Let me start by saying I know this is not a traditional poke bowl because it has steak rather than seafood but IT IS REALLY REALLY GOOD so we'll call it a variation and move on.
Skirt steak has been my obsession the past few weeks, mostly because of this recipe. I had it for dinner one night and lunch the next day and have been thinking about it ever since.
I marinated the steak in a honey Sriracha marinade, diced some toppings, and made rice. A little amount of effort for a huge reward. Also look how colorful and pretty it is? Not to mention you're getting a lot of good nutrition here.
Secret time: I ended up using a fork because I'm not a patient person and it really shows when I'm hungry.
Okay recipe time:
1 cup dry white rice (basmati, sushi, etc)
1 handful of greens (spring mix for example)
1/2 lb skirt steak
Honey Sriracha Steak Marinade:
- 1 tbsp sriracha
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- juice from 1/2 lime
- 1 tsp garlic powder or 2 cloves garlic, diced
- 1 tsp ginger powder or 1 inch fresh ginger
- 1 tbsp white vinegar
- t tbsp salt
- 1 jalapeno, diced
- 1/2 cup diced or julienned cucumber
- 1/2 cup diced or julienned carrot
- 1/3 cup diced green onion
- 1/4 purple onion, sliced
- 1/2 avocado, peeled and sliced
- soy sauce
- ponzu sauce
- black and white sesame seeds
- diced green onion
- pickled ginger
1. Combine marinade ingredients in a plastic bag, add steak and let sit in the fridge for at least 30 min. I do this during lunch and then it's ready to cook when I get home from work.
2. Prepare all the veggies, set out for assembly
3. Add a little bit of olive oil (not EVOO because it has a low smoke point) and 1 tbsp of butter to your cast iron or non stick skillet, heat over medium+ until butter is melted. Add the steak and cook 3-4 min on each side or until slightly browned.
4. Let the steak sit 10 minutes before cutting, cut against the grain into thin strips.
5. Assemble your bowl by adding rice, drizzle with ponzu sauce, top with chopped greens and veggies then steak. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve with soy sauce, ginger and wasabi on the side. If you can get through this with only chopsticks and without loosing your temper, I commend you.
