Fast and Easy Recipe for Beef Tataki

Monday's Leftovers: Beef Tataki

Juicy sirloin steak is famously delicious in a burger or a stir-fry, but if you're looking for a quick, fresh take on the cut, opt for something different, like a Japanese-style beef tataki.

If you've never had it, tataki is a Japanese cooking preparation that involves flash-searing meat or fish and serving it infused with a soy and ponzu sauce.

For a complete meal, offer this speedy beef-and-vegetables meal over a bed of steamed rice or cooked soba noodles. Get the recipe now.

  1. 1 cup matchstick-cut red radishes, or peeled daikon radish
  2. 1 cup matchstick-cut carrots
  3. 1/2 cup thinly sliced onion
  4. 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  5. 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  6. 2 tablespoons finely chopped scallions
  7. 2 teaspoons finely grated fresh ginger
  8. 1 pound boneless sirloin steak, 3/4-1 inch thick, trimmed
  9. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  10. 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  11. 2 teaspoons canola oil


  1. Place daikon (or radishes), carrot and onion in a medium bowl. Cover with cold water and let soak for 5 minutes. Drain.
  2. Combine soy sauce, lemon juice, scallions and ginger in a small bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of the mixture to the drained vegetables and toss. Set aside the remaining sauce.
  3. Season steak on both sides with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the steak 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Let rest on a cutting board for 5 minutes, then thinly slice and serve with the vegetables, drizzled with the reserved sauce.

Serves 4.
