"Didnt let it marinade as long as it should have, was so hungry! In any case, it still smelled and tasted wonderful. We cooked it inside on the stove instead of on a grill. It was just too cold out... but I can only imagine it being better on a grill."

Are you making this? 
1 1.75-lb flank steak; (up to 2 lb.)
1/2 cup Soy sauce
1/3 cup green onions; thinly sliced
2 tablespoons Asian sesame oil
3 tablespoons Sugar
3 cloves garlic; peeled and pressed or minced

Original recipe makes 6



1. Rinse beef and pat dry. Cut steak at a 45 angle across the grain, cutting almost, but not completely, through. Make another cut 1/4 inch from the first cut, following the same angle and cutting all the way through. Open up butterflied slices and place in a large bowl.

2. Add soy, green onions, sesame oil, sugar, and garlic to bowl; mix to coat. Cover and chill at least 30 minutes or up to 4 hours.

3. Spread slices open on an oiled grill over a bed of hot coals or high heat on a gas grill (you can hold your hand at grill level only 2 to 3 seconds); close lid on gas grill. Cook, turning once, until browned on both sides, 5 to 6 minutes total.


NOTES: Save hard-to-slice end pieces of uncooked steak to use in Korean clear noodles with mixed vegetables

LOVE this recipe. I've made this it probably 10 times or so.... tonight, I decided to combine this with some broccoli and rice noodles for 'beef and broccoli' Few changes/notes to do this: 1. for the sauce I only use 2 Tbsps sugar 2. To make sauce for the broccoli, I doubled the sauce recipe and used half for marinade and half for the sauce (in hind sight could have used only half additional recipe for sauce -- we had plenty of sauce) 3. Cooked the beef as instructed on the grill 4. Made a pot of rice noodles using instructions on the package 5. Heated wok pan on high heat. added 1 tbsp of peanut oil with one clove of garlic, added one head of broccoli sliced into small strips, plus one small onion sliced. 6. Once veggies are slightly cooked added the sauce until heated, then added the 1 tbsp cornstarch, mixing the entire time. 7. Once sauce thickens, added the rice noodles and the meat that is off the grill. YUM!

I only added a dash of sriracha to the marinade, but I certainly thought that this was easy and very good.
