Asian Grilled Steak

Fresh off a week of cooking budget friendly meals I sought a change of pace, nothing say's change of pace like a grilled steak. But I sought a more robust flavor and something lively to excite my taste buds. So I thought about a petite sirloin marinated in Hoisin and soy sauce. Grilled to perfection and covered in a simple sauce with ginger and garlic.

4 (8oz) petite sirloin
1/3 cup Hoisin sauce
1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/2 cup sliced green onions
3 Tbsp dry sherry
1 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tbsp crushed red pepper
1 cup beef broth
1 garlic clove minced
1 tsp minced ginger
1/4 cup minced cilantro
1 tbsp hot sauce
green onions for garnish
steamed white rice

Place sirloin in a large zip lock bag, add Hoisin through crushed red pepper. Seal bag and place in the refrigerator to marinate for 4 to 24 hours. Remove the steak from the fridge, take it out of the bag and discard the marinade. Place on the counter to come to room temperature. Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees, cover a sheet pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. Pre-heat a grill pan until smoking add the steaks to the pan on a 45 degree angle cook the steak for two minutes then turn them 90 degrees for two minutes. Flip the steaks over and do the same thing again. When all the steak are done place them on the sheet pan and put them in the oven for 5 minutes, remove from the oven and tent with foil for 5 minutes. In a small saucepan combine beef broth through hot sauce over medium heat until reduced by a 1/3. It should thicker but not syrupy, it will be loose. Mound rice on the plate, cut the steak on the basis and fan over the rice drizzle with the sauce and serve. This was a little bit of a splurge meal but worth every penny 4 serving at $2.31 per plate great meal at great savings.
