Remind Me & Red Miso Marinated Steak

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine’s Day

Losing you

Reminds me

Don’t wait

For a holiday

To tell someone

You love them

I love you always and forever

I love you always and forever

I will also remind you that you don’t need one more chocolate recipe this week. The truth is what your Valentine really wants is a delicious “sizzling hot” steak. Nothing says, “I love you” like a juicy piece of beef with beautiful grill marks. A porterhouse is the perfect steak for sharing with your sweetheart. It includes both a large t-bone (for him) and a smaller tenderloin filet(for her)…at least that’s how we do it.

You will find red miso paste in the refrigerated section of your local Asian market or Whole Foods store. The miso penetrates the meat and gives it that luxurious “aged” quality usually found in high end steak houses. Hope you love it! It sure beats chocolate.

Red Miso Marinated Steak

¼ cup red miso paste

¼ cup mirin

3 tablespoons sake or dry sherry

2 tablespoons coconut sugar or brown sugar

2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon grated ginger

1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

¼ teaspoon black pepper

Porterhouse steak is my favorite but any steak will work

Place steaks in a zippered plastic bag. In bowl, whisk miso, mirin, sugar, sake, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, sesame oil and pepper; pour the marinade over steaks. Seal bag and marinate steak at room temperature for 30 minutes or as long as 2 days in the refrigerator. Remove steaks from marinade; blot dry with paper towels. Grill or broil, turning, to desired doneness.

  1. That last picture of the steak looks sooooo good. A heart cooling reality in my house is everyone besides me prefers beef cooked well done and won’t eat it otherwise. “Well done,” as you know, is code for shoe leather. So I refrain from spending on such a beautiful cut since it can’t truly be appreciated in my household. Only in restaurants do I get a treat like that.

  2. Another touching, well-written, and delicious post. I so appreciate reading anything you write.

  3. Beautiful photos of your children
    And that steak is So delicious looking…I will save it for when the 8 foot high snow bank in front of the patio melts…our formerly snowless winter has turned our backyard into the North Pole
