You can substitute pear juice with pineapple juice(either from can or fresh pineapple) which will make the meat really tender. Increased the sesame oil to 1T instead of 1t and added green onion to it.


Very good, smells wonderful! I needed something to go with a soba salad (from this site also), and finally decided to try this. It's been in my list of favorites for a while. After reading and comparing reviews, I doubled mine as this: 3/4 Cup lite soy sauce, 2 Cups pear juice, 6 Tbl white sugar, 4 Tbl minced garlic, 2 Tbl sesame oil, 2 tsp. sesame seeds (toasted), 1/4 tsp black pepper, 2 pound thinly sliced rump roast, green onions and carrots. I marinated for 3 hrs. (to easily thinly slice the meat, freeze for about 2 hrs) I made a reduction from the leftover marinade, and served it with some jasmine rice. Next time, I'll tenderize the meat, to make it more soft.

This made good beef, however, I recommend sticking to the 1 hr. marinade time. I left mine overnight and the soy was so strong it tasted like my homemade jerky. It still gets 4 stars because we love that salty home made jerky taste. I'll have to try again with less marinade time.
