I put together the marinade the night before. The smells of the soy sauce and sesame oil quickly filled my kitchen. Jacob came in and made a comment about how the marinade was a lot like the marinade for homemade beef jerky. Which quickly scared me that the steaks would taste like warm beef jerky. I let the flank steaks marinate over night in the mixture.
Jacob loved them. He kept talking about how great the marinade was. I thought they were good, just a little sweeter than I expected. I did really like the addition of the green onion and the sesame seeds. The seeds gave it that crunch, and the onion pieces offset the sweetness of the marinade. I served it over a bed of rice, just something simple since I knew the marinade would be pretty strong. I think this will definitely be a dish that will be made again.
