  • tbs soy sauce
  • tbs sugar
  • 1/4 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/8 tsp Tobanjan
  • 1 tbs miso paste
  • 1 tsp white roasted sesame seeds


  • Cook the rice accordingly (to your rice cooker instructions) and allow it to cool down.
  • Slice the beef very thinly.
  • Combine the soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, tobanjan, miso paste, and sesame seeds together in a bowl and marinate the thinly sliced beef for about 20 minutes.
  • Measure each rice bun to 80 g and using cling wrap, make the rice ball then flatten them by pressing with your palm to 1cm thick. Set aside. Make 4 rice buns.
  • Heat 1 tbs of sesame seed oil in a frying pan over medium heat and cook the marinated beef till the beef is brown.
