Mix hoisin, water, tomato or honey, vinegar, sesame oil, pepper flakes and sesame seeds into a bowl. Set aside

7. On a side dish, brush sauce mixture onto both sides of the steaks. Divide the asparagus and scallions into equal bundles.Roll steaks over the bundles and thread a skewer through the roll to hold everything together
