1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 tablespoons toasted ground sesame seeds, divided
3 tablespoons sesame oil
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons minced green onion, divided
1 tablespoon chopped ginger
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
Thai sweet and spicy sauce
1. Combine the beef in a sealable plastic bag with the soy sauce, sugar, wine, 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, sesame oil, one-fourth cup green onion, the ginger and garlic. Close and shake the bag to evenly distribute the contents. Refrigerate overnight.
2. Heat a grill over high heat until hot. Remove the meat from the bag and discard the marinade. Grill the beef 1 1/2 to 2 minutes per side for medium-doneness, or to taste. Remove and allow to rest a few minutes.
3. Slice the beef crosswise into one-fourth- to one-half-inch strips. Plate each serving with a side of the dipping sauce, sprinkling additional green onions and toasted sesame seeds over the beef for garnish. Serve immediately.
