Steak Bites with Garlic Aïoli

Yields1 Serving

 4 well-marbled striploin steaks, an inch or so thick
 1 cup dark soy sauce
 3 garlic cloves, minced
 1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger
 1 Tbsp lemon juice
 1 tsp sesame oil
 freshly ground black pepper
 butter, for cooking

Cut the steak into bite-sized (about 1-inch) pieces. Combine all the marinade ingredients in a glass baking dish, add the meat, turn to coat, and marinate for 10 minutes to half an hour, stirring once or twice. Do not marinate it overnight, as this is a fairly salty marinade.


Set a heavy skillet over medium-high heat and add a blob of butter. When the foaming subsides, add the steak in batches, without crowding the pan, and leave for a minute or two to get a nice sear on the first side. Turn and cook for a few minutes, until golden all over. Transfer to a shallow bowl. When all the steak is cooked, drizzle the buttery juices from the bottom of the pan over them. Serve with garlic aioli.
