3 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp mirin or rice vinegar
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp maesilaek (Korean plum extract) (optional)
1 tbsp sesame oil, plus some for garnish
1 lb thinly sliced beef

In a bowl, combine soy sauce, mirin, sugar, plum extract, sesame oil, and sesame seeds. Mix well. Add the beef, half the onion, garlic, and green onions. Mix well and let marinate for 30 minutes or overnight in the refrigerator.
