Asian Inspired Steak

I have been sitting on this recipe for WAY TOO LONG.  Like two months.  Well…less than that.  But still a really freaking long time and I am just going to bang out this post right now to get it over with.  Deal?  Good. 

This Asian inspired steak recipe comes from Savory Sweet Life and was really good!  As usual, I definitely recommend marinading it longer than just a few hours – overnight is always best!  The longer you marinade, the longer the flavours get to be mixed into the meat.  We also grilled this, because it was still summer aka “grilling season” – but if you’re like us, feel free to grill this steak year-round, or I am sure you can broil it, too.

We paired it with green beans, but feel free to pair with another vegetable, stir fry, or rice!

Asian Inspired Steak


-1/2cu soy sauce
-1/2cu cooking sherry
-1/4cu honey
-2tbsp sesame oil
-2tbsp minced ginger
-2tbsp (about 3-5 cloves) minced garlic
-2tsp crushed red pepper flakes
-2 flat iron steaks (or a similar steak of your choice)
-Garnish: 2tbsp roasted sesame seeds and 2 sliced green onions

-Whisk all of the ingredients in a bowl, minus the steak and garnish. Then place the steaks and marinade in a ziplock bag and chill for at least 3-6 hours, or overnight (or in a bowl with a lid).
-Grill steaks on high heat for 4 minutes on each side for medium rare steaks (adjust cooking time based on your grill and preferred done-ness).
-Allow steaks to rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving. Sprinkle roasted sesame seeds and green onion slivers on top to garnish.
