Asian Beef Strips Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Broil: 5 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound beef top sirloin steak, cut into 1/4-inch strips
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons white wine or unsweetened apple juice
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Hot cooked rice, optional

Directions

  • 1. Flatten each strip of steak to 1/8-in. thickness. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the onions, soy sauce, sugar, wine, garlic, sesame seeds, oil and pepper; add the beef. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Drain and discard marinade.
  • 2. Place beef on a small broiler pan. Broil 3-4 in. from the heat for 2-3 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness. Serve with rice if desired. Yield: 2 servings.
