For the marinade, mix together soy sauce, ginger, honey, sesame oil, and garlic in a small bowl.

Place steak and mushrooms in a rectangular baking dish. Drizzle marinade over steak and mushrooms. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Prepare grill (or use an indoor grill pan). Remove steak and mushrooms from marinade. Discard marinade.

Brush grill rack or grill pan lightly with oil and grill steak for 4 minutes on each side or until desired doneness. Remove steak from grill or pan and let rest, covered with foil, while you grill the mushrooms for 3 minutes on each side. Slice the steak thinly across the grain and slice the mushrooms into thick pieces. Arrange on plates and sprinkle with scallions, mint, and cilantro. Serve lime wedges on the side. Serves 4.
