"Thai flavors combine to make one phenomenal steak! Flank steak is our favorite, but it's also great for other cuts of meat. It's great with grilled veggies, and perfect for salads and sandwiches." — lcpgh

1 1/2 tablespoons
dark sesame oil
grated fresh ginger root
garlic, peeled and crushed
All I can say is "Wow!". Seeing fish sauce in the ingredients made me wonder, but am I ever glad I tried this. Even though I messed up and marinated for 36 hours cause I got busy elsewhere, this is one of the best, if not the best, marinate for beef I've tried.
I made this recipe (exactly as stated) --- and unfortunely it wasnt good. It actually had a tangy taste and neither my husband or I enjoyed it. I'm sorry for the poor rating....
This was my first experience with fish sauce. I opened the bottle and all I could think was this must be the nastiest smelling stuff ever made. Don't let that put you off though, because the steak ends up really tasty. I found the ginger and sesame to be the dominate flavors in the steak, but I did every so often get a hint of the fish sauce. I think it is something everyone should try for themselves at least once, but if you are not an adventurous person, this is not the recipe for you.
I didn't have the sesame oil, so I used olive oil. It was absolutely perfect. My husband was very impressed (he thought he was the only one that could make a good marinade).
It was a dream come true!
I sliced the 2 pound slab of steak into 6 individual steaks. I used a gallon size freezer bag to marinade it in rather than a dish. I didnt have a bbq grill so I used my toaster oven to broil it (3 pieces at a time). 6 min on one side at 8 minutes on the other (it came out medium well).
Does not taste fishy at all. The fish sauce is salty so dont add soy sauce or salt until u taste it first. I used normal sesame oil. It was delicous!
"Score" means cut a diagonal slice into the steak.
Just made this again for the upteenth time! I have never found another marinade this great. Don't be put off by the fish sauce--it does not taste fishy. It is an amazing taste!!
I used a top sirloin cut to make this, and adjusted the recipe just a bit. I added the juice of half a lime, and then let it sit in the fridge for a few hours. It gives it a slightly tangy taste, and gives it a Thai taste. Very juicy!
This honestly made the best steak that I have ever ever had in my life. I could have eaten the whole two pounds by myself. I highly recommend this...don't tweak anything!
