      First, wrap the steak in plastic wrap. Then put it in the freezer for half an hour. After thirty minutes, take it out and unwrap it. Then start cutting into half-inch-thick slices from across the surface.

      Now take a medium bowl or tray and add pear, soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, garlic, freshly sliced ginger, and gochujang. Now take a gallon ziplock bag and combine the soy sauce mixture and the sliced steak. Then leave it for two hours. You can also marmite it overnight for better taste. Make sure to rotate the bag after a few minutes so that all the steak marinates well.

      Now take one tablespoon of vegetable oil in an iron grill pan. If you don’t have an iron girl pen, you can also use the simple pane. After adding the vegetable oil, heat it up on a medium flame. Add the steak to the grill pan in a single layer. Don’t add many layers of the steak in the pan; it will stick with each other. Add one layer at a time and slowly cook it. Keep filling the steak so it can adequately cook from both sides.

      Once thoroughly cooked, remove them from the pan and add another tablespoon of the vegetable oil. Then heat it for a minute and add the remaining steak. Repeat this step until you cook all of your steaks. Make sure to serve the steak hot. You can garnish the steak with green onions or sesame seeds.
