From the Test Kitchen

This hearty steak dish gets a few unique twists from a mix of Japanese and Korean cuisine staples: we're coating the steak with savory soy sauce before searing, then serving it alongside ponzu-dressed bok choy and crispy potato cakes—packed with scallions, melty cheese, and togarashi, then drizzled with a spicy gochujang mayo.

Pat the steak dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. Place in a bowl; add the soy sauce and turn to coat. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned steak. Cook 3 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare, or until cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board.
