4 servings (serving size: 3 ounces steak, 3 mushroom slices, 1 cup green beans, and about 1 tablespoon mojo)

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.

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare sauce, combine first 8 ingredients in a food processor; process until smooth. Place in a small bowl.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

Remove brown gills from the undersides of portobello mushrooms using a spoon; discard gills. Cut each mushroom into 6 slices; set aside.

Step 4

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

Step 5

Heat a nonstick grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add steak; cook 2 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove from pan; cut steak diagonally across grain into thin slices. Toss mushrooms with half of soy mixture; add to pan. Stir-fry 1 minute; remove from pan. Return steak to pan; cook 2 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Drizzle steak with remaining soy mixture. Arrange steak, mushrooms, and green beans on serving plates. Serve with mojo.

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.

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!

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.
