  • Servings 6

Ingredients

1/2
cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/2
cup rice vinegar
1
tablespoon finely chopped gingerroot
1
tablespoon Dijon mustard
6
medium green onions, sliced (6 tablespoons)
4
cloves garlic, crushed
1
boneless beef sirloin steak, 1 1/2 inches thick (2 1/4 lb)
  • 1 In large resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix all ingredients except beef.
  • 2 Score beef crosswise by making cuts 1/2 inch apart and 1/4 inch deep (beef will absorb more of the marinade and cook more evenly). Place beef in bag; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate 2 hours to marinate, turning bag once after 1 hour.
  • 3 Heat gas or charcoal grill. Remove beef from marinade; reserve marinade in 1-quart saucepan. Pat beef dry with paper towel. Place beef on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 10 minutes. Turn beef; cover grill and cook 10 to 15 minutes longer for medium-rare (145°F). Cook 2 minutes longer for medium (160°F).
  • 4 Meanwhile, heat reserved marinade to boiling over medium-high heat; boil 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove and discard garlic.
  • 5 To serve, cut beef into slices; spoon sauce over beef.
