Now were going to yukhoe recipe. Yukhoe [jukʰwe] is a variety of hoe (raw dishes in Korean cuisine), which are usually made from raw ground beef seasoned with various spices or sauces. It is basically a Korean steak tartare. Usually the most tender part of beef will be used; tenderloin or filet mignon. The lean beef is trimmed from it’s fat , sinew or silver skin, julienned, then mixed with seasoning soy sauce, sugar. The yukhoe seasoning or marinade usually contains; salt, sesame oil, minced spring onion, minced garlic, sesame seeds, honey, black pepper, and gochujang. The salted and spiced yukhoe marinate not only infused flavour, but also cured and preserved the raw beef by creates an salt ion solute-rich environment where the salted marinade osmotic pressure draws water out of microorganisms (bacterias & parasites) and slowing down their growth.

Yukhow Raw Spicy Seasoned Beef with Asian Pear Salad

Yukhoe or Korean steak tartare uses raw beef, freshness is the most important criteria. Freshly slaughtered  preferred or it is recommended to use no more than one day after defrosting from the vaccum packed, and traditionally should not be aged more than one day after slaughtering. Regular Korean yukhoe customers are often patrons of trusted restaurants or butcher’s shops which have well-known, high-quality beef distributors, so no way making yukhoe with cheap clearance stock supermarket meat for sure. So i asked my butcher to save my beef tenderloin in a vaccum packed right after slaughtered and kept the meat in the freezer before i come to picked it up in the afternoon right after i come back from my clinic.

Nice Beef Tenderloin with Nice Marbled FatPattern (Silver Skin On)

Raw beef can be contaminated with pathogenic bacteria and  other parasites, the Enterohemorrhagic E. coli and Taenia Saginata flatworm being of particular concern. In April and May 2011, five people died and more than 35 people were hospitalised after eating yukke (Japanese spelling) made from beef not designated for raw consumption in various branches of a yakiniku restaurant chain in Toyama and Kanagawa prefectures, Japan, with enterohemorrhagic E. coli bacteria found in many of the cases, so don’t make your own yukhoe unless you strickly known the savety ways to prepare and made it. DO NOT TRIMMING/REMOVED ANY SILVER SKIN or sinew before sousvided the beef tenderloin, i’ll explained it later.

Vaccum Packed Beef Tenderloin for Sous Vide Using Ziplock Plastic Bag & Water

To reduce the risk of eating raw beef, i decided to sousvide or slowly pasteurized the beef in a low temperature to kill the pathogens. Sous-vide French for “under vacuum” is a method of cooking food sealed in airtight plastic bags in a water bath or in a temperature-controlled steam environment for longer than normal cooking times for p to 96 hours, in some cases; at an accurately regulated temperature much lower than normally used for cooking, typically around 50°C (131 °F) to 60 °C (140 °F) for meats and higher for vegetables. Since this is sort of-sousvide, the beef tenderloin is vaccum packed with ziplock manually without any vaccum machine bu simply submerged the ziplock package under water partially to remove the air pocket and then zipped the package silicone seal once the air removed.

Sous Vide (sort of-) using RIce Cooker without Lid, The Temperature fluctualed 50-52 C

I’m using my old rice cooker (warmer mode) for this sort of-sous vide cooking. As you can see from the photograph, my waterbath temperature was 51.8°C and it actually fluctuated from 50-52°C if i did’t put the lid, just perfect temperature for sousvide beef tenderloin for very rare or simply pasteurized it. The heat source is from the bottom of my rice cooker, so the temperature in the bottom and the surface of the the water bath is different with range about 0.5°C, so it’s necessary to flip it every 20-30 minutes to made it evenly pasteurized. Do not forget to submerged the vaccum packed beef tenderloin completely on the waterbath during the sous vide cooking, put some weight may help.

The Pasteurized-Sous Vide Beef Tenderloin in Ice Water For Suddently Stop The Heat

The sousvide beef tenderloin with ziplock package then transfered into ice water to suddently cooled and stop the pasteurization process. At this stage, the beef meat is needed to be kept in low temperature to prevent the pathogen microorganism from the enviroments contaminated the beef once it cooled and opened from the package. So, keep it cold before  and during the serving.

Sous Vide Beef Tenderloin with Pale Pinkish Color, Wait Until Trimmed!!!

This is the result of 2.5 hours sousvided beef tenderloin, seems pretty pale pinkis and not so appetizing right now, but wait until you slice the beef and see what happen after you pasteurized/sousvide it in 50C. There’s only a little bit of liquid drained out from the sousvide beef, which means the meat moisture is preserved. The sinew or silverskin that covering the beef tenderloin then peeled and all the discolored part of the sousvide beef then removed, you may use this part for other stif fry recipe, but it’s definitely not nice for making yukhoe or Korean style raw beef steak tartare, this is why i told you before to not trimming the beef before sousvide cooking.

Look the georgeous Core Meat Color, Remove the Discolored Outler Layer with Cold Knives on a Chilled Chopping Board

Eversince my sousvide is definitely not to cook but to pasteurized it, so the result is raw beef but definitely savety to eaten raw, so i decide to use my old rice cookerfor making sous vide beef. My rice cooker can maintain the temperature about 50-52°C without putting it’s cover, just perfect to pasteurized the beef.FDA recomend to sous vide Raw Beef (Tenderloin) for makeing beef tartare  in 50°C for at least 60 minutes and not more than 36 hours, eversince i want to maintain the “rawness” of the beef so i decide to sous vide it for 2 and half hours to let the inner core of the beef reach the target internal temperature for at least 1 hour. This sousvide beef tenderloin method also a confirmation of Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW) new regulations  to require cooking the beef surface 1 cm deep to further reduce contamination after the enterohemorrhagic E. Coli  death incidence.

Keep the Meat Cold, using Smaller Ice Water in The Bottom of The Meat Container Bowl

Remember always keep the sousvided “raw” beef tenderloin cold, righ after the silverskin and all the discolored part removed, then clean and chilled wooden chopping board and knive uses for thinly julienned the beef tenderloin. I also put some ice water on a small glass bowl in the bottom of  large bowl (used as a container the beef) to maintain the bowl temperature cold.

  1. Your food always looks and sounds so good, and very different from what we have here. This beef dish reminds me of the Steak Tartare we had in Paris years ago, very good, and yours is very colorful also.

  2. Nice post Dedy. Congrats for your involvement in the Korean food challenge. Your recipe is amazing, so much texture. Great-sounding app – looks really well-designed and easy to use. Glad Sydney is featured, hopefully Melbourne will be next on their list 🙂 We have a beautiful Korean restaurant near our house that fuses US-style cooking and Korean. An amazing combination. It’s here: http://themorethebetter.com.au/about-us/

  3. Korean? My missus and my girl would love this – they’re into everything Korean. Had raw beef in slices at a Japanese place in NZ, served well-seasoned/marinated in some very nice sauce – stunning!

  4. Congratulations on getting featured in the food challenge! So exciting! I like beef and steak…but I don’t like steak tartare. I don’t know…I think it’s just the taste 🙂

  5. I love the stylish presentation but as said before, we don’t eat beef, so no comments on the taste. Thanks for the infor on the Korean restaurants. I now have more choices on where to dine and enjoy Korean food.

  6. Korean food is so popular in the USA now – you see lots of Korean dishes in restaurants. I do not know if it is all very authentic, but it IS delicious! =) Your dish looks beautifully presented, as always. YUM!

  7. Hi Dedy:)
    I think it’s wonderful that Korean food is getting the world wide attention it deserves. When I lived in New York it was readily available. Unfortuntately where I live now it is not. I just have to attempt to make it at home when I crave it, lol…

    I love the way you pasteurized the meat. What a novel idea. Better safe. Your dish looks as delicious as ever. I would feel safe just having a little taste.

    Thank you so much for sharing, Dedy…

  8. Wow Dedy, you always come with amazing recipes…I yet have to try anything close to this…looks and sounds delicious!
    Hope you are enjoying your week 🙂

  9. What a gorgeous and mouth watering dish. Didn’t know I can do my own pasteurizing at home! Thank you so much for sharing the method and I can’t wait to try this.

  10. Hi Dedy,your posts and recipes are such a huge inspiration for us….we learn loads of new things every time we visit it….this salad looks absolutely beautiful ,elegant and delicious….a winner for sure,thanks 🙂

  11. I enjoy appetizer like the one you’ve prepared & this looks like a teaser, Dedy! I usually use a flan ring for assembling my starters & yours look handy too 😀

  12. Dedy – the app looks wonderful, as does the yukhoe! I want to try the yukhoe, soon. We can easily get freshly slaughtered beef here, too. This is beautiful and I bet it tastes amazing, too!

  13. Gorgeous! Artistically presented, definitely the first class. I love to mimic this plating sometime in future. Sounds so delicious too. I enjoyed the restaurant guide…it looks like very fancy Korean restaurant.

  14. Your yukhoe looks amazing! Love your plating 🙂 I had it once at a Korean restaurant before, but was too scared to eat it all because after all it’s raw beef haha. Sous vide sounds like a perfect solution for making it at home though!
