Servings 4


  • 1 pound rib-eye roast beef thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1 cup miso
  • 1 cup sake
  • 1 teaspoon MSG
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil


  • Toast the sesame seeds in a frying pan. Cook only until a few pop and the rest turn golden brown.
  • Grind seeds with a mortar and pestle or run through a food blender. Do not grind too fine.
  • Add the miso to the sesame seeds and mix well. Add the soy sauce, sugar, MSG, and sake.
  • Spread one-half of the mixture on a platter and place the beef slices in the marinade. Brush the remaining marinade on top.
  • Let stand for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Remove the beef from the marinade, scrape off the excess marinade and reserve.
  • Broil or pan fry with a little oil until just cooked - about 5 minutes. Heat the leftover marinade and serve with the beef. Generally this dish is eaten with boiled rice.
