Asian Moo on Crack

Sorry for the lack-o-post, its been a busy post-hurricane week. But the show must go on. And by that I mean the housewarming party. I've been experimenting in preparation and really liked this one.

  • 1/2 C Light Soy
  • 5 Cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1 T Ginger, Minced
  • 2 T Honey
  • 1 T Sesame Oil
  • 4 T Olive Oil, Divided
  • 2 Limes, Juice Squeezed
  • 4 Oz Cream Cheese
  • 4 T Sour Cream
  • 1/3 C Wasabi
  • 1/2 C Cilantro Leaves
  • 1 LB Flank Steak
  • Sesame Crackers
  • Grape Tomatoes, Halved

Mix soy, garlic, ginger, honey, sesame oil and half of the olive oil in a large Ziploc bag. Add steak and shake. Refrigerate flat for at least 3 hours, turning over once.

Mix cream cheese, sour cream and wasabi in a small bowl then refrigerate.

Heat remaining olive oil in a large pan over med high heat. Sear steak on each side for 3 minutes then continue to cook to the desired doneness (another 3 minutes on each side for med rare). Remove from heat and let sit for 30 minutes. Slice thinly against grain.

To assemble, spread wasabi cream cheese mixture on a sesame cracker. Fix a cilantro leaf to the cream cheese mixture. Add a slice of beef on top. Optionally add a grape tomato half on top of the beef.
