Best Honoring my Ancestors

My first night home in Chicago was my parents' wedding anniversary. To honor them, I cooked a dinner. The dinner was Momofuku style flank steak. This is what the steak looked like after it cooked, I wish our grill was a little hotter so I could have gotten a bit more of a seer to the outside of the steak. Oh well. I marinated it in soy sauce, apple juice, garlic, onion, ginger, sugar, and maybe something else. Probably sesame oil.

This is what the full dinner looked like, I also grilled onions that sat in the same marinade, made a pepper and scallion and sesame oil sauce/salad for the steak AND in the back there you'll see brussel sprout-style cauliflower.

For the record, here's what the same meal looks like at Momofuku (but they give you kimchi):

And what it looks like in New York:
