This is an adaptation of #98584 because my husband does not like cabbage and I had no dark sesame oil or green onions. I did have regular vegetable oil and sesame seeds. The serrano peppers add a bit of pepper heat, but not as hot as jalapeno. My husband loves warmed sweet and sour plum sauce on anything Asian -- and it is good with this.
- 8 ounces thin steak (or chicken breast or shrimp or pork)
- 2 teaspoons oil (divided)
- 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
- 1⁄2 large sweet onion (Texas 1015 or Vidalia, bite-sized chunks)
