Prep everything ahead and even cook the meat the night before serving. Make it a meal by serving with a salad and rice or noodles and veggies.

Avoid overcooking the steak. This shoulder cut is tender and full flavored when served medium-rare or rare.

Serve the meat, thinly sliced with salad, lettuce wraps, rice or Asian noodles and with the remaining marinade drizzled over the top.

Make sure to use a great quality extra virgin olive oil. We love Colavita!

GLUTEN FREE? Use gluten free soy sauce.
