Asian Essentials: East meets West Steak Sauce

Andy Anderson !


I call this an Asian steak sauce, because I believe that it works so well with beef, and gives the steak a hint of Asian flavor.

I played about with the ingredients until I achieved a good balance between the sauce and the beef.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
