5. Prepare the grill.

6. Soak 20 to 24 wooden skewers in water to prevent them from burning up on the grill.

7. Remove the sirloin strips from the marinade.

8. On each skewer, thread a slice of meat and pull them down so they lie flat.

9. Grease the grill lightly with a little sesame oil.


10. On the hot, greased grill, place the skewers and grill for 1 to 2 minutes per side so they are cooked on the outside but still rare or medium-rare inside.


11. Over a bed of hot rice, serve 1 steak over the top.

12. Sprinkle the reserved toasted sesame seeds over the skewers.

13. In small bowls, serve the garnishing ingredients along with the lettuce leaf.
