  • 1/4 tsp sesame oil

  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Heat 1 tbs of sesame seed oil in a frying pan over medium heat and cook the marinated beef till the beef is brown.
