Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Trim fat from steak. Score both sides of flank steak in a diamond pattern. Place steak in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. For marinade, in a small bowl combine soy sauce, brown sugar, oil, ginger, and garlic. Pour marinade over steak. Seal bag; turn to coat steak. Marinate in the refrigerator for 6 to 24 hours, turning bag occasionally. Drain steak, discarding marinade.

  • For a charcoal grill, place steak on the grill rack directly over medium coals. Grill, uncovered, for 17 to 21 minutes for medium (160 degrees F), turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place steak on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)

  • To serve, thinly slice steak diagonally across the grain. Arrange steak slices on top of bok choy leaves and sprinkle with sesame seeds and green onion.
