Ingredients

  • 2-1/2 pounds beef top sirloin or flank steak

Garlic Soy Marinade:

  • 1/2 cup lite soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

Teriyaki Sauce:

  • 1/3 cup lite soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup mirin sweet rice wine
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated or minced fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

For Garnish:

  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 3 or 4 green onions chopped

Instructions

  • Place steak in a gallon-sized resealable plastic storage bag. Combine Garlic Soy Marinade ingredients in a small bowl and pour over the steak. Seal the bag and refrigerate for a minimum of 1 hour or up to 6 hours.
  • Cook steaks on a heated grill for approximately 7 to 10 minutes per side. The amount of time needed to cook your steak to the desired level will depend on the thickness of your cut.
  • Meanwhile, whisk together all of the Teriyaki Sauce ingredients, through garlic, in a small saucepan. Place over medium heat. Whisk the cornstarch into the water until dissolved and then add the mixture to the pan. Cook, stirring until slightly thickened. Remove from heat.
  • Thinly slice the steak across the grain and drizzle with some of the sauce. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and green onion and serve with remaining sauce on the side.

Notes

To finely grate your ginger, use a microplane or lemon zester.
