Now that's a spicy flank steak recipe!

At Takashi restarant in Chicago, Takashi Yahihashi cooks strip steak in a spicy wasabi-horseradish cream. He accompanies the meat with tiny, peeled miso-glazed fingerling potatoes and deep-fried salsify (a root vegetable)

Servings: 6


2 tablespoons wasabi powder
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons horseradish, drained
1 teaspoon low-sodium soy sauce
1 2-pound flank steak
4 teaspoons canola oil
1 pound fingerling potatoes
1 tablespoon miso
1 tablespoon mirin
1 bunch watercress, stemmed, to garnish
  1. Preheat the oven to 450F and preheat a cast-iron grill pan.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the wasabi and water, then stir in the horseradish and soy sauce.
  3. Rub the steak with 1 teaspoon of the oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the steak over high heat until lightly charred, about 5 minutes. Flip the steak and spread the wasabi mixture over the charred side.
  4. Transfer the pan to the oven and roast the steak for 10 minutes, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 135F for medium rare.
  5. Transfer the steak to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, in a saucepan of boiling water, cook the potatoes for 15 minutes. Drain and let cool. Wipe out the saucepan.
  7. Add the remaining 3 teaspoons of oil and the potatoes and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally until golden, 5 minutes.
  8. Combine the miso and mirin; add to the potatoes and cook, stirring, until glazed, about 2 minutes.
  9. Thinly slice the steak across the grain and serve with the miso-glazed potatoes and the watercress.
