Fillet steaks are pan-seared, then baked in the oven until done. The steaks are served with a delicious sauce made with garlic, ginger, shiitake mushrooms, sake, mirin, garlic chives and browned butter.
If your local supermarket doesn't stock sake, mirin or garlic chives, they can be found in Chinese/Oriental speciality stores.
Excellent flavor! I had to modify the cooking times because the meat/temp I had did not need 3 minutes per side to sear and took longer in the oven. Everything else worked very well. - 07 Dec 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
By far the best recipe I've ever made!!!! Sooooo good! The only thing I did though was cut in half the amount of butter. It was still delicious! - 05 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This has a really nice flavor. You can taste the ginger without it overpowering. My husband loved it. It made a great taste change for the steaks. Would probably work just as well with chicken. - 07 Nov 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
