    From the Test Kitchen

    To complement juicy seared steaks, you'll coat hearty mushrooms in tempura batter, which creates incredibly light, crispy texture when fried. It's all served with fresh cucumber marinated in citrusy ponzu, plus a bed of sushi rice mixed with aromatic ginger and scallions.

    Seared Steaks over Ginger Rice with Tempura Mushrooms & Gochujang Mayo
    Title
    • 2 Steaks
    • 2 tsps Gochujang
    • ½ cup Sushi Rice
    • 1 Piece Ginger
    • 1 Persian Cucumber
    • ½ lb Mushrooms
    • ¼ cup Tempura Mix
    • 1 Tbsp Vegetarian Ponzu Sauce
    • 2 Tbsps Mayonnaise
    • 1 Tbsp Togarashi Seasoning (Sweet Paprika, Hot Paprika, Dried Orange Peel, Poppy Seeds, White Sesame Seeds & Black Sesame Seeds)
    • 2 Scallions
    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the ginger; finely chop to get 2 teaspoons (you may have extra). Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Thinly slice the mushrooms. Halve the cucumber lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Place in a bowl; add the ponzu sauce. Season with salt and pepper and stir to coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. In a separate bowl, combine the mayonnaise and as much of the gochujang as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be; taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.  

    Make the ginger rice
    2 Make the ginger rice

    In a small pot, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped ginger and sliced white bottoms of the scallions. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened. Add the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 3/4 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 15 to 17 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork. Cover to keep warm.

    Cook the steaks
    4 Cook the steaks

    Meanwhile, pat the steaks dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on all sides. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned steaks. Cook, turning occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes for medium-rare (125°F), or until browned and cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Transfer to a cutting board; let rest at least 5 minutes. Wipe out the pan.

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 145°F for steak. Cook the steaks an additional 2 to 3 minutes to achieve this.

    Consuming raw or undercooked meat, poultry, fish, seafood or eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness. 

    Make the tempura mushrooms
    5 Make the tempura mushrooms

    In a large bowl, whisk together the tempura mix, half the togarashi, and ¼ cup of cold water. Season with salt and pepper. Add the sliced mushrooms; stir to thoroughly coat. In the same pan, heat a thin layer of oil on medium-high. Once the oil is hot enough that a coated mushroom sizzles immediately when added, carefully add the coated mushroom slices in an even layer (letting any excess drip off). Cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Turn off the heat. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and immediately season with salt and the remaining togarashi.

    Find the lines of muscle (or grain) on the rested steaks; slice crosswise against the grain. Serve the ginger rice topped with the sliced steaks, tempura mushrooms, and marinated cucumber (discarding any liquid). Drizzle with the gochujang mayo. Garnish with the sliced green tops of the scallions. Enjoy!
