Maybe I'll try it one weekend when she won't be around.

How many tablespoons of sesame oil? i can eyeball the rest.

can i use rice wine vineger instead of wine?

I grill the flank steak. It's only about 3/4 of an inch thick so it cooks quickly. You can't cook it past medium. You MUST slice it across the grain to make it chewable.

A tablespoon of sesame oil is plenty. You can use rice wine vinegar. It won't taste the same but can still be good.

YOU REALLY DON'T TASTE THE VODKA, THE TWO COMBINED HAVE
A DIFFERENT FLAVOR. YOUR DAUGHTER MAY LIKE IT, MY KIDS DO
BUT THEN AGAIN THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS IN THE MARINADE.

You can get the same result from broiling it. Just make sure not to overcook it or it will be very very tough.

MLB:

In addition to broiling it as GB suggested, you can pan sear it. No need to finish in the oven, by the time both sides are seared the center will be rare to Med Rare.

I marinade all my steaks. I like the flavor it brings to it. It's no different than people who insist on dipping sauces or steak sauces.

I tried that trick once with wine and she swore she could smell it and wouldn't eat the steak. Not too bad of a tragedy, I got her piece too.
