Sweet & Spicy Steak Stuffed Mushrooms

I came up with this one as a last minute appetizer idea, but it turned out really well, so I thought I'd share it!

1 pound skirt or flank steak
1 pound large mushrooms, rinsed
4 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 cup soy sauce
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup lime juice
1/4 cup thai chili garlic sauce (add less or more, depending on how spicy you like it!)
1/2 tsp black pepper
Olive oil or butter, for sauteeing mushrooms

Garnish:  Cilantro (optional)

Preheat grill to high.  Mix all sauce ingredients together.  Reserve about 1/2 cup of the sauce for later.

Pour sauce over steak and allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes.  When ready to grill, remove steak from sauce and pat dry with paper towels (you won't get a good char on it if it's wet).  Grill the steak for about 3-4 minutes per side for medium rare.  Remove and let rest for 5-10 minutes.

While the steak is resting, remove stems from mushrooms.  If desired, you can chop those up and add to the steak mixture later, or you can just discard.  Saute mushrooms in a little bit of olive oil or butter.  Season with salt and pepper.  Remove from pan and flip upside down on paper towels to drain.

Dice steak into small pieces and mix with reserved sauce.  Stuff each mushroom with the mixture and garnish with cilantro.  If the meat and/or mushrooms have grown cold while doing this, simply pop them into the oven for 5 minutes or so, then serve!  These can also be made in advance and heated in the oven just before serving.
