Never tried flank steak like that, I only know to cut it into strips. Looks mouth watering. I'll have to learn to make shitake mushrooms too. It looks like a nice compliment to the steak.

I'm just having my leftover Sweet 'n Sour Pork I made last night. Next batch I'm going to look into how to fry the pork strips in batter so they have a breaded texture.

What a gorgeous picture. I love steak and mushrooms but for some reason those greens have my mouth watering. What are those greens called Rock? I need me some.

This is clean out the fridge for dinner night.

Those geens are called yu choy. Any Chinese grocer and even Walmart. They are easy to do up with a bit of garlic, chicken stock, or oyster sauce. Cut the leafy tops off, blanch the thicker stems for a few minutes until tender crisp and then throw in the leafy greens to finish off. My favorite greens.

Beautiful dinner, Rock, I'll have to look for yu choy.

We're still working the leftovers here.

Kind of a late dinner tonight. I made chicken on the grill, accompanied with refried black beans and this wonderful guajillo chile sauce.

That flank steak is perfectly cooked! The greens look yummy as well.

I had a hankerin' for a pastrami sandwich, so I got a few slices today from the grocery store deli. With some nice rye, dill pickle slices and mustard, it fulfilled my craving. Should have gotten more pastrami.

Thanks everybody. Here is the recipe I got my inspiration from. I googled flank steak and shitake mushrooms and this was one of the links that came up. Luckily, I had the ingredients and didn't follow the recipe amounts( I never do). Then, I just added the greens as the veg portion...Flank steak with shiitake mushrooms & hoisin sauce | Metro
