3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce 
2 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar 
3 cloves garlic, minced 
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger 
5 teaspoons sesame oil, divided 
2 hanger steaks, each about 1 pound 
3 red bell peppers, cored, seeded and cut into thick wedges 
12 large white mushrooms 
2 bunches green onions, white and light green parts 
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt 
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper 


In a large bowl, combine soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, ginger and 2 teaspoons sesame oil. Add steaks and marinate at least 2 hours or overnight. 

Prepare a grill for high-heat cooking. Place bell peppers, mushrooms and green onions in a large bowl and toss with salt, pepper and remaining 3 teaspoons sesame oil. Remove steaks from marinade; grill to desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Let steak rest on a cutting board 10 minutes. 

Meanwhile, grill vegetables, turning them frequently, until nicely browned, about 5 minutes for green onions, 7 to 8 minutes for bell peppers and mushrooms. Slice steak thinly against the grain; serve with the vegetables.
