Heat oil in a pan and add the garlic. When it's fragrant, add the beef.
When the meat changes color, add the butter and mix together. Add the soy sauce and mirin, and season with salt and pepper.
Saute with enoki and shiitake mushrooms. Mushrooms go perfectly well with this dish.
Story Behind this Recipe
My husband loved it when I made steak flavored with garlic, butter, and soy sauce, so I started making a before-payday version using inexpensive thinly cut meat.
This is great with shimeji mushrooms or spinach. I buy beef when it's on sale, and make this recipe when I don't have time. I used brisket offcuts this time, but I think it's good made with other cuts of beef. It's best to use a cut with some fat.
