looking for exact measurements, check out my Apple Kimchi Slaw in my Korean Short Rib Tacos post.
  • Pickled Cucumber – Again, I threw this together with a quick pickle. Equal parts white vinegar and water, salt and pepper!
  • Sriracha Lime Cream – I put this condiment on just about anything, enjoy!!!

  • 1 lb shaved beef steak

Marinade for the Beef

  • ΒΌ cup soy sauce
  • 2 large cloves of garlic, smashed and chopped
  • 2 tsp ginger, grated
  • 1 lime, zest and juice from lime
  • 2 TBSP mirin
  • 1 TBSP toasted sesame oil
  • 1 TBSP brown sugar
  • 1 TBSP gochujang, Korean hot pepper paste

Kimchi Slaw

  • Kimchi, chopped thinly
  • Green cabbage, sliced thinly
  • Carrot, shredded
  • Cilantro
  • lime juice
  • salt and pepper, for seasoning

Finishing the Tacos

  • Pickled cucumbers
  • Sriracha Lime Cream see recipe below


  • Add all the marinade ingredients to a gallon bag or storage container and mix until well combined.
  • Add the beef steak to the marinade and marinade for at least 1 to 2 hours or overnight.
  • Once ready to cook, remove the beef from the refrigerator and allow the beef to get to room temperature because this will help to cook the beef evenly.
  • Add a touch of natural oil to an electric skillet or grill pan and allow it to warm on medium. Add the marinated beef to the skillet once the oil and skillet/pan is warm.
  • Cook until the beef is cooked to your liking.
  • Remove from the heat.

Kimchi Slaw

  • Add vibes of kimchi, cabbage, carrot, cilantro, and lime juice to a medium sized bowl and mix until well combined. Taste and season with salt & pepper, as needed.
