For the beef: Heat the grill to medium-high. Sprinkle steak with Native Texan BBQ Rub and grill to desired doneness. Remove steak and let rest for 5 min. Cut grilled steak, across the grain, into thin strips and set aside.

For the sauce: While steak cooks, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and saute for 2 to 3 min. Whisk together soy sauce, honey, cornstarch, ginger, Crushed Red Pepper Flakes, Minced Garlic, and a pinch of salt & pepper until thoroughly incorporated. Pour mixture over sauteed onions and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and whisk until the sauce has thickened, 1 to 2 min. Stir in grilled beef strips and remove from heat. Serve immediately, topped with scallions.
