  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 pound skirt steak
  • 1 red onion halved and slivered
  • 1 red bell pepper cut into semi-thin slivers
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 8 ounces frozen french fries
  • About 1 cup Kimchi sliced or chopped
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • Honey optional for drizzling


  • In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, cumin, coriander, garlic and a generous pinch each of salt and pepper. Cut the steak into 4-inch pieces; slice the steaks across the grain 1/2 inch thick and add to the bowl along with the onion and red bell peppers. Let marinate for at least 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat 1/2 inch of oil until shimmering. Add the french fries and fry over high heat until golden and crisp, for about 3-5 minutes; drain on paper towels.
  • Heat a large griddle until very hot. Add the steak, onion and bell peppers and stir-fry over high heat until everything is cooked through and lightly charred, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add the french fries and cilantro and flip with a spatula to combine. Serve right away with the freshly sliced kimchi on top and garnish with more cilantro and drizzle lightly with some honey (if desired).
