This recipe is a riff on Korean BBQ, which is usually cooked on a table-side grill. To keep it fast and simple any time of year, I opted for pan cooking, but you could fire up the grill for a more leisurely cookout vibe. The strips of beef are made spicy and special with a piquant relish of kimchi and sweet pear. When it’s doused with the creamy sauce, the whole shebang becomes a study in delicious contrasts: hot/cool, spicy/sweet, crispy/tender.
