  • 1 lb flank steak
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 orange juiced and tested
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon garlic minced


  • Orange zest
  • Green onions sliced
  • Sesame seeds


  • Slice the flank steak into 2 inch chunks or into longer, thinner strips across the grain.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together: soy sauce, orange juice, orange zest, grated ginger, brown sugar, red pepper flakes and minced garlic. Whisk to combine and set aside.
  • Add sesame oil to a medium cast iron pan over medium-high heat.
  • Once the oil starts to simmer, add the sliced flank steak in one layer. Let it brown nicely for 1-2 minutes without turning it, after that, using tongs to turn beef on the other side to brown for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to low-medium and add the sauce to the pan.
  • Stir to combine and let the sauce simmer on low heat for about 5 minutes until it reduces in about half and it creates a sticky glaze.
  • Serve the beef over rice.
  • Garnish with fresh orange zest, green onions and sesame seeds.
