Japanese teppanyaki places are sure to offer black pepper beef teppanyaki. This is because it is easily one of the most famous Japanese dishes and you don’t really need to go to a restaurant to get one. As a matter of fact, Japanese people are more likely to consume beef teppanyaki at home compared to sushi as it is easier to make at home and is inexpensive.
That’s right, the dish is easy to cook at home for a great family dinner. You can even make it a fun night by letting your kids help with the preparation.
- 1 pound of beef chunks
- ½ yellow onion, sliced
- 1 teaspoon of ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon of garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon of ground ginger
- 3 tablespoon of mirin, separated into 2 and 1 tablespoon for separate use
- 3 tablespoon of soy sauce
- ¼ teaspoon of sugar
- Prepare your beef by thinly slicing them at an approximate half centimetre thickness.
- Mix black pepper, ground ginger, garlic powder, 2 tablespoons of mirin, soy sauce and sugar into a bowl and mix until thoroughly combined. Add in the beef slices and let it marinate for at least an hour.
- Heat a pan under medium heat and add about 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. You can also use sesame oil for enhanced flavour. Once the pan is hot, add the previously marinated beef and let it cook for about 4 minutes. Add the onion slices and any leftover marinade as well as another tablespoon of mirin to the pan and let it cook for another 1 – 2 minutes.
- Remove the pan from the heat.
- To serve, put the beef teppanyaki on a serving plate with a bowl of rice and garnish with fried garlic, sesame seed and sweet radish. Serve while it is hot.
- Make it a complete, well-balanced meal by adding sautéed vegetable to the mix. Using the same pan, stir-fry capsicum, carrot and bean sprouts with a drizzle of sesame oil and serve it with your beef teppanyaki. If you prefer it to be spicier, take it up a notch by adding chilli slices or chilli flakes.
- If you like more sauce for your rice, add in more soy sauce and mirin to the pan when you are cooking your beef teppanyaki and thicken your sauce by adding a pinch of cornflour.
