Instructions

Wafu Garlic Sauce

  1. Mix sake, mirin, dashi and shoyu in a sauce pan. Heat until just below boiling. Remove from heat.
  2. Add sesame oil, cilantro and garlic.
  3. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  4. Blend sauce and serve hot with steak.

Marinade

  1. Combine all marinade ingredients and mix well.
  2. Place steaks and marinade in a Zip Lock bag. Marinate steaks for one hour, turning every 15 minutes.

Steak Preparation

  1. Using a heavy bottomed skillet, heat oil on medium heat.
  2. Place potato starch in a medium size bowl. Remove steaks from the bag, and drain excess marinade. Dip both sides of steaks into the potato starch to coat well.
  3. Fry steaks one at a time until the coating gets crispy, 2-3 minutes on each side. Be sure to use medium heat, or the crust will burn before the steaks are done.
  4. Drain steaks on paper towels.
  5. Slice and serve with Wafu Garlic Sauce and sautéed shiitake mushroom and onions.

Notes

WAFU means prepared Japanese-style. The term often describes steak seasoned with shoyu, sake, mirin and garlic.
