Gyû Tataki

This is very tender, semi-cooked beef, halfway between carpaccio and roast beef, with a typical Japanese sauce. It’s one of our family’s favorite dishes.
It’s simple to do and success is guaranteed!

Ingredients: for 4-5 people

- 500g of Beef
(more precisely “pear” or “rump steak”! You will find it at any good butcher. Be careful, it is very important to have very tender pieces)
- Pepper
- Salad, nori seaweed, chives, etc. for decoration

Sauce Marinarde :

- 6 cl of soy sauce
- 6 cl of vinegar
- 1 C. teaspoon of lemon juice
- 1 C. teaspoon Kombu dashi powder* (You will find it in Japanese grocery stores.)
- 1 crushed garlic

Preparation : Prepare half a day before the tasting!

Remove the meat from the refrigerator 30 minutes before preparation.

In a small saucepan, heat all the ingredients for the marinade sauce until just before boiling and add 1 crushed garlic at the end. Let cool.

In a salad bowl, prepare iced water (for the meat)

First cut the meat in half lengthwise if necessary (the aim will be to end up with slices approximately 8 cm long) and season with pepper.

In a pan, heat a little oil. Brown them on each side over high heat.

Dip the pieces of meat in ice water to stop the cooking.

Pour the marinade sauce into a plastic ziplock bag and place the meat, dried well with absorbent paper.
Leave them to marinate for 5 hours in the refrigerator.

Before tasting, cut the cooled meat into thin slices
Place the salad and add the meats.
Decorate the plate as you wish.

Enjoy your food !!
