  • 1 lb ribeye steak
  • 1/4 cup white miso paste
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp sake
  • 1 tbsp mirin
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 4 cups mixed salad greens
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cucumber, sliced
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds, toasted

Cooking Instructions

  • In a bowl, mix white miso paste, soy sauce, sake, mirin, garlic, and ginger.
  • Place the ribeye steak in a resealable plastic bag. Pour in the miso mixture, seal and massage the meat. Refrigerate for 1 hour or overnight.
  • Preheat your stovetop grill pan to medium-high heat.
  • Remove steak from marinade, shaking off excess. Season both sides lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Grill the steak for 4-5 minutes per side for medium-rare, or adjust based on your preference.
  • Remove steak from pan. Let it rest for 5 minutes before slicing into thin strips.
  • Arrange mixed salad greens on a large platter. Distribute cherry tomatoes, cucumber slices, and green onions over the greens.
  • Place the sliced steak on top of the salad. Sprinkle sesame seeds over everything.
  • Toss gently before serving. Enjoy the dance of flavors!


  • Alternative cuts: Flank steak, NY strip, or sirloin work well.
  • Garnishing options: Add avocado slices or radish for extra zing.
  • Cooking tips: Use a meat thermometer for precision—medium-rare reads 130°F.
  • Salad dressing: Whisk some rice vinegar, sesame oil, and a touch of honey for a delightful dressing.
