Rare Beef with Condiments
- 1 kg fillet of beef, or other lean cut beef
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- Salt and pepper, or Japanese spice rub
- 1 daikon radish, finely grated
- ¼ cup pickled ginger
- 12 chives finely chopped
- You will also need: Ponzu sauce, wasabi and some julienned vegetables of your choice
Sear the meat in very hot pan for 3 minutes either side. When cool, wrap in cling film and refrigerate.
Combine the daikon radish, ginger and chives, set aside till ready to serve.
Place your ‘julienned vegetables’ in a bowl with 2 tablespoons of rice wine vinegar and 1 tablespoon of caster sugar.
On each plate, place four slices of the rare beef, a little ramekin of ponzu sauce, a little pile of pickled vegetables, a small dollop of wasabi and a pile of the radish and ginger salad.
For my pickled vegetables, I like to use carrots, capsicum, spring inion and cucumber.
