This may be my favorite recipe yet. In the spirit of getting a huge bang-for-your-buck, this tuna steak is a bullseye. I picked up an amazing tuna steak at my meat market and had it for lunch. That’s right – lunch – just $5.99 for a great meal that was ready in less than ten minutes. I guess you could have some processed grease-bomb with chips and a cup of sugar for the same price. You pick. I know which one I’d choose.
Get Ready For Lunch
Here’s all you need to do… practice this once on your own, then get ready to blow away your friends. Mix the following together:
- 1 Tbsp. powdered wasabi mustard
- 1/2 cup toasted sesame seeds
- 1 tsp. Kosher Salt
Once they are mixed together, it’s time to firmly press the steak into the seasonings covering it completely. I have seen posts where they say to use tongs or some kind of gloves, but I say balderdash. Grab it with your hands and get dirty. The sesame seeds add a fantastic crunch to the tender steak.
Get the pan heated to medium-high. Don’t rush. Get that pan really hot because you only have one shot at a seared steak that rules the kitchen. Put a thin coat of sesame oil on the bottom for flavor and to crisp up the crust.
This step is important…
You all have to figure out how you like your tuna, but for me, the more rare the better. Look at the finished product in the picture. That steak was done with one minute on each side. Exactly one minute. If you really like it really rare, I would cut it down to 30 seconds per side. Now get that meat off the heat, onto your plate, and into your mouth!
There are a lot of ways to serve this beauty. Cut it up and eat it dipped in wasabi and soy sauce. Lay the slices over a bed of greens and have a salad. Take some leaf lettuce and make some wraps with rice. There are endless ways to dress it up. I just ate it (sometimes plain and simple is the best way).
Ok gang, I am going to sign off and search for another great option for all of my Viewblender friends. Heat it up and Let’s Go!
