This was a very good. We all liked it. The flavor was a little milder than we expected, but it was very tasty. It was reminiscent of some Korean marinades I've used, but without the chilis and with olive oil instead of sesame oil. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Barb!

The only thing I left out were the sesame seeds, didn't have any. I only marinated it 4 hours and it was still wonderful. BBQ'd it 6 mins. per side and it was just right for us med-rare.
