Flat Iron Steak with Chili-Hoisin Sauce

Hoisin is like Chinese barbecue sauce and can be found along with the rice vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil and chili garlic sauce in the international section of your grocery store. Here, it serves as a quick way to add rich Asian flavor to succulent steak.

2 tablespoons Rice vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
1 1/2 teaspoons Asian chili-garlic sauce


1 1/2 lb. beef flat iron steaks or flank steak, patted dry

1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon sesame seeds

1. Combine sauce ingredients in small bowl. Sprinkle steaks with salt and pepper.
