Kimbap (Korean Beef Homemade Sushi)


For the Beef

  • 2 lbs. Thinly Sliced Beef
  • 1 Bottle Bulgogi marinade
  • 1-2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 Green onion

For the Sushi Roll

  • 1 package matchstick carrots
  • 3 Mini cucumbers (persian pickles or english)
  • 6 Eggs
  • 1 package Daikon, yellow pickled radish
  • 5 Cups Short grain rice or sushi rice
  • 4-5 Tbsp sushi vinegar
  • 10-12 sheets Japanese seaweed


  1. In a frying pan over medium/ high heat cook marinated bulgogi beef, then set aside and reserve.
  2. Place warm rice in a mixing bowl. Add sushi vinegar and mix well then set aside.
  3. Cut cucumber and daikon into julienne strips.
  4. Heat a nonstick skillet on medium. Add carrots and sesame oil. Briefly stir-fry the carrots till slightly softened, 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  5. Whisk eggs in a small bowl. Cook eggs on nonstick skillet for 1 minute. Once cooked on one side, flip over and cook for an extra minute.
  6. Remove the omelet from the pan and cut into thin long strips. Set aside.
  7. Using a bamboo sushi roller, lay one piece of the dried Japanese seaweed shiny side down.
  8. Spread 1/2 cup of the cooked and seasoned rice out onto 2/3 of the seaweed, leaving the top 1/3 bare.
  9. Once the rice is spread out flat, create a horizontal line of bulgogi, about a third of the way up from the bottom of the seaweed.
  10. Add a little of each filling, carrot, cucumber, pickled radish, and egg.
  11. Roll tightly from the bottom. As you continue to roll, pull the roll down toward the end of the bamboo mat. You can add a tiny dab of water along the top seam to seal the roll close.
  12. Repeat process with the remaining ingredients and seaweed sheets.
