Korean Barbeque Beef "tacos"

3 lbs top sirloin
1 c. sugar
1 c. low sodium soy sauce
2 Tbsp sesame oil
1 c. green onions
6 large cloves garlic
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tbsp cornstarch mixed with 1/4 cup water
romaine leaves, washed and dried
steamed rice
Add sugar, soy sauce, oil, onions, garlic and spices to blender and pulse on high 30 seconds. Slice meat along side into large thin pieces (1/2" thick) (Reserve half the marinade) Pour marinade into large ziploc with meat. Marinade 4 hours, then grill. Pour reserved marinade into saucepan and bring to a boil, whisk in cornstarch and water mixture. Stir until thickened. Pour over meat or serve on the side. Slice meat into small pieces (I just use my kitchen scissors) Make a "taco" by placing some rice, meat and sauce on top of lettuce leaf, fold in half and eat.
I have eaten them this way, yummy, but messy for kids. The next time I made it I just served it over rice and it was equally delicious.
