  • Excellent and simple, delicious and not overpowering. I don't use Pam spray, so instead, I dipped the steaks in lemon juice before putting them into the sesame seeds.
    I'll definitely make this again!

  • Wow this was good, and with only three ingedients. I didn't know whether to use dark or light sesame oil. I went with the dark and it worked. - 3/15/10
