Our 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Marinate the steaks

    Drizzle a little oil over the steaks and rub the JAPANESE STEAK MIX onto both sides of them. Keep aside. 

  • 2.

    Prep the rice

    Heat a little oil in a lidded non-stick pan over high heat and fry the spring onions and mushrooms for 2 mins.

    Add the SHICHIMI RICE STOCK and stir well.

    Stir in the rice, then add 200ml water and bring to the boil. Cover, reduce the heat to low and let it cook for 10 mins. While it cooks, continue with step 3 (After 10 mins is up, turn the heat off and leave the rice covered until ready to serve.) 

  • 3.

    Fry the steaks and asparagus

    Heat a griddle pan over a medium-high heat and, when hot, put the steaks in. Let them cook for 4-5 mins in total for medium-rare, flipping them occasionally. Then remove them and rest them, covered in foil.

    In the same pan, add a little more oil and fry the asparagus over high heat for 3 mins, or until just tender and slightly charred. 

  • 4.

    Make the sauce

    For the sauce, gently melt a knob of butter in a small bowl in the microwave, then add the SHIRIO MISO PASTE, the juice of half a lime and 1 tbsp honey or sugar) and stir well.

  • 5.


    Serve the rice with the asparagus. Slice the steak across its width (across the grain) and serve with your miso sauce drizzled over.

You're making a misteak if you don't order this! Incredible!!

Marjana - Dec 28, 2019

Easy to make, nice rice, however I found sauce to sour, would half the amount of lime juice

Loved this dish! My boyfriend and I halved a 220g rump steak in place of the sirloin which still was delish. Next time I'm going to reduce the amount of rice and up the veggies for a lighter carb version :)

James - Dec 06, 2019

Surprisingly nice. Wasn’t expecting much but really good. Rice tasty. Steak really good (but used fillet). Lost a star for the sauce. Far too sweet with the honey for our taste.

We used brown rice instead as that's what we had in our cupboard but didn't take into account the extra cooking time...whoops! Everything tasted lovely though!

Tammy - Nov 18, 2019

Steak seasoning and rice were delicious. Had a nice heat to them. The miso sauce wasn’t nice, tasted powdery. Probably won’t order again as there are too many dishes that are better.

Paula - Nov 18, 2019

Not my cup of tea, sweet and spicy just didn’t mix with me on this one. Not worth the expense.

Patricia - Nov 18, 2019

Am having this again next month- it’s my overall favourite. My husband made it and it wouldn’t have looked or tasted out of place in a top restaurant. Highly recommend it but make sure you get good steaks!

Veronica - Nov 18, 2019

Sauce was awful, rice spices over powered steak seasoning

Angela - Nov 09, 2019


Lesley - Nov 08, 2019

Super tasty but the rice needed cooking for longer (which may have been to do with the rice I had). Can’t wait to try it again!

Isaac - Nov 07, 2019

Very good, different way of cooking steak

Paul - Nov 05, 2019

Rice never looks as good as in photo
