Ju Ju Marinated Top Round Steak
Prep Time 5 min ~ Cook Time 15 min
1 thick cut top round steak
4 oz low sodium soy sauce
2 oz toasted sesame oil
cracked black pepper
Place all ingredients into a shallow dish then place steak into dish. Be sure to turn the steak a couple of times during its marinating. You can marinate for as little as a few hours or up to 36 hours. Stab the raw steak with a meat fork while it marinates to allow those delicious flavors to soak in. Get your grill hot and make sure it is well seasoned. Place the steak on the grill and let those grill marks happen (grill marking is caramelizing the meat and that is what really brings out the flavor)! 5 min on each side or flip it more often for more grill marks! Let the meat rest for 10 minutes (depending on the size of the meat-the bigger the meat the more rest it needs)
This recipe works great with flank steak as well and also lends itself to being served with yaki soba!
