On September 22, Panda Express will release Kobari Beef from their gigantic woks.
It’s the first quasi-Korean dish available from the quasi-Chinese fast food joint.
The Korean-style barbeque beef dish is being described as sweet, smoky and spicy. It combines slices of marinated tri-tip beef, seared mushrooms, freshly cut leeks, onions, and red bell peppers with a “Kobari sauce.”
Kobari Beef will be available for a limited time.

I’ve never seen a Korean dish like that. What dish is it supposed to resemble?
I’m guessing kalbi. I tried to find out if kobari is an actual word in Korean, but it seems it is not.
The post I really want to comment on is 5 years old and appears to have comments off. But I wanted to say “thank you!” for your post on Cheap Ass Towels. I need some Cheap Ass Towels for a non-standard use and all the theoretically cheap places like Target & IKEA are actually expensive. Sears no longer carries the brand you mention, or maybe it is just under a new name but they are still cheap as heck and I’m gunna go get me sum. Thanks!
You’re welcome. 🙂
Ooh, fake Korean food from a fake Chinese chain. Seriously, are the Panda Expresses on the mainland good? Because the ones in Hawaii have absolutely no taste or flavor. Normally I would concede that the food is prepared to suit the taste of Americans, but that stuff is so baby food bland that it couldn’t possibly be formulated for salt & sugar fiend American palates.
Gawd, I just checked their Facebook page. Over 500,000 people “like” them. What the heck am I missing? Supposedly there is a coupon for “free” Kobari beef somewhere on that page, but I couldn’t find it.
It’s fresh, fast and located in most major shopping malls.
Kobari sounds more Japanes to me.
The only thing korean are the sesame seeds but then again the japanese use that a lot as well. I think this is one of the things we’re not missing out on on the european side of the big pond.
I also thought it sounds more like Japanese. Now that Panda Express does quasi-Korean dishes, I hope they introduce quasi-Japanese dishes.
Keep an eye out at gizmodo’s dealzmodo. I will put money they give it away a couple of times. They do every time they come out with a new menu item. It’s completely fake asian food but I like it. You have to have the mind set that you are eating fast food. It’s like getting eggrolls from jack in the box. They are totally delicous.
Update on my comment. You don’t have to like them on facebook. Here’s the coupon, sure enough, good on September 29th.
