Asian Steak Bites


 



Asian Steak Bites







Bite-sized pieces of steak are quickly tossed in a honey soy marinade, then cooked for a few minutes. Those crisp, juicy steak bites go away quickly.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon of Kikkoman Thai chili sauce
  • 2 tablespoons + 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil separated
  • 1 lb and 1/2 lb flank sirloin steak also works
  • 4 tablespoons Kikkoman Less Sodium Soy Sauce
  • Optional: toasted sesame seeds

Sauce

  • 2 large limes
  • 1 teaspoon of white sugar
  • Lean 1/2 cup real mayonnaise
  • 3 teaspoons Kikkoman Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce

INSTRUCTIONS

Steak bites

First, cut the steak: Trim the excess fat from the meat, then cut strips of meat against the grain and just under 1 inch wide.

Then, rotate the strips and cut them into small pieces. (Remove any large chunks of fat or cartilage.)

In a large bowl, whisk together soy sauce, honey, chili paste, 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil and garlic.

Place the cut pieces of meat in the mixture and toss well to coat. Cover tightly and marinate for at least 20 minutes and up to 4 hours.

(While marinating, whisk together the sauce!)

When you're ready to cook, turn on your fan.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high to high heat. As the pan heats up, add 1 tablespoon of sesame oil.

Place some of the steak in the pan in a single layer. It should sizzle very hard as soon as it hits the pan for a nice mess. (If not, the pot is not hot enough.)

Do not stir or move the meat for 30 to 45 seconds. You want it to sizzle and brown on one side. Quickly flip the bites and cook for an additional 30 to 45 seconds, just long enough to sear the outside of the meat without cooking the inside. You want these bites to be tender, so avoid overcooking.

Remove all cooked steak bites to a plate. Add the rest of the sesame oil to the pan and repeat the cooking process with the next batch as before.

Once all the meat is cooked, garnish with sesame seeds if desired and enjoy with the dipping sauce.

Sauce

Zest part of a lime to make 1/2 teaspoon of lime zest, then squeeze 2 limes to make about 3-4 tablespoons of lime juice.

Combine mayonnaise, lime juice, lime zest, sriracha and white sugar in a bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste. Stir well then taste (add lime or sriracha depending on your personal preference).

Happy Cooking Time.
