You won’t be able to resist making our Red Miso Porterhouse Steak for lunch, dinner, or an any-time treat!! We eat it up like it’s going out of style every time we have red miso paste on hand, and will happily continue the tradition!
This time around we paired it with our Red Miso Roasted Cauliflower for a hearty lunch for all three of us.
Since I haven’t found a local store that carries any miso paste (red, yellow, or white) I try to plan out as many dishes as possible before I run out again 🙁 This is a long-standing favorite when we have red miso on hand and we love slicing it up into finger-food size strips to enjoy as a snack.
The rest of the family is proficient with chopsticks (yes, our 9 year-old daughter can use chopsticks better than mommy) so the ones you see pictured here are NOT mine.
I really do just go straight to finger-food snacking as this steak is truly finger-licking good!!
Make Your Red Miso Sauce and Coat the Porterhouse…
Combine the red miso sauce ingredients to make a thick sauce, then coat both sides of the porterhouse steak and set aside for at least 30 minutes to marinate (and warm to room temperature).
Pan Sear the Red Miso Porterhouse to Perfection…
We love our cast iron skillet, but use whatever frying pan or skillet you have on hand that will easily fit the porterhouse steak in it. Our steak was a perfect medium rare, cooked at medium high heat for 5 minutes on each side. Yum!
