  • Mix soy sauce, 6 tablespoons of the lime juice, brown sugar, fish sauce, chilies, garlic powder and ginger in small bowl. Reserve 3 tablespoons of the marinade for brushing steak during grilling.

  • Remove another 3 tablespoons of the marinade into another small bowl. Add peanut butter, water and remaining 1 tablespoon lime juice; mix well. Set peanut sauce aside until ready to serve.

  • Place steak in large resealable plastic bag or glass dish. Add remaining marinade; turn to coat well. Refrigerate 30 minutes or longer for extra flavor. Remove steak from marinade. Discard any remaining marinade.

  • Grill steak over medium-high heat 6 to 8 minutes per side or until desired doneness, brushing with reserved marinade halfway through cooking. Slice steak and serve with Savory Peanut Sauce.

Cooking tip

Thai bird’s eye chilies are small hot chilies commonly found in Southeast Asia. If unavailable, substitute with chilies de arból or fresh cayenne peppers.
