To make steak, shrimp and vegetables

  1. First cut the steak in small but equal sized pieces and liberally sprinkle salt and pepper. 

  2. Add some butter to a hot pan and cook the meat for about 3 minutes. Don’t mix them, let them sear. Then flip and cook another 3 minutes.   Cut one open to see if it’s cooked.  After you cook the steak, take it out and let it rest.

  3. While the steak is cooking microwave your vegetables for 3 minutes.

  4. Add a bit more butter in the pan along with the vegetables and cook for 3 more minutes.

  5. Add in the shrimp and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Lastly add back the beef and sprinkle the sesame oil all over. Mix well and cook for a minute to infuse everything.

To make the Yum Yum Sauce

  1. Add the garlic to a food processor and pulse until well chopped. Add in the rest of the ingredients and process to mix well. Store in refrigerator until ready to use. Can make this ahead of time.

To make the Brown Ginger Sauce

  1. Add the onion and garlic to a food processor and pulse until well chopped. Add everything else to the bowl and mix to combine. Can also just do this by hand with out the food processor.  Store in refrigerator until ready to use. Can make this ahead of time.
