Hoisin Beef with Aromatic Jasmine Rice

If your Christmas Day feast does not happen to end up like the one on "A Christmas Story" and you don't get to enjoy Chinese food from the only open restaurant because the dog ate the turkey you may, at some point, want to indulge by your own choice anyway. By making your favorite Chinese food at home, you can include your favorite ingredients, control the amount of heat, and I am certain it will be much healthier and equally delicious.   

Hoisin Beef
your choice of steak (flank, sirloin, filet, etc.)
1/4 soy sauce
2 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
bottle hoisin sauce

In a zip lock bag, combine soy sauce, rice vinegar, garlic and red pepper flakes.  Add the steak, turn to coat and marinate for 30 mins. to several hours.  Heat a heavy bottom skillet over medium high heat.  Lightly brush a the steak with hoisin sauce and pan sear for approximately 4 minutes per side for medium rare.  Let the meat rest for 10 minutes before slicing.  Thinly slice and serve with Jasmine rice.
