So it has been exactly 9 days since I posted the Sesame Chicken recipe, and 12 days since the first time I made it. I have since made it, count it, five times and eaten it every way possible tossed over rice, wrapped up in lettuce wraps, in an Asian inspired salad, and even once for breakfast. I think there may be something slightly wrong with me, that’s almost every other day. So last night while I stared into my fridge waiting for it to tell me what to make (there was no chicken), it spoke to me. Sesame beef! Of course. So my obsession continues with this recipe.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

In a small bowl, whisk the beef stock, brown sugar, sesame oil, garlic, soy sauce, and white vinegar together. Set aside.

In another bowl, toss the beef with salt, pepper, and flour.

In a large pan (make sure it’s oven safe) heat the olive oil over medium heat. Once hot, add the beef in one layer. Cook for three minutes on one side until seared and then flip and cook for another three minutes on the other side.

Turn off the heat and pour the beef stock mixture over the beef, stirring to combine.

Place the entire pan in the oven and cook for 15-20 minutes. Then toss the beef with sesame seeds and serve.

Super delicious! I made this with Carne Asada beef since it was half the price of Flank Steak and they look the same :) I honestly don't know my cuts of meat all that well. It crisped up in the oven and the sauce stuck divinely to the meat. I felt like I was eating at a fine restaurant, it was so good.
