Directions
Flank Steak:

Rub flank steak with spice blend. Let marinate for 1 hour or refrigerate overnight.

Preheat grill or broiler. Grill or broil steak on both sides for 6 minutes. Remove and allow to rest for 10 minutes.

Stir-Fry:

Cover the mushrooms with 1 cup warm water and soak for 20 minutes. Reserve the liquid, discard the stems, and slice the caps into strips.

Heat wok with 2 tablespoons oil. Stir-fry garlic ginger, onion and mushrooms for 1 minute, then add the remaining vegetables. Stir-fry for 4 to 5 minutes or until tender.

Add soy sauce, mushroom water, and cornstarch. Cook until slightly thickened. Drizzle with dark sesame oil, and season with salt.

To Plate:

Place Stir Fried Vegetables on platter. Thinly slice steak against the grain and fan over vegetables. Drizzle with Shiitake Barbecue Sauce.

Emeril's Asian Spice Blend:

In a small bowl, blend all the ingredients. Keep in an airtight container until ready to use.

Shiitake Barbecue Sauce:

Place a saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the oil and heat. When the oil is hot, add the mushrooms and saute until they begin to give up their liquid, about 4 minutes. Add the sesame oil, soy sauce, orange juice and zest and cook for 2 minutes.
