|YIELDS: 4 Servings||PREP TIME: 10 mins||COOK TIME: 10 mins||TOTAL TIME: 20 mins|
1 lb top sirloin, cubed
1 tsp smoked paprika
Salt and pepper, taste
2 tbsp vegetable oil
3 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
¼ cup water
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp rice vinegar
½ tsp dried oregano
1 tbsp cornstarch
Sesame seeds, for garnish
Thinly sliced green onions, for garnish
Cast iron skillet
- Season the cubed steak pieces with paprika, salt, and pepper and set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the soy sauce, water, garlic, honey, sesame oil, rice vinegar, oregano, and cornstarch. Whisk until well combined and set aside.
- Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large, cast iron skillet over medium-high until hot.
- Add about half of the steak cubes and cook for around 2 minutes per side, until your desired level of doneness is reached.
- Remove from the skillet and repeat with the remaining oil and steak cubes.
- When all of the steak bites are cooked, give the sauce a whisk and pour about 1/3 of it into the skillet, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan as you do so.
- Return the steak bites to the pan, pour the remaining sauce over the top, and simmer for 1-2 minutes, until the steak is heated through and the sauce begins to thicken.
- Remove from heat and transfer to a serving platter.
- Garnish with sesame seeds and sliced green onions. Serve and enjoy!
Note: I found adding a little more honey to the mix makes the dish pop more. If you like it spicy, add about 1/2 tsp of crushed red pepper.
