Juicy bites of sirloin in a sweet and savory, sesame-honey-garlic sauce. Makes a great game day appetizer or serve over rice for a quick dinner!


1 lb top sirloin, cubed
1 tsp smoked paprika
Salt and pepper, taste
2 tbsp vegetable oil
3 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
¼ cup water
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp rice vinegar
½ tsp dried oregano
1 tbsp cornstarch
Sesame seeds, for garnish
Thinly sliced green onions, for garnish

Large bowl 
Cutting board 
Cast iron skillet


  1. Season the cubed steak pieces with paprika, salt, and pepper and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the soy sauce, water, garlic, honey, sesame oil, rice vinegar, oregano, and cornstarch. Whisk until well combined and set aside.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large, cast iron skillet over medium-high until hot.
  4. Add about half of the steak cubes and cook for around 2 minutes per side, until your desired level of doneness is reached.
  5. Remove from the skillet and repeat with the remaining oil and steak cubes.
  6. When all of the steak bites are cooked, give the sauce a whisk and pour about 1/3 of it into the skillet, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan as you do so.
  7. Return the steak bites to the pan, pour the remaining sauce over the top, and simmer for 1-2 minutes, until the steak is heated through and the sauce begins to thicken.
  8. Remove from heat and transfer to a serving platter.
  9. Garnish with sesame seeds and sliced green onions. Serve and enjoy!

Note: I found adding a little more honey to the mix makes the dish pop more. If you like it spicy, add about 1/2 tsp of crushed red pepper.
