A hint of nutmeg in the sauce reflects the French influence in Vietnamese cooking. Combining mint with cilantro adds a refreshing element to the mojo, a Caribbean condiment consisting of garlic, citrus juice, and oil. It would also be good with grilled or roasted lamb. Steamed green beans make a colorful side on the plate.
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons chopped peeled fresh ginger
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
1 tablespoon honey
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 garlic clove
1/2 cup cilantro leaves
1/2 cup mint leaves
3 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 garlic clove
2 portobello mushroom caps (about 4 ounces)
1 pound green beans, trimmed
1 (1-pound) boneless beef shoulder steak

To prepare mojo, combine cilantro and next 5 ingredients (through 1 garlic clove) in a food processor; process until smooth. Place in a small bowl.

Steam green beans 3 minutes or until tender; keep warm.

This recipe is amazing! I've used it as is, I've made it using tofu, and I've made it using wild alaskan salmon. EVERY time I've made it, I've gotten rave reviews. The sauce is stellar. The dark sesame oil really adds depth. The mojo takes it over the top. Definitely a keeper!
Don't be put off by the long list of ingredients, this is pretty simple to throw together in the minichop. Wish we had made with half mushroom/half beef, otherwise it was very good. Served with flat rice noodles.
I have made this recipe for family and friends on several occasions and everyone loves it. In addition to the green beans and mushrooms, I usually make rice to sop up the extra mojo-its so tasty I don't want to waste it.
