What you will need:

–   3 large egg yolks at room temperature
–   2 Tbsp white wine vinegar
–   2 Tbsp honey
–   1 tsp salt
–   1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
–   1 3/4 cups light olive oil

 

What you will need to do:

1.   In the bowl beat the egg yolks until they are thick and sticky.

2.   Add the vinegar, honey, salt and mustard.  Continue to beat for about a minute.

3.  Very slowly add the oil while continuing to mix.  Be patient on this step to get the best tasting Miracle Whip.  It’s best to add only 1 Tbsp at a time.

– 1 minced clove garlic
– 1 lb. beef flank steak

5. Set your oven to broil and broil for 5-6 minutes.
6. While you’re waiting, mix the chili sauce and remaining dressing together which can be brushed on the meat right before you’re ready to serve. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and onions and enjoy!
