Flank steak marinated in soy sauce, honey and garlic is grilled and topped with a saucy stir-fry of mushrooms and scallions.

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 lb flank steak
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic, very finely chopped
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons toasted sesame oil

For the mushrooms:

  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, very finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger, very finely chopped
  • 8 ounces cremini or white mushrooms, sliced
  • 6 scallions, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons mirin

Instructions

  1. Whisk together the soy sauce, garlic, honey, sriracha and sesame oil. Pour into a heavy-duty zip top bag or shallow dish, add the steak and turn several times to coat. Marinate for at least 4 hours, turning occasionally.
  2. Preheat a grill, grill pan or broiler on high heat. While the grill preheats, prepare the mushrooms. Heat the sesame oil in a wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and ginger and stir-fry until fragrant and soft, 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms and continue cooking until any liquid they've given off has evaporated and they begin to brown. Add the soy sauce and mirin and simmer until the liquid has reduced slightly and the mushrooms are tender, 3 minutes. Add the scallions and remove from the heat.
  3. Cook the steak for 2-1/2 to 3 minutes per side for rare to medium-rare. Allow to rest for 5 to 7 minutes before slicing across the grain. Serve with steamed rice and top with the mushroom-scallion mixture.
