I'm hoping this is like what is served at one of our favorite restaurants. I found this on the allrecipes site, it was posted by NELLC.

Very good. I used extra-virgin olive oil and added some sesame oil to enhance the sesame flavor. It was to our desired tenderness after 5 minutes. Threw in some minced garlic because we love garlic! Thanks for posting.
