Equipment

  • Slow Cooker

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups kimchi, divided
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 1/4 cup sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons chili paste (optional)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 pounds sirloin steak
  • 1 cup instant brown rice
  • 6 romaine lettuce leaves or whole-wheat tortillas
  • 1 cucumber, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro (optional)

Instructions

  • In your slow cooker, stir together ½ cup of kimchi, garlic, ginger, oil, chili paste (if using), and soy sauce. Add sirloin and turn to coat.
  • Cover slow cooker and cook on Low heat for 8 hours, or High heat for 3 hours.
  • Using a heavy spoon, stir beef, coaxing it into shreds.
  • Stir brown rice into your slow cooker. Re-cover slow cooker and cook on High heat for 10 minutes more, or until rice is soft.
  • Refrigerate individual portions of rice and beef, the remaining 1 cup of kimchi, the cucumber slices, sesame seeds (if using), and cilantro (if using), all in separate airtight containers for up to 4 days, or freeze for up to 4 months. Keep lettuce or tortillas separate until ready to serve.
  • To serve, divide rice and beef among lettuce or tortillas and top with remaining kimchi, cucumber slices, sesame seeds (if using), and cilantro (if using). Roll up the wrap like a burrito.
