- 1/2 cup (125ml) soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons caster sugar
- 1/3 cup (80ml) sake or dry sherry
- 2 garlic cloves
- 2 teaspoons grated ginger
- Step 1Mix marinade ingredients together in a dish, then add steaks, turn to coat and set aside for 10 minutes. Blanch the beans in boiling salted water for 1-2 minutes. Rinse in cold water, then drain.
- Step 2Toss onion in half of the oil and season. Heat a chargrill pan or barbecue on medium heat. Cook onion, turning, for 3-4 minutes until charred and golden, then set aside.
