Grilled Red Miso Steak
For a holiday
To tell someone
You love them
I will also remind you that you don’t need one more chocolate recipe this week. The truth is what your Valentine really wants is a delicious “sizzling hot” grilled red miso marinated steak. Nothing says, “I love you” like a juicy piece of beef with beautiful grill marks. A porterhouse is the perfect steak for sharing with your sweetheart. It includes both a large t-bone (for him) and a smaller tenderloin filet(for her)…at least that’s how we do it.
You will find red miso paste in the refrigerated section of your local Asian market or Whole Foods store. The miso penetrates the meat and gives it that luxurious “aged” quality usually found in high end steak houses. Hope you love it! It sure beats chocolate.Print
¼ cup red miso paste
¼ cup mirin
3 tablespoons sake or dry sherry
2 tablespoons coconut sugar or brown sugar
2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon grated ginger
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
¼ teaspoon black pepper
Porterhouse steak is my favorite but any steak will work
- Place steaks in a zippered plastic bag.
- In bowl, whisk miso, mirin, sugar, sake, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, sesame oil and pepper; pour the marinade over steaks. Seal bag and marinate steak at room temperature for 30 minutes or as long as 2 days in the refrigerator.
- Remove steaks from marinade; blot dry with paper towels. Grill or broil, turning, to desired doneness.
I like to also sous vide my steaks at 134F. for 2 hours and then sear on the grill
