Fry (or grill) the flank steak over 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.

  5. Serve the meat with the marinated vegetables and a generous dollop of sesame mayonnaise.

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

You can also use chicken fillet, 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.

    Mushrooms don't have a great direct substitute. You may wish to use a different side dish instead.
