Butter the tray with vegetable oil and remove the steak from the marinade and start grilling. Turn the steak through half way cooking for 10-12 minutes giving 5-6 minutes for each side so it becomes grilled completely and soft from inside. If you don’t have a griller you can also broil it in the oven for about 12-15minutes. After grilling remove it and keep it aside on a cutting board, cover up loosely with a foil wrap and let it rest for a few minutes. While the steak rests, toss a bit of scallion in a pan and prepare tacos to be served with them. In a bowl, mix together chopped cabbage, carrots, onions and maybe, a bit of cilantro too. Now grill the tacos but just for a minute or two till they are a bit warmed and transfer it to the bowl and cover them to keep warm or you can also fry them but just at a very low flame.

Now slide the steaks against the grain, down the center and you will have two halves and toss with all the collected juices. Now serve the scallion tacos with grilled steak and the dish is ready to get into your taste buds! For more flavors, you can also make a sesame chili sauce.
