Nutrient-rich Chinese black rice teams with protein-rich Top Sirloin Steak in this spiced-up take on steak and vegetables, featuring a bold Asian marinade and dressing.


  • 1 beef Top Sirloin Steak Boneless, cut 1 inch thick (about 1 pound)
Marinade & Dressing:
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce plus additional for serving (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon mirin (rice wine)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon five spice powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 cups cooked Chinese black rice
  • 3/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 3/4 cup frozen shelled edamame, thawed
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 1/4 cups toasted sliced almonds
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint


  1. Combine Marinade & Dressing ingredients in medium bowl. Place beef Steak and 1/3 cup marinade in food-safe plastic bag; turn steak to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 15 minutes to 2 hours, turning occasionally. Reserve remaining marinade for dressing.
