4. put the beef into a large bowl. Pour over the mirin or rice wine. Add the ginger,soy sauce,garlic,sesame seeds and oil for the marinade,with black pepper to taste. Mix well to coat all the pieces of beef. Cover,refrigerate and leave to marinate for about 20 minutes, to allow the beef to absorb and develop all the flavours.

5. Season the prawns with salt and pepper and set aside. combine all the dipping sauce ingredients in a small serving bowl and set aside.

6.Coat a frying pan with vegetable oil and heat over a medium heat. Add the beef,mushroom and onion,and stir-fry until the meat has browned. Next, add the cucumber,cabbage kimchi and spring onions. Toss the ingredients in the pan and remove from the heat.

7. heat a little oil in a frying pan and add a spoonful of the bean paste, spreading it into a small pancake. Spoon a little of the beef mixture on to to the middle of the pancake, with some shredded chili and spoonful of chopped prawns. Use a spatula to press the ingredients flat on to the pancake, and fry until golden underneath. Turn and cook until golden on the second side.
