Seared Hawaiian beef poké

Not yet rated

Danny serves up a stunning beef poké recipe using beef fillet for a meaty twist on the Hawaiian classic, which is normally made from fresh raw fish. Searing the marinated beef fillet first gives the dish a wonderfully intense flavor, with chilli and ginger offering a pleasing hit of heat.

Beef poké




First, take your beef fillet steak and slice it into 4 pieces to make it more manageable then place in a bowl, along with the rest of the marinade ingredients
Mix together gently, cover with cling film and leave for just an hour, at room temperature
Next, take a pan, place on the hob over a medium heat and add a splash of oil. Throw in the diced onion and quickly sauté off until soft and translucent. Leave to cool
When ready to cook, place a dry pan on the hob over a high heat and when the pan begins to smoke, add the fillets. For this recipe, I’ve cooked the steak quite rare, so if you want to go down that route simply sear the steaks all over, for roughly a minute until browned all over (including the cut-sides). If you want to cook to medium-rare, add another minute and so on
Once the steaks are completely seared, place on a tray and cover with foil, wrapping the foil around them. Leave for 8–10 minutes
Meanwhile, prepare the salad ingredients by mixing together the tomatoes, cucumber, radishes and the cooked onion to combine
Now make your dressing by whisking all of the ingredients together in a small jar
Now assemble the dish. Take a platter, spread the salad along the base and drizzle half of the dressing across the top
Next, unwrap the seared steak and quickly slice into cubes. Place the cubes on top and finish off by drizzling over the rest of the dressing
Finish by sprinkling the toasted sesame seeds across, along with the thinly sliced red chilli. Divide between bowls and serve
