Sesame-Crusted Beef with Ponzu Dressing

RECIPE: Sesame-Crusted Beef with Ponzu Dressing. Brought to you by MiNDFOOD. Sesame seeds add a great, nutty flavour to meats. This eye fillet, encrusted in black and white sesame seeds, is a delicious Asian-inspired roast.

Serves 8

¾ cup light soy sauce

3 tbsp caster sugar

1 tbsp rice vinegar

1 tbsp ginger, finely grated

1 tsp sesame oil

2 x 1kg eye fillet 

¼ cup black sesame seeds

¼ cup white sesame seeds

1 tbsp peanut oil

4g bonito flakes

1 tbsp lime juice

baby herbs, to serve

Place ¼ cup soy sauce, 1 tablespoon sugar, rice vinegar, ginger, and sesame oil into a large bowl and mix to combine. Add beef, turning to coat, then cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. 

Preheat oven to 180°C. Remove beef from marinade; wipe off excess. Place sesame seeds on a baking tray

and roll beef in sesame to evenly coat.

Heat oil in a large, nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add beef and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side, or until golden.

Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper and roast for 20 minutes for medium rare. Let rest for 10 minutes.

Place remaining soy sauce and sugar in a small saucepan and cook, stirring, over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Simmer for 4-5 minutes, or until sauce thickens. Stir in bonito flakes and lime juice, then set aside and let cool to room temperature.

To serve, thinly slice beef and place on a serving platter, spoon ponzu dressing over beef, and top with baby herbs.
