Oriental Sirloin Steak

This weekend I was looking for an oriental style steak marinade but wanted one without the added sugars of many Asian cooking sauces.

This is a sauce I normally make as a base for Mu Shu Chicken but after making it recently I realized that with a slight adjustment to reduce the sugar, so it wouldn't burn on the grill, it would make a great marinade for sirloin steaks.  Flipping the steaks a few times on the grill cooked them perfectly without the sauce charring too much. 

They had great flavor and Partner in Grime gave them two thumbs up.

Asian Steak Marinade

1/3 cup Hoisin sauce
3 Tablespoons soy sauce
2 Tablespoons Mirin (Japanese cooking wine)
1 and 1/2 Tablespoons toasted sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon powdered garlic
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh ginger.
dash of cracked pepper

Mix together and marinate steaks in a gallon zip lock bag for 2-4 hours.  Drain and grill.
