    • Paper towels
    • Large resealable plastic bag
    • Small saucepan
    • Small glass bowl
    • Charcoal or gas grill
    • Meat thermometer
    • Aluminum foil


    1. Trim steak, pat dry and place in a large resealable plastic bag. Combine 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar, canola oil, chili garlic sauce, 1 tablespoon sugar, soy sauce, and 2 cloves garlic; pour over steak. Seal bag; refrigerate for 2 to 8 hours.

    2. Combine remaining 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar, 2 cloves garlic, and 1 teaspoon sugar in a small saucepan; stir in water. Cook over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Cool slightly. Combine carrots, cucumber, and red onion in a small glass bowl; add vinegar mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or up to 3 days.

Place buns, cut sides down, on grill for 1 to 2 minutes or until toasted.
