  5. And white parts of green onions to the pan and sauté for 2 minutes. Add green ends to pan and sauté for a minute more. Remove from pan with slotted spoon and set aside with steak. Or, if diced, sauté white and green parts together for 3-4 minutes.

  2. Melt coconut oil with toasted sesame oil in a pan on medium stove heat.
