When it comes to cooking at home, it’s something I try to do as regularly as possible. I’m not a bad cook, but I do have a tendency to circle through a handful of ‘old faithful’ recipes, which although delicious, can get a bit repetitive. So, when the opportunity came up to learn how to create a brand new dish with M&S, I absolutely jumped at the chance!
Since we’re in the midst of summer, I thought it would be fun to try a dish which would pair well with a crunchy salad. M&S have developed a whole range of fabulous summer recipes, but I picked Japanese Sirloin Steaks – I’ve never been one to pass over wasabi.
It was also a great chance to enjoy a great steak – M&S is the only national retailer which can trace 100% of its beef back to the farm and individual cow. As a guilty carnivore, their dedication to humane and responsibility farming means I can enjoy my meal even more!
The recipe was super easy to follow, and all the ingredients are available in bigger M&S stores – so grabbing them in one shop couldn’t be simpler! And the result? A supper which was relished outside, and the recipe has firmly joined the ranks of my most loved!
I’ve included the recipe below so you can try it for yourself!
INGREDIENTS – SERVES 2
- 5 Pak choi leaves
- 0.5 limes
- 2 tsp wasabi peas
- 5 tbsp mayonnaise (Kewpie mayonnaise is best)
- 3 tbsp Japanese steak sauce (Hibachi is best)
- 1 red chilli 1 pack Baby Pak choi
- 1 tsp Japanese chilli powder
- 1 sirloin steak
- 2 tsp wasabi paste
Halve the Baby Pak choi. Slice the red chillis. Juice the limes.
- Crush wasabi peas in a pestle and mortar.
- Dust the steak with the chilli powder and set aside
- Stir the wasabi paste and lime juice into the mayonnaise and set aside in a service bowl
- Heat a frying pan over a high heat and brush the steak with a little oil
- Cook the steak to liking then remove and rest. Add the pak choi to the pan to gain a little colour, deglaze with the steak sauce, and drop in the chilli.
- Arrange the pak choi leaves on a long wooden board. Slice the beef then arrange the beef and baby pak choi on the board all with a nice drizzle of the glaze covering them.
- Serve with the wasabi mayonnaise and a sprinkle of the crushed wasabi peas.
