    s'kat's Note:

    This spicy pepper coating and asian-style sauce prove that you can't go wrong with the simplest of ingredients. Add a touch of chili-garlic paste to the sauce for a hint of fire. This recipe is altered from original Bon Appetit.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine black pepper and sesame seeds in bowl.
    2. 2
      Press tuna steaks into mixture, until coated.
    3. 3
      Heat sesame oil over medium-high heat.
    4. 4
      Add tuna steaks and sear about 1- 1 1/2 minutes each side (I like mine rare in the center, longer if you prefer well-cooked tuna).
    5. 5
      Transfer steaks to tented aluminum foil to keep warm.
    6. 6
      Add a touch more oil to pan, then add soy sauce and sherry.
    7. 7
      Add garlic and most of green onion (reserving some of the tops).
    8. 8
      If too much has boiled off, add a bit of red wine if necessary.
    9. 9
      Reduce heat and simmer until mixture is slightly reduced, scraping up any brown bits, about 1 minute.
    10. 10
      Spoon sauce over tuna steaks, and sprinkle remaining green onion on top.
    11. 11
      Note: if you want to make more of this sauce, it tastes fantastic, and goes great with rices, potatoes, roasted veggies, etc.
    12. 12
      In the photo, I cross-cut Italian bread, drizzled with olive oil and briefly toasted.

      This was very good, although I would use probably half of the pepper suggested. I do enjoy spicy food, but this was a little too peppery for my and my husband's taste buds. I agree, the sauce is excellent on other things... I served the tuna with a mixed baby green lettuce side, and sauteed snow peas, and they both got some of the sauce on them and it was delicious! I also served broiled, parmesean,covered thick sliced tomato with it. My husband asked me to make it again sometime, and I agree, it is worth doing again, low cal, tasty, and easy. Try it!!!

      My first successful tuna steaks! Every other time they were overcooked and flavor-lacking. Served them on a bed of mesclun and had to substitute a few rings of real onions and a leek instead of green onions. I threw in a sliced carrot and some grape tomatoes to make more of a salad too. Big hit. My mouth is still a little spiced from the peppercorns and I love it! excellent!
