Japanese Sirloin steak with baby Pak Choi and Wasabi mayonnaise

I was heavily inspired by Marks and Spencer‘s Cook with M&S app and when they started a #CookStyleSnap competition to cook and snap some delicious Japanese food, I could not but participate.  I love cooking but this is the first time I have cooked Japanese style steak by following the recipe from the app and it turned out to be very delicious. To top this off, M&S was offering a £1,000 M&S shopping spree for the winner so it was simply too good an opportunity to just pass by. which led me to prepare the dish today for dinner. Me and my husband both LOVED it. specially the Wasabi mayonnaise which adds an unique taste to the steak. The total combination is just perfect and I highly recommend all steak lovers to give a treat to themselves by making this simple recipe.

These are the ingredients you will need to make this dish (full list at the end of the post).


Sprinkle the Japanese chilli power to season the steak. I found this chilli power so aromatic.


Then pour some oil over the steak before grilling it.

My steak is ready to grill.

Meanwhile prepare the Wasabi mayonnaise which is made with Wasabi paste, kewpie mayonnaise and lemon juice.


I recommend grilling the steak medium rare. Then it is ready to be cut into pieces. Cut them into thick slices.


Cut the baby pak choi into half and grill them slightly.


Pour some Japanese BBQ sauce over them while grilling for amazing taste.

You can also serve with tea lights or romantic candles.
