Teriyaki Steak

We tried two versions of Teriyaki Steak side-by-side to experiment with different marinades. We used a bottled teriyaki marinade dressed-up with 1 minced garlic clove and 1 Tbsp. minced fresh ginger. The second marinade is a homemade version of teriyaki, ingredients below, and is significantly better than the bottled marinade.

Servings: 4

2 lbs. sirloin steak, 4 steaks approximately 1-inch thick
4 cloves garlic
3-inch long fresh ginger root

2/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup rice vinegar
1/3 cup mirin wine
1/3 cup sake, or substitute with dry vermouth

Make marinade
Minced garlic and place in a large glass dish with a cover. Peel and mince ginger root and add to garlic. Add all remaining ingredients except the steak. Cover dish tightly and shake to combine.

Marinate steak
Add steak to marinade, cover, and shake to coat steaks with marinade. Marinate for at least  24 hours, turning steaks at least once.

Cook steak
Grill or broil steaks to desired doneness, approximately 3 minutes on each side for medium-rare.

Let steaks rest for 3 to 4 minutes before serving.
