Method

  1. Tip the miso paste, Sherry or sake, sugar and garlic into a sealable food bag. Season with a generous grinding of black pepper, then squash it all together until completely mixed. Add the steak, gently massage the marinade into the steak until completely coated, then seal the bag. Pop the bag into the fridge and leave for at least 1 hr, but up to 2 days is fine.
  2. To cook, heat a heavy-based frying pan, griddle pan or barbecue until very hot. Wipe the excess marinade off the steak, then sear for 3 mins on each side for medium-rare or a few mins longer if you prefer the meat more cooked. Set aside for 1 min to rest. Carve the beef into thick slices and serve with a crunchy salad made with the spinach, cucumber, celery, radish and sesame seeds.

Used yeast extract instead of miso paste and marinated for 24 hours. Really quick to get on the plate and like the sesame seeds...

Marinated for about 4 hours, the flavour imparted to the steaks are wonderful and there's an added bonus that it seems to really tenderise the steak too.

One word of caution though - remember to season the steak well with salt & pepper after removing the marinade and before frying it.

Wasn't impressed. Marinated it for 1 day and I didn't find it flavorsome at all and really not worth the nice cut of meat I got for it. Will not be repeating

Marinated for about 4 hours and it ended up being the most delicious meal. My friends were extremely impressed and given the ease in which this can be put together, it is certainly a firm dinner party fave for me now! lovely recipe and we are having it again tonight after only cooking it for the first time at the weekend!

This was yummy. I was cooking it for three and therefore multiplied the marinade by 1.5, which was not necessary as there was far too much! I couldn't be bother to slice the steaks so served them as they were with the suggested salad and new potatoes and a couple of lovely bottles of Argentinian Malbec!!
