Loaded Kimchi Fries With Steak

Son Son Asian Grill


  • Ore Ida Crinkle Cut French Fries, deep fried and salted
  • Shredded Cheese–cheddar/mozzarella blend
  • Yum Yum Sauce (or other fry sauce)
  • Caramelized Kimchi
  • Flank Steak, sliced into thin pieces and marinated
  • Green Onions
  • Sriracha

Steak Marinade


  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • 2 cups water
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp granulated garlic powder
  • ½ Tb sesame oil
  • ½ tsp pepper


Prepare the steak ahead by slicing into thin strips and then smaller chunks. Pour the marinade over the top and mix in well. Let the meat marinade for several hours or overnight. Cook steak on a hot flat top grill or in a pan.


Caramelized Kimchi


  • ½ onion, diced
  • ½ to 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 2 cups prepared kimchi, cut into small chunks


In a fry pan, melt the stick of butter and add the diced onion. Saute for one minute or until the onions start to cook. Add the kimchi. Allow to cook until the liquid from the kimchi reduces and the cabbage and onion are cooked–about 10 minutes
