  1. Mix tamari, sambal, and vinegar in a big bowl.
  2. Shred the bok choy lengthwise. Add onion, mushrooms, and bok choy to the tamari dressing and toss until completely covered. Let rest while you prepare the meat.
  3. Brush the meat with olive oil. Salt and pepper generously. Fry (or grill) the flank steak on high heat in a large frying pan for 2-3 minutes on each side or until cooked to your desired temperature. Cover and allow the meat to rest for a couple of minutes. Slice the meat in 1/2 inch (1 cm) thick slices diagonally.
  4. Mix the ingredients for the sesame mayonnaise.
  5. Serve the meat with the marinated vegetables and a generous dollop of sesame mayonnaise.

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 even salmon or fresh tuna if you wish!

    Love this recipe! But I always gently stir fry the veggies. It’s a nice touch.

    Hi Andrea Did you stir fry after marinating? If you did i must try that next time. We thought they would be good with burgers too.
