For this recipe, we preferred red miso for its deep, rich, savory flavor. It is used in both the marinade and the sauce for the steak. When slicing the steak for serving, be sure to cut against the grain. This results in shorter muscle fibers, which translates to more tender meat. Serve over steamed rice and, if you like, sprinkle with sesame seeds and sliced scallions.




Don’t force the pieces of steak to release from the skillet; when they're nicely seared and ready to be flipped, they will release easily from the pan.

A Definite Favorite
This was the best skirt steak recipe we have ever made! I substituted honey for white sugar and although the miso I used was dark red, it was labeled as white miso. We also grilled it over charcoal and served it over Carolina Gold rice. Just the best! Thanks Milkstreet for this fantastic recipe!

How do you store the miso? Can I freeze the whole package?

This is really good. Today, I tried it on the grill instead of the pan, three minutes per side, and it was amazing. I used powered garlic and gingered as it was all I had and chill it for ten minutes to it would capture some smokiness. I will definitely be making this a summertime/grilling season staple. Quick, easy and awesome!
