*I've skipped adding onions since I ran out of onions that day! So the picture is missing the onions ><

**For meat, I've used Beef Chuck Short Rib meat from Costco. Whenever I buy those, I either marinade it or grill it or use it for soup or dish like Jap Chae. I used one strip of the meat from the package below and sliced them thin.
