Skirt steak is a flavorful cut but tends to be tough. In this miso-marinated steak recipe, sake acts as a tenderizer. To easily trim the fat, roll up steak jelly-roll fashion. Use a sharp knife to slice away the fat as you unroll the steak.
1 cup sake
1/4 cup chopped green onions
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons miso
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 (1-pound) skirt steak, trimmed
How to Make It
Combine first 7 ingredients in a blender; process 1 minute or until onions are finely chopped. Transfer sake mixture to a large zip-top plastic bag. Add steak to bag; seal. Marinate in refrigerator at least 2 and up to 8 hours, turning occasionally.
Remove steak from bag, reserving marinade. Pat steak dry with paper towels. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly spray both sides of steak with cooking spray. Add steak to pan; cook 1 minute on each side or until browned. Remove steak from pan; keep warm. Add reserved marinade to pan, and cook 4 minutes or until thick and deep brown in color, stirring constantly. Return steak to pan, turning to coat. Cook 2 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Let steak stand 5 minutes. Cut steak diagonally across grain into thin slices.
This was awesome! I marinated the steak for 3 days because dinner plans kept changing, I think that this probably only improved the flavor. It's a sweet dish, my fiancé said it reminded him of the "steak on a stick" that you'd get at a Chinese restaurant. I served it over a salad with garlic expressions dressing. I will absolutely make this again!!!!
I really enjoyed this steak! I have never cooked steak with miso before but I was pleasantly surprised how wonderful it was. I work with La Cense Beef which sells 100 percent grass fed beef. I used grass fed beef as I use for all <a href="http://www.lacensebeef.com/recipes-and-more/recipe-video-page.aspx">Beef Recipes</a>. I think that it provides really great flavor and it is so much healthier than grain fed beef. If you have yet to try it I would highly recommend it!
