  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp sambal oelek or sriracha sauce
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 1 red onionred onions
  • ½ lb 225 g mushrooms
  • 2 2 bok choy or any similar type of cabbage
  • 1 lb 450 g flank steak
  • 2 tbsp 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper

  • ¾ cup 175 ml mayonnaise

  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Mix soy sauce, sambal and vinegar in a bowl. Clean and slice the onion and mushrooms really thin. Shred the cabbage lengthwise, preferably slightly thick. Add onion, mushrooms and cabbage to the soy dressing. Let rest while you prepare the meat.
  2. Brush the meat with olive oil. Salt and pepper to taste. Fry or grill as long as it takes, depending on how you like your meat — medium rare or well done. Allow to rest for a few minutes before cutting into thin slanted pieces.
  3. Mix the ingredients for the sesame mayonnaise. Mayo tastes best when it's not ice cold.
  4. Serve the meat with the marinated vegetables and a generous dollop of sesame mayo.

Tip!

Instead of flank steak you can use minute steak or any other thinly sliced meat — pork or lamb. Adjust the cooking time accordingly.

You can also use chicken fillet or why not some salmon or fresh tuna?
