Serves: 4


  • ¼ tsp. ground ginger
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 10 oz. flank steak
  • 1 Tbsp. sesame oil
  • 3 Tbsp. sesame seeds


  • For the marinade, grate the ginger finely until you have 2 teaspoons. Combine with the soy sauce and brown sugar. Place beef in a shallow glass dish. Refrigerate and marinate the meat for at least 1 hour. Reserve any excess marinade and place the meat on a serving platter.
  • Toast the sesame seeds by spreading out on a frying pan and cooking at low heat until they brown. Cool.
  • Heat a grill. Cook the steak over indirect hot coals for 4 minutes on each side (for medium). Remove to a platter and allow to rest of five minutes. Heat reserved marinade in a small pot until it comes to a boil.
  • After allowing the meat to rest, slice it against the grain, drizzle with boiled marinade and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
