Total Time

Very tasty marinade, and this is a slight adaption from a recipe by Iain Hewitson. Prep time does not take into account marinating time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place soy, sherry (or sake) mirin, kecap manis, garlic, ginger, pepper and spring onions in a bowl and whisk to mix.
  2. Put the steaks and the marinade in a ziplock bag and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, turning every half hour or so.
  3. When ready cook steaks on a preheated ridged grill or bbq to desired degree of doneness, basting with marinade.

This made an incredibly tasty and tender steak, loved the flavors of the marinade. I used rib eye steaks and the marinade was enough for about 2.5 pounds of steak.Excellent will make again soon.

Wow! This was spectacularly good! I halved the marinade ingredients (and used the sake and mirin option) for 2 rib fillet steaks. Cooked them in the frypan and, while they were resting, added the remaining marinade to the pan with about 1/8 cup water and brought this to a boil. I served the steaks with the marinade/sauce poured over them and Chinese stir-fried vegetables on the side. Heavenly taste - a little 'hot' from the ginger and pepper but not painfully so - just delicious! This will become a family favourite!
