  1. Combine the oil, vinegar, soy sauce, Worcestershire, ketchup, mustard, garlic, pepper, oregano, and crushed red pepper flakes.
  2. Put the steak in a large food storage bag or nonreactive container and pour the marinade over it. Seal the bag and turn it several times to coat the meat; refrigerate the steak for 4 to 8 hours. Turn the steak frequently during its time in the refrigerator so the marinade covers it from all angles.
  3. Broil the steak about 2 to 3 inches from the heat source for about 6 to 9 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness of the cut and your desired doneness.
    Or grill the steak over medium coals or medium heat on a gas grill for about 5 to 10 minutes on each side or until it reaches your desired doneness.
  4. Remove the steak from the broiler and let it rest for 3 to 5 minutes before you slice it. Slice it thinly against the grain, Transfer to a heat-proof bowl.

Stir Fry Method:

  1. Add  oil to the pan, along with the carrot, capsicum and broccolini. Stir-fry for 3 - 4 minutes. Add onion and cook a further 2 - 3 minutes, until veggies are tender-crisp.
  2. Return beef to the pan, add oyster sauce and kecap manus, and toss to coat. 
  3. Serve stir fry over steamed rice, with spring onions and lemon wedges.


Allow the steak to marinate in the refrigerator for at least four hours in a sealed plastic food storage bag or any non-reactive container or bowl. Turn the steak frequently to keep it evenly coated.
