1) Trim off any visible fat from steak. Cut the steak in quarters and then slice across the grain in thin diagonal strips.
2) In a medium bowl combine all marinade ingredients.
3) Place the steak strips to marinade, tossing to coat all pieces thoroughly.
4) Cover with a foil and place inside refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
5) Use skewers to thread the marinated strips.

6) Place inside broiler to broil about 2 minutes on each side.
7) Brush with more marinade if needed.

8) Serve the strips with salad.

If you prefer, stir-fry rather than broil.
