These sesame noodles are from The Pioneer Woman
1 lb skirt steak, or other (I used flank)
2 T cooking oil
1 1/2 T unsalted butter
1 minced shallot
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 C balsamic vinegar
2 t sugar
1/2 C beef, chicken, or veggie stock (I used chicken)
2 T soy sauce
1 T sweet rice wine (mirin)
Melt butter & oil in saucepan. Add shallots & garlic. Cook 3 minutes or until soft. Pour in balsamic vinegar & bring to a boil. Turn heat to medium-low & simmer for 15 minutes (should be thick and glossy like above picture). Add sugar, stock, soy sauce and rice wine. Stir well. Bring to a boil. Turn heat to low & simmer for 5 minutes. Let cool. Reserve 1/2 C sauce for marinating and 1/4 C for serving.
Place steak and 1/2 C sauce in a ziplock bag. Marinate for 2 hours or overnight.
30 minutes before grilling, remove steak from fridge & let sit at room temp. Discard the marinade & pat dry with a paper towel.
Grill steak for 3-5 min. on each side for medium rare. Rest for 5 minutes when done for it to cook through. Serve with extra marinade.
12 oz. linguine, cooked & drained
