The easy spicy asian inspired meat is great over rice, or in a taco!


  • 1 yellow onion
  • 3/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1 1/2 pounds round steak, sliced paper thin
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil


  1. Cut onion in half. Dice one half very small, and grate the other half, using a grater. Place into a medium bowl. Add in the soy sauce, sesame oil, brown sugar, garlic, carrot, red pepper flakes, and sesame seeds. Whisk together.
  2. Place meat in a large bowl or ziptop bag. Pour marinade on top of meat, stirring to coat.
  3. Refrigerate the meat at least 3 hours or overnight.
  4. Heat oil in a large skillet or wok over high heat.
  5. Pour both the meat and all the marinade into the skillet. Stirring constantly cook the meat for 3-4 minutes until the meat is no longer pink.
  6. Serve warm over rice or in lettuce wraps.
  7. Garnish with green onions, extra sesame seeds, and chili oil for extra heat, if desired.


* Trick – I ask my butcher to slice the meat paper thin. You could also freeze the meat and slice it thin using a very sharp knife. Freezing it makes it easier to slice.
