Tender Barbecued Steaks on Toasty Rice

Preparation time:  Serves 2

  • 500g sirloin steak, room temperature, divided into 2 equal portions
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons mirin
  • 1 thumb ginger, sliced into thin sticks
  • 1 clove garlic, sliced into thin sticks
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • Sea salt and Black pepper

Toasty Rice

  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 capsicum, sliced (red’s nice)
  • 200g snow peas, roughly chopped
  • 1 packet (250g) precooked or leftover rice (we used Uncle Ben’s Brown Rice)


  • Heat barbecue on medium-high.
  • Mix soy sauce, tomato paste, mirin, ginger and garlic in a bowl, and, using your hands, rub mixture well into the steaks. Marinade for an hour or overnight.
  • Drizzle a little sesame oil on the grill, and sear steaks for 3-4 minutes each side, turning once only. Remove from pan and rest, covered, for 5 minutes.
  • In a frypan, drizzle a little more sesame oil, and saute onions for 5 minutes until tender. Add capsicum and chopped snow peas, and toss for a couple of minutes.
  • Add the Rice, mix to combine and serve with steaks and a green salad if required.
