COOK TIME

As with many marinated dishes, Asian Sesame Steak can be prepared the night before so it's ready and waiting for you to cook the next day. Besides, the longer you marinate your meats (as long as it's no more than 24 hours), the more flavorful and tender they become. Talk about a real time-saver!

What You'll Need

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce*
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (1-1/2-pound) beef flank steak, about 1 inch thick
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

What to Do

  1. In a large resealable plastic storage bag, combine all the ingredients except the steak and sesame seeds; mix well.

  2. Score the steak on both sides by making shallow diagonal cuts 1-1/2 inches apart. Place the steak in the storage bag, seal, and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight, turning the bag occasionally.

  3. Heat a large grill pan or skillet over high heat until hot. Remove the steak from the marinade and place on the pan, discarding the excess marinade. Cook the steak for 5 to 6 minutes per side for medium-rare, or to desired doneness.

  4. Thinly slice the steak across the grain. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, and serve.

Notes

 

  • To make this a gluten-free recipe, use gluten-free soy sauce, or pure tamari.
     
  • As with many of our other marinated dishes, this one can also be prepared the night before so it's ready and waiting for you to cook the next day. Besides, the longer you marinate your meats (as long as it's no more than 24 hours)l the more flavorful and tender they become.
