INGREDIENTS

  • 750g beef eye fillet
  • 15g shichimi (Japanese spice mix)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
Pickled Ginger Brown Butter
  • 70g butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 60ml sake
  • 40ml mirin
  • 125g butter, extra
  • 30g pickled ginger, roughly chopped
  • salt and pepper, to taste
For Serving
  • finger eggplants, sliced and steamed
  • sushi rice, steamed
  • shredded nori and sesame seeds, to garnish rice

METHOD

  1. Tightly roll beef in plastic wrap and chill until firm. Unwrap and sprinkle with shichimi. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat and sear beef all over until well browned. Transfer to an oven tray and bake at 180°C for 15-20 minutes or until cooked as desired. Rest in a warm place for 10 minutes before slicing.
  2. Meanwhile, melt butter in a small frying pan over low-medium heat. Add garlic and cook gently for 1-2 minutes or until fragrant and translucent. Pour in sake and mirin; reduce by half.
  3. Add extra butter and stir until melted, reduce heat to medium-low and continue to cook until the butter turns a dark golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in pickled ginger. Season to taste.
  4. Serve with sliced beef and eggplant drizzled with ginger butter and top rice with sesame seeds and nori.
