Fukushima Beef Steak

This is a delicious way of preparing beef steak -- my father used to cook it this way for anniversaries and big family events.

Beef Steak
Beef tallow
1 large piece
3 pinches
☆Soy sauce
3 tablespoons
3 tablespoons
1 tablespoon
☆Coarsely ground black pepper
1 tablespoon
Red leaf lettuce
3 leaves


1. Cut notches into the tendons on each side.
2. Season both sides lightly with salt.
3. Melt the beef tallow in the frying pan on a high heat.
4. Pan-fry the meat in one go over high heat. Place the meat in the pan and then flip over after one minute.
5. Pan-fry the other side for one minute as well, then remove from the frying pan.
6. Garnish a plate with red-leaf lettuce. Slice the beef with diagonal cuts and arrange on the plate.
7. Reheat the frying pan. Add the ☆ ingredients and cook until the mixture thickens. Now you have a sauce.
8. Pour the sauce from Step 7 over the steak, and it'll be ready to eat!

Story Behind this Recipe

A long time ago, whenever something big happened, my father would say "Today is beef steak day" and make this recipe. The secret to this recipe is the pepper.
In the past, restaurants here used to have "beefsteak" written on their menus... I wonder if any of them still do?
