What You Need
  • 3 pounds petite sirloin steak
  • 6 Tbsp. granulate white sugar
  • 2/3 cups reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 Tbsp. toasted sesame seeds, crushed
  • 1 Tbsp. chili garlic sauce
  1. Freeze steaks until firm, about 30 minutes.  

  2. Warm a nonstick pan over medium heat.  Place sesame seeds in the dry pan.  Stir or flip occasionally, until toasted.  Watch carefully, they burn quickly.  Remove from pan to cool.  Crush in a blender, food processor, or with a mortar and pestle-- I'm not choosy.

  3. Remove steak from freezer when firm (not frozen).  Cut steak against the grain into 1/4-inch slices.

  4. In a large resealable bag, combine soy sauce, sugar, chili garlic sauce, and sesame seeds.  Place strips into marinade, making sure to incorporate all meat in mixture.  Place in refrigerator for 4 hours.

  5. Once ready to eat, heat the grill so that it is hot, hot, hot.  Thread beef onto metal or soaked wooden skewers; discard any remaining marinade.  Grill beef, covered, for 2-3 minutes on each side, until the desired doneness.

  6. If desired, sprinkle with thinly sliced green onions & chopped cilantro.
