From our local/state Sunday paper. We love recipes that are in a chilli plum sauce - a bit of fire with sweetness yummmmm. Have not included 1 hour marinating time in the times.

  1. Combine the garlic, chilli, soyu sauce and plum sauce in a microwave safe jub.
  2. Place beef in a glass or ceramic dish and pour half the sauce mixture over beef and turn to coat and cover and refrigerate for 1 hour to marinate.

  4. Microwave remaining sauce on medium for 2 minutes or until heated through or alternatively you could heat in a small pot on medium heat on the stove top.
  5. Arrange beef on a platter and serve with remaining sauce.

We really liked this flavour; a nice change from what we normally have in our marinades. I had 500 g flank steak but kept the sauce proportions the same which meant that I almost doubled it, anything less would have been too little for us. I used 1/2 cup plum sauce and 1/4 sweet chili sauce and added 1 tsk chili flakes instead of fresh chili. I marinated as instructioned and did not need any oil to grill in my non-stick pan. Served with basmati rice and asparagus. Just a beautiful dinner. Thanks for sharing.

Russ was using the computer at a very critical time-I'd read the ingredients, assembled the sauce, SLICED the beef and marinated it before I realised I was supposed to cook it as a steak, rest it then slice it. Never mind, my way worked wonderfully and I'd do it that way again. I think this plum sauce would be good with chicken, pork, lamb or prawns. I used Huey's Asian Plum Sauce. I had around 300g steak for the two of us, but made all the sauce to go over the meat and udon noodles. I used about 1/4 of it for marinating the beef.
