Beef Tataki

This is my version of this easy but yet very delicious popular Japanese dish. It makes a great appetizer. Serve it with crab chips or a salad.


What you need:

2 pound rib eye or fillet beef  ( it should be at room temperature)

2 tbsp peanut oil

sea salt

3 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp rice wine vinegar

1 tbsp lime juice

1 large garlic, pressed

2 tbsp sesame oil

1 tbsp freshly grated ginger

4 tbsp freshly chopped coriander

chilli powder to sprinkle

1/2 tbsp brown sugar

1/2 red onion, finely sliced


Preheat a frying pan on very high heat (close to smoking point). Season the beef on all sides with the sea salt. Add the peanut oil and 1 tbsp sesame oil to the pan. Sear the beef over high heat, about 3 to 4 minutes per side (make sure to keep the center rare). Let the beef rest for 10 minutes, then slice  the meat with a sharp knife very thin and arrange it on to a large platter. Mix all other ingredients together in to a bowl, mix until all is well combined. Pour the marinade over the beef. Sprinkle some chilli  powder over the beef, and serve.


Enjoy 🙂
