About the Recipe


  • 1/2 cup soy sauce or tamari

  • 1/4 cup mirin

  • 1 Tbsp. honey

  • 1 Tbsp. chopped garlic

  • 1 Tbsp. chopped ginger

  • 3 bunches scallions, trimmed, divided

  • 1 Tbsp. rice vinegar

  • 3 Tbsp. avocado oil or other neutral oil, divided

  • 1 1/2 lb. skirt steak, trimmed and cut into 2-3 pieces.

  • Pinch of salt

  • 1/4 tsp. ground pepper

  • 2 tsp. toasted sesame seeds 


1. Combine soy sauce (or tamari), mirin, honey, garlic and ginger in a small bowl. Thinly slice 2 scallions and add to the mixture. Transfer half of the mixture (about 1/2 cup) to another container; cover and set aside.

2. Add rice vinegar and 2 Tbsp. oil to the remaining mixture in the bowl. Place steak in a shallow, nonreactive dish or ziplock plastic bag and pour the mixture over it. Marinate for at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours in the refrigerator.

3. Preheat grill to medium-high. 

4. Toss the remaining scallions with the remaining 1 Tbsp. oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Remove the steak from the marinade (discard marinade). Grill, flipping once halfway through, 4 to 6 minutes for medium. Grill the scallions, turning frequently, until softened and charred in spots, 2 to 4 minutes.

5. Let the steak rest 5 minutes before slicing. Slice the scallions into 2-inch pieces. Sprinkle the steak and scallions with sesame seeds and serve with the reserved sauce, as desired.
