Ingredients

4 ounces flank steak

1 tablespoon mirin 

1 tablespoon soy sauce 

1 teaspoon minced ginger

1/4 teaspoon garlic chile sauce, such as sambal

Zest of 1 lime 

Juice of 1/2 lime 

8 to 10 asparagus, trimmed 

1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil 

1 teaspoon sesame seeds 

Directions

  1. Place the steak in the freezer for 45 minutes. This will make it easier to slice.
  2. Thinly slice the steak, about five 4-inch-long strips. In a medium bowl, mix the mirin, soy sauce, ginger, chile sauce, lime zest and lime juice. Add the steak and marinate, covered, for at least 2 hours.
  3. Toss the asparagus in the sesame oil. Remove the steak from the marinade. Wrap 2 pieces of asparagus with a single piece of steak. Heat a grill pan set over high heat until smoking. Grill each bundle, turning, until all sides are cooked and the asparagus begins to wilt, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds, and then serve.
