Especially during the summer, this makes a nice light meal. It's quick and easy, but it always wins me many compliments. Cooking is one of my favorite hobbies. I like to experiment with different recipes.—Tamara Steeb, Issaquah, Washington
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 beef top round steak (1 pound)

  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated gingerroot
  • Sesame seeds

Directions

  • 1. Preheat broiler. In a broiler pan 3-4 in. from heat, broil meat until it reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Cool and cut into thin diagonal strips.
