We had dinner a month ago at our neighbor across the street, they served the most delicious grilled tri tip on earth. As usual, I manage to convince them to share the secret. According to her, the original recipe is for "Korean-Style Short Ribs" but she has only used the marinate recipe for tri-tip and flank steak. For this post I used flank steak. So here is her recipe, hope you like it as much as we do.
This recipe should be enough to marinate about 4 to 5 pounds of meat.
Ingredients:1 cup soy sauce (she likes to use the "less sodium" one, I used tamari)
1/2 cup sesame oil
1/4 cup chopped green onions (about 2 or three, depending on size, both the white and green part)
1/4 cup sugar
6 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp sesame seeds
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1/2 tsp white vinegar
Marinate the meat overnight with about three and a quarter of the marinate, reserve the rest in a separate container. When you are ready to serve the steak, boil the reserve marinate, and pour over the finished cooked meat.
