3 clove garlic, chopped
2 teaspoon(s) fresh ground pepper

1. Cut the steak lengthwise in half, then thinly slice against the grain. Put in a bowl.
2. Toast the sesame seeds in a dry skilled, then crush using a mortar and pestle. Add to the beef.

4. Heat a large cast iron frying pan for several minutes on high. Add half of the beef and cook for 3-5 minutes, transfer to a warmed serving bowl and cook the remaining beef.

Tip - the beef is really tasty if you let it cook long enough for some of the sugar/soy to caramelize.
