Korean-Style Beef and Pasta



  • 1 beef top round steak (about 3/4 pound)
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 package (about 6 ounces) medium rice noodles
  • Korean-Style Dressing
  • 2 cups thinly sliced napa cabbage
  • 1 3/4 cups thinly sliced red and/or yellow bell peppers
  • 1 medium carrot, shredded
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced


Freeze beef until partially firm; cut into very thin slices.

Whisk soy sauce, rice wine, and sugar in large bowl until smooth and well blended. Add beef slices; toss to coat evenly. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.

Drain beef; discard marinade. Prepare grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat. Grill beef 2 to 3 minutes or until desired doneness.

Place rice noodles in medium bowl. Cover with hot water; let stand 15 minutes or until tender. Drain; cut noodles into 3-inch lengths.

Meanwhile, prepare Korean-Style Dressing; set aside.

Combine cabbage, bell peppers, carrot, green onions, and beef in medium bowl. Add Korean-Style Dressing; toss to coat evenly. Serve over noodles.
