Miso steak

Japanese-style seared steak with sticky sushi rice serves 2


  • 2 lean steaks
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp miso paste
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp sugar, 1 tsp salt
  • Spinach salad with spring onions, radishes, cucumber and sesame seeds
  • 2 portions of sticky sushi rice
  • 2 tbsp rice wine vinegar


  1. Start by marinating the steak. Crush the garlic and mix together the soy sauce, miso paste and sugar. Using a spoon, rub this paste onto the steaks. Put the steaks into a sealable food bag and leave to marinate for at least two hours.
  2. While this is marinating, cook the sushi rice. Coat this in rice wine vinegar and leave to the side.
  3. Make a simple salad consisting of sliced spring onions, radishes and cucumber. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  4. Heat a non-stick frying pan until very hot. Sear the steak for 3-5 minutes on each side (depending on how you prefer the meat cooked). Set aside to cool a little, then carve the steaks into thick slices. Serve with the salad and sushi rice.

  1. THIS WAS COOKED PERSONALLY FOR ME BY RACHEL! I WAS THE TEST SUBJECT! The miso marinade is actually magic though, makes such tender steak.
