  • Thinly slice the yellow and green onions.
  • Separate the white part of the green onions from the green part.
  • Place the green parts of the green onions in a small bowl, cover, and refrigerate until serving.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the sliced yellow onion, white parts of the green onion, and all the remaining ingredients except for the steak and set aside.
  • Very thinly slice the steak using a sharp knife.
  • Add the steak slices to the marinade, stir, and cover.
  • Let marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or as much as a day.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium high heat.
  • Cook the steak in a single layer in batches for best flavor. The goal is to sear and caramelize the steak without letting it steam. Cook for 4-5 minutes, flipping halfway, or until just cooked (do not overcook!).
  • Garnish with the reserved green onions and serve.


Cook the steak on the grill by threading the strips onto skewers.
