It is a great authentic recipe especially for Korean BBQ beef except that we don't frequently use flour in it(never heard of it, actually). Add 1Tb rice wine(don't substitute it with vinegar) or any kind of wine available, 2Tbs corn syrup or honey, 1/2 minced or finely chopped small onion and it would be perfect. Can be used for 1 1/2-2lbs beef depending on the saltness of soy sauce.

I tried this recipe with beef short ribs to make Korean kalbi and it tasted just like my mother's home cooking! The only thing she does differently is to rub the sugar onto the meat first and let it sit for awhile before marinating it with the rest of the ingredients. Anyway, I really enjoyed this recipe and will use it again.

Very good! A tasty marinade that smells wonderful while the food is cooking. I made a couple of changes that enhanced the recipe for my family. #1 I substituted brown sugar for the white sugar; the brown sugar gives a deeper color & flavor. #2 Like other reviewers, I used sesame oil {dark} in place of sesame seeds. #3 I used lots more onions in addition to scallions. Thanks, Curlie for a delicious marinade.
