Beef with Ponzu sauce

This is my poke inspired take on beef, for those of us who aren’t quite adjusted to raw fish πŸ˜…. 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.Β 

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.
