Soy-Glazed Flank Steak with Blistered Green Beans


This Asian steak entree gets loads of complexity from just a spoonful or two of flavor powerhouses like fresh ginger, peanut oil, and Asian chili paste.

Total Time:
35 mins


  • 1 pound fresh green beans

  • 1 pound beef flank steak

  • 6 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger

  • 2 - 3 tablespoon peanut oil

  • 4 green onions (white parts only), sliced diagonally

  • 2 tablespoon sweet rice wine (mirin)

  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon packed brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon Asian chili paste (sambal oelek)

  • Sesame seeds, toasted; hot cooked rice; snipped fresh herbs; chopped green onion (optional)


  1. If desired, trim and cut green beans in half diagonally. Trim fat from meat. Thinly slice meat across the grain into bite-size strips. In a small bowl combine garlic and ginger.

  2. In an extra-large skillet or wok heat 2 Tbsp. of the oil over medium-high heat. Add green beans; cook and stir 7 to 8 minutes or until blistered and brown in spots. Remove beans and drain on paper towels.

  3. If necessary, add remaining 1 Tbsp. oil to hot skillet. Add garlic mixture; cook and stir 30 seconds. Add meat, half at a time; cook and stir 3 minutes or until slightly pink in center. Return all of the meat to skillet. Add the next five ingredients (through chili paste); cook and stir 1 minute. Return beans; cook and stir 2 minutes more or until heated through.

  4. If desired, sprinkle meat mixture with sesame seeds and/or serve with rice sprinkled with herbs, chopped green onion, and/or coarse salt.
