ABOUT THE DISH

This flavorful marinade helps the thin slices of sirloin tenderize, as well as prepare for high-heat. This quick style of cooking in turn imparts rich, caramelized flavors, and the remaining marinade cooks down to a delicious sauce.  Perfect over a bowl of hot rice to stave off the winter chill.
