    Miso beef with griddled asparagus and salad onions

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes, plus marinating
    • Cooking time: 15 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes, plus marinating

    Serves: 2


    2 tbsp brown rice miso paste or white miso paste
    1 tbsp mirin
    1 tbsp soy sauce
    1 garlic clove, crushed
    2 tsp essential Waitrose honey
    2 essential Waitrose sirloin steaks (about 450g total)
    1 bunch essential Waitrose salad onions, trimmed
    100g asparagus tips
    250g pack microwave basmati rice
    1 essential Waitrose lime, juice
    1 tbsp toasted sesame oil


    1. Combine the miso paste, mirin, soy sauce, garlic and 1 tsp honey, then rub all over the steaks. Leave to marinate in a bowl or resealable bag for 20 minutes (or up to 24 hours in the fridge).

    2. Preheat a griddle pan to smoking hot. Cook the steaks for 2-3 minutes each side, then set aside to rest. Put the salad onions and asparagus on the griddle and cook for 6-7 minutes, turning until they have griddle marks. Cook the rice according to pack instructions. Slice the steak.

    3. Mix the remaining 1 tsp honey with the lime juice and sesame oil; season. Divide the salad onions and asparagus between 2 plates, alongside the rice. Add the sliced steak and drizzle over the dressing.
