Japanese-style Beef Steak

Japanese-style Beef Steak

This fragrant beef steak recipe uses a thick iron pan (skillet) and contains the mouth watering aromas of butter, soy sauce, and shiso leaves.

Ingredients: 1 serving

Beef steak
Beef tallow
1 piece
1 tablespoon
Shiso leaves
3 (finely chopped)
Soy sauce
2 tablespoons
2 tablespoons
1/4 block
Blanched nanohana
as needed
Shimeji mushrooms
as needed


1. Pick and cut away the sinews of the meat with the tip of your knife. Place the skillet on the heat and melt the beef tallow until it starts to smoke. Put the meat in the pan and cook on high heat until both sides have browned. Then add the butter and tofu.
2. Once the butter has started too melt, pour in the cooking sake, soy sauce, and finely chopped shiso leaves. Once the flavours of these seasonings have mixed well with the meat, take the meat out of the pan. Add the eggplant to the pan in it's place and while that's cooking, cut the meat into bite sizes.
3. Once the eggplant is cooked, chuck the meat back in along with the nanohana, and mix with the rest of the ingredients to complete.
