Beef Steak in Japanese-Style Sauce

Beef Steak in Japanese-Style Sauce

A Japanese-style steak seasoned with garlic and soy sauce.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Beef Steak
(We use sirloin steak.)
Salt and pepper
to taste
Vegetable oil
as needed
2 cloves
2 tablespoons
Soy sauce
2 tablespoons


1. Remove your steak meat from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before cooking. Cut the garlic into slices.
2. Salt and pepper the meat right before cooking.
3. Heat the vegetable oil and the sliced garlic in a frying pan on medium heat. The scent of the garlic will transfer to the oil.
4. Once the garlic has lightly browned transfer it to a plate. It burns fairly quickly, so you'll have to watch it carefully!
5. Increase the heat to high, and once it's properly warmed cook the steak to your liking.
6. Once the steak has cooked to your liking, add the sake then the soy sauce in that order. Then add the garlic last and stop the heat.
7. Transfer the meat to a serving plate, then top with the sauce in the frying pan together with the garlic and it's complete.

Story Behind this Recipe

I learned this recipe from my mother. Until my husband ate this it seemed he felt like homemade steak wasn't so good. But now he loves it.
