  • In a mixing bowl combine soy sauce, water, garlic, honey, sesame seed oil, rice vinegar, lemon juice, onion mix, and cornstarch; whisk until thoroughly combined. Set aside.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon avocado oil in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat until hot.
  • Add 1/2 of the steak cubes to the hot oil and cook for 2 minutes per side, or until browned and done. Remove from skillet and repeat with the rest of the steak cubes, adding extra oil as needed.

  • Give the previously prepared honey garlic sauce a good stir with a whisk and pour 1/3 of the sauce into the hot skillet; scrape up the browned pieces from the bottom of the pan.
  • Add the steak bites back to the skillet and pour the rest of the sauce over the steak; cook for 1 to 2 more minutes, or until sauce starts to thicken.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Transfer steak bites to a plate.

  • Serve with tots, mash potatoes or rice. Also makes a great topping for a baked potato
