  1. In a bowl, whisk together the pear, garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar, red pepper flakes and ⅓ cup sesame oil.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a plastic bag and add the sliced beed. Move the bag around to coat the beef on all sides.
  3. Marinade the beef for 30 minutes to overnight in the refrigerator.
  4. Preheat the grill to medium high heat, 170°C to 200°C.
  5. Drizzle the remaining 3 tablespoons of sesame oil over the top of the peppers, onions and bok choy. Then, season with salt and pepper.
  6. Remove the sliced beef from the marinade and discard. Evenly spread the beef directly over the grates. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until a desired internal temperature is reached. Remove from the grill and let rest for 4 to 5 minutes.
  7. At the same time that the beef is placed onto the grill, add the capsicums, onions, and bok choy to the grates. Grill for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until the vegetables are tender.
  8. To plate, add 2 cups of cooked rice to a bowl. Add some cooked beef, vegetables and a hard-boiled egg to the bowl around the rice. Repeat 3 more times for a total of 4 servings. Garnish with optional sesame seeds and coriander leaves.
    HOT TIP – Hard boiled eggs can be made using the side burner during your cook.
