These tender sirloin strips from Joe Varga of Collingswood, New Jersey are marinated in a soy sauce mixture that gives them a wonderful Asian flavor. For a more ethnic version, you could use Japanese rice wine (sake). The beef strips can also be grilled.

"I made this recipe on a work day and it turned out to be very easy and tasty! I made minor changes due to what ingredients I had available.I used gluten free soy sauce and did not have sesame seeds so I left those out. My husband could not stop talking about how much he enjoyed this recipe too.I'm certain we will be having this recipe again soon!"
