I love steak. Places like Fogo de Chao are just meant for people like me: total and complete carnivores. Having said that, I usually don’t try to cook steak at home. It’s partly fear that it’ll taste funny or I’ll over or under cook it. But when I happened upon this recipe, I realized that not only had I not had steak in a while but also that I had most of the ingredients, I knew twas meant to be!

Ah, a medium rare steak. Just how I like it!

Flank Steak with Ponzu and Miso Butter

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs flank steak cut into 4 pieces *
  • 1 tbsp Ponzu
  • 2 tbsp Mirin
  • 3 tbsp Shiro miso (or white miso)
  • 4 tbsp butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp Japanese cooking sake
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 3 dashes black pepper

Directions:

  1. Mix all ingredients (except for the steak) for the glaze in a pan. Bring to a boil and let cool.
  2. In a plastic bag, marinate the steaks with 1/2 of the glaze for 1 hr. Heat grill over medium to medium-high heat. Scrape off any glaze on the steak, then add to pan.
  3. Grill for 3-4 minutes per side then flip over carefully, letting it grill on the other side for another 3-4 minutes**. Brush on some glaze and let grill again for 1 min per side.
  4. Remove steak from grill and let it cool for about 10 minutes.
  5. Serve with some glaze drizzled on top or to the side.

Notes:

* I only got a lb of flank steak and divided that into four smaller steaks.

** let it grill for about 4-5 minutes to get the steak somewhere between medium-rare to medium.

All in all, delicious! The steak was flavorful and cooked just perfectly. I ate this with some brown rice and veggies but I think this steak would also taste great with a salad. I think I just found my go-to steak recipe!
