  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/4 cup fish sauce
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp harissa or Thai chili garlic paste
  • Juice and zest of 1 lime
  • 1 Tbsp ground ginger
  • 2 lbs flank steak
  • 1 tbsp dried cilantro


  • ¼ cup of Coconut Liquid Aminos or soy sauce
  • 2.5 Tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 Tbsp harissa or Thai chili garlic paste
  • 3 scallions chopped

To Serve:

  • White rice cooked
  • Edamame shelled
  • Broccolini
  • Cucumbers
  • Fresh herbs


  • Combine marinade ingredients and whisk well. Pour over steak in gallon sized bag or shallow baking dish. Work around to cover as much of steak as possible.
  • Marinade steak in sauce for 3-6 hours.
  • Remove steak from marinade and shake off excess marinade. Lay on cutting board. Add 1” hash marks randomly on both sides to cook evenly.
  • Heat cast iron pan or other large skillet over medium high heat. Add small amount of oil to pan. Place steak in cast iron skillet and cook for 4-5 minutes. Flip and repeat for another 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat and cover with foil. Let sit 10 minutes.
  • While steak is resting, steam any veggies serving with rice bowls. Prepare rice as well.
  • Whisk together ingredients for sauce. This can be served room temperature or slightly heated and reduced down, if desired.
  • Prepare bowls by serving steak over jasmine rice. Top with sauce. Garnish vegetables, fresh herbs and scallions. Add lime wedges if desired.
  • Have a few extra minutes? Make our easy pickled cucumbers. Slice cucumbers and place in a small bowl. Mix with 1 tsp sesame oil, 1 Tbsp white wine vinegar, 1 Tbsp lime juice and 1 tsp fish sauce. Add a pinch of salt and 1 Tbsp sugar. Toss and less sit for at least 15 minutes and serve on bowls in place of regular cucumbers.
