Step by Step Method

Step 1

In a bowl, combine the sliced skirt steak with 1 teaspoon of toasted sesame oil, 1 teaspoon of soy sauce, and 1 teaspoon of kosher salt.

Step 2

Mix well to coat the steak evenly with the marinade.

Step 3

Allow the steak to marinate for about 15-20 minutes at room temperature.

Step 4

While the steak is marinating, heat a large skillet or wok over medium heat and add the vegetable oil.

Step 5

Add the sliced sweet onion rounds and a pinch of salt.

Step 6

Cook the onions, stirring occasionally, until they become soft and caramelized, about 15-20 minutes.

Step 7

Remove the caramelized onions from the skillet and set them aside.

Step 8

After marinating, heat the same skillet or wok over high heat until it's smoking hot.

Step 9

Add the marinated skirt steak slices in a single layer (you might need to do this in batches to avoid overcrowding).

Step 10

Let the steak sear undisturbed for about 1-2 minutes until it develops a nice crust.

Step 11

Flip the steak slices and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until they're cooked to your desired level of doneness.

Step 12

Season the cooked steak with freshly ground black pepper and remove them from the skillet.

Step 13

Return the caramelized onions to the skillet and add the sliced crystallized ginger.

Step 14

Stir-fry the onions and ginger for about 1 minute to combine the flavors.

Step 15

Push the onion-ginger mixture to the side of the skillet and add the unsalted butter to the empty space.

Step 16

Once the butter is melted and foamy, pour in 1 tablespoon of soy sauce and 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice. Mix everything together.

Step 17

Add the cooked skirt steak slices back into the skillet with the onion-ginger mixture.

Step 18

Toss everything together in the skillet for another minute to coat the steak with the flavors.

Step 19

Add the sliced green onions and sesame seeds to the skillet and give everything a final toss.

Step 20

Serve the sesame-ginger skirt steak stir-fry over cooked rice.
