4 steaks


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 4 (8 ounce) beef tenderloin filets

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger

  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic

  • ½ cup thinly sliced fresh shiitake mushrooms

  • 3 tablespoons sake

  • 2 tablespoons mirin (sweetened rice wine)

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic chives

  • ¾ cup unsalted butter


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Heat olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over high heat until lightly smoking. Season filets to taste with salt and pepper. Sear until golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to oven, and cook to desired doneness, about 12 minutes for medium-rare. When done, allow steaks to rest out of the pan for 5 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, melt 3 tablespoons butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in ginger and garlic, and cook until translucent and aromatic, but not browned, about 1 1/2 minutes. Add shiitake mushrooms and cook 3 to 4 minutes, until softened. Pour in the sake and mirin and simmer until reduced by half. Melt the remaining 3/4 cup butter, then reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until the butter browns, 6 to 8 minutes. Once browned, season to taste with salt and pepper, and stir in the chives. Spoon sauce over steaks to serve.
