To assemble the bowls:
- Cooked rice (or other grain of choice--quinoa, couscous, or farro would all work great)
- A couple handfuls of bok choy or any leafy vegetable of choice (you can do this cooked or raw!)
- 1 pound steak (ribeye, sirloin, and skirt steak all work well)
- 2 tablespoons butter or oil
- 1 teaspoon dark soy sauce
- Salt to taste
First, make the dressing by combining all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth and creamy.
Before you cook the beef, prepare your grains and veggies. The beef cooks quickly, so you’ll want everything ready to go. If you’d prefer to have raw veggies, this step is easy. If you’re cooking the veggies, I cooked mine in the pan drippings from the steak––no additional seasoning required!
Season the steak with a small pinch of salt and plenty of black pepper. The miso dressing is quite salty, and we’ll be using soy sauce, so use your judgment per your tastes.
Next, heat a skillet over medium-high to high heat. Add 2 tablespoons butter to the skillet
Next, turn on your ventilation fan; you'll need it! Brown the butter slightly (this will happen without a problem if your pan is as hot as it should be) and add 1 teaspoon dark soy sauce.
Place some of the meat in the pan in a single layer. It should sizzle loudly when it hits the pan. If it doesn't, the pan isn't hot enough. Don't stir or disrupt the meat for 30 to 45 seconds. You want it to sizzle and brown on one side. Scoop as many steak bites as you can with your spatula and flip them over. Repeat until all the meat is turned. Cook for an additional 30 to 45 seconds––just long enough to sear the outside and make sure you’re getting a perfect medium-rare interior.
Scoop the steak bites and pan drippings out, and then cook the greens in the same pan if desired. To serve, scoop the rice into a bowl, add a handful of steak bites and greens, and drizzle over the ginger miso dressing. Enjoy!
