Recipe Ingredients

3   New York strip steaks
3/4 cup 177mlSoy sauce
3/4 cup 177mlSake
1/2 cup 118mlMirin
2 cups 474mlDashi

Recipe Instructions

Mix together soy sauce, sake, mirin and dashi. (Sake and Mirin wines can be bought in most liquor stores. Dashi, a base for Japanese soup stock, is available in most Oriental stores.) Bring to boil. Add steak and return to boil. Cook 3 to 5 minutes. Be careful not to overcook the meat; it should be rare on the inside.

Remove steak, wrap in foil and refrigerate overnight.

Continue boiling, cooking until liquid has reduced to a thick sauce. You can tell when it is done, because the sauce makes large, slow bubbles when it is ready. Be careful; otherwise the sauce will burn. Refrigerate overnight.

To serve: Cut all fat from steaks. Slice in very thin slices. Arrange on a plate. Just before serving; pour 1 tsp. of reduced cooking sauce over meat. You can also garnish with a little chopped green onion. For an appetizer serving, allow 5 to 7 slices per person. Serves 6.
