  • 3 tablespoons oyster sauce

  • 4 teaspoons minced gingerroot
  • 4 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 4 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar

In shallow bowl, whisk together oyster sauce, soy sauce, ginger, sugar, oil, hot pepper sauce and garlic. Reserve 1/3 cup (75 mL) to serve with steak. Add steak to remaining marinade, turning to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Cucumber Radish Pickle: In colander, toss cucumber, radishes and salt ; let stand for 15 minutes. Shake off liquid and pat dry; place in bowl. Add vinegar, sugar, sesame oil and hot pepper sauce; toss.
