Soy n' Sesame Flank Steak

Soy n' Sesame Flank Steak

These juicy strips of grilled flank steak are marinated with garlic, soy sauce, chili paste, & sesame oil. These go super fast in my house, so, you may want to make a lot!

I love finding new protein sources for main dish dinners. Flank steak is packed with it and it's easily prepped with minimal effort. You can cut & marinate the night before or earlier in the day and let the meat soak up the delicious Asian flavors. 

And with no surprise you'll have a furry friend right by your side

I prefer to cook this on an outdoor grill, but a cast iron grill pan or indoor grill works as well.


  • 2 lbs flank steak, thinly sliced
  • 2/3 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp. chili paste
  • 1 thumb of fresh ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • A dash of sesame seeds


  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl and marinate the steak for at least 1 hour or more. 
  • Heat your grill or grill pan to high heat; when hot grill a few minutes on each side until browned and cooked though.


  • Yields about 20 strips ( 4 servings)
  • One serving = 5 strips or 5oz

For tonight's side dishes I prepared polenta and roasted Brussels sprouts. I always like to have a healthy carbohydrate, vegetable, and protein source at every dinner.

f you make this recipe, be sure to snap a photo and hashtag it #Fitgirlxtina. I'd love to see what you create!
