    From the Test Kitchen

    A duo of irresistibly rich toppings elevate simply seared steaks with a delicious, Japanese-inspired twist: a drizzle of sweet soy glaze and a dollop of an umami-rich compound butter (simply butter mixed with savory miso paste). It’s all served with fluffy rice mixed with sautéed bok choy and carrots, plus a bit of sesame oil for a savory finish.

    Title
    • 4 Steaks
    • ¾ lb Carrots
    • 15 oz Baby Bok Choy
    • 3 Tbsps Soy Glaze
    • 1 Tbsp Sweet White Miso Paste
    • 2 Tbsps Butter
    • 1 Tbsp Sesame Oil

    • 1 cup Long Grain White Rice
    Cook the rice
    1 Cook the rice

    Remove the butter from the refrigerator to soften. Remove the miso paste from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. In a medium pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 2 cups of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 13 to 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork.

    2 Prepare the ingredients

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; roughly chop, separating the stems and leaves. Peel the carrots and thinly slice on an angle. In a bowl, combine the chopped bok choy stems and sliced carrots

    Cook the steaks
    3 Cook the steaks

    Pat the steaks dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on all sides. In a large pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned steaks. Cook, turning occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes for medium-rare, or until browned and cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board and let rest at least 5 minutes. 

    *An instant-read thermometer should register 145°F.

    While the steaks rest, to the pan of reserved fond, add the prepared bok choy stems and carrots; season with salt and pepper (if the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of olive oil). Cook on medium-high, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the chopped bok choy leaves. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until wilted. Add the vinegar (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently and scraping up any fond, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until the liquid has cooked off. Transfer to the pot of cooked rice. Add the sesame oil and stir to thoroughly combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    In a bowl, combine the softened butter and miso paste. Using a fork, mash until smooth. Find the lines of muscle (or grain) on the rested steaks; slice crosswise against the grain. Serve the sliced steaks with the finished rice. Top the steaks with the soy glaze and miso butter. Garnish with the togarashi. Enjoy!
