Kind of Carpaccio

2 serving(s)


1/4 cup mirin
Kosher salt and coarsely ground black pepper
Two 6-ounce bison steaks
1 tablespoon vegetable or canola oil
1 lemon, cut into wedges



1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the mirin, 1 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon pepper. Add the steaks, turning to coat evenly, then refrigerate for at least 20 minutes and up to an hour.
2. When ready to cook, in a large skillet over medium-high, heat the oil until very hot but not smoking. Add the steaks and sear on each side for 1 1/2 minutes. Transfer the steaks to a platter and let rest for 5 minutes.
3. Once the steaks have rested, thinly slice them across the grain. Fan the slices onto 2 serving plates, then seasoned with salt and pepper. Squeeze 1 or 2 lemon wedges over each. Serve immediately.
