This is my poke inspired take on beef, for those of us who aren’t quite adjusted to raw fish 😅. If you love poke, but can’t eat it without repetitive trips to the bathroom then this recipe is for you. When I discovered ponzu sauce i became obsessed. The addition of sesame oil is absolutely heavenly with this dish and in my opinion tastes better than poke.
I have a very sensitive stomach, so raw fish makes the bathroom my best friend. In addition to this visual, ponzu tastes great with lots of things! I like to use it on my salads with a little bit of peanut powder and its oh so good.
You will notice that i tell you not to use the oil until the very end, and that’s because sesame oil has a very low smoking point. It gets bitter very quickly if it is contact with high heat. So please add it at the end.
Beef with ponzu sauce
• 1/2 lb. top sirloin beef thinly sliced
• 1/3 cup ponzu sauce
• 1 scallion, white part only thinly sliced
• 2 shiitake mushrooms, cubed
• 1/2 tbsp. Sesame oil
• green parts of scallion chopped
- Marinate beef in ponzu for 1 hour
- Heat pan but DO NOT add the oil just yet, add in white scallions and mushroom then reduce heat to medium high
- Wait a few moments then add in sesame oil allowing everything to cook for about a minute
- Once mushrooms and scallions begin to wilt a bit add in beef and let cook until there’s no more pink showing about 2 minutes then add in a pinch of sugar *don’t overcook your meat or else it will become too tough
- Remove from heat and garnish with green scallions
- Serve hot and enjoy!!!!
