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
- 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
- Mix all ingredients (except for the steak) for the glaze in a pan. Bring to a boil and let cool.
- 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.
- 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.
- Remove steak from grill and let it cool for about 10 minutes.
- Serve with some glaze drizzled on top or to the side.
* 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!
