  Carrots 2 Medium, cut into finger length pieces about 1.5 cm thick
  Zucchini 2 Medium, cut into finger length pieces about 1.5 cm thick
  Green onion 2 Medium, cut into finger length pieces about 1.5 cm thick
  Asparagus 2 Medium, cut into finger length pieces about 1.5 cm thick
  Sirloin steak 16 Ounce, cut into finger length pieces about 1.5 cm thick
  Oil 2 Tablespoon (For frying)
For the marinade
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), minced
  Sesame oil 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Honey 1 Tablespoon
  Soy sauce 1 Tablespoon
  Black pepper 1 Dash, ground
  Salt 1 Pinch
  Korean red pepper flakes 1⁄2 Teaspoon
For the batter
  Dashi 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Flour 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Egg 1 Medium
  Sake 1 Dash

1. Take a bowl and add the minced garlic, sesame oil, soy sauce, honey, salt, fresh black pepper and some Korean red pepper flakes. Mix well.
2. Toss the beef pieces into the marinade and combine until all the pieces are well coated. Put it in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
3. While the beef is marinating, take a bowl and combine the dashi, flour, egg and sake to make the batter. The batter consistency should be a little thinner than a pancake batter. Add more dashi or water to thin it if required.

4. In a pot of boiling water, blanch the vegetables for about a minute.
5. To assemble, take a skewer and pierce through it the steak and vegetables color co-ordinating them alternatively.
6. Take a skillet with some oil and pre-heat it to a medium high heat. Dip the completed skewers and dip them in the batter, shake off the excess batter and fry them gently until they are done.

7. Serve warm with hot steamed rice and kimchi.
