Total Time: 15 mins

Serves: 2


  • Neutral cooking oil, to coat 
  • 1 lb. sirloin steak, fat trimmed 
  • Kosher salt and pepper 
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic 
  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter 
  • 3 Tablespoons hibachi sauce* 

Hibachi sauce recipe: 
  • 3/4 cup soy sauce 
  • 2 Tablespoons mirin 
  • 2 Tablespoons honey


  1. Prep the steak. Chop the steak into bite size pieces, then sprinkle all sides with Kosher salt and pepper. 
  2. Prepare the pan. Heat a large cast iron or stainless steel skillet over medium high heat. Add enough oil to coat, and heat until shimmering. 
  3. Sear. Spread the steak bites evenly across the pan and sear, undisturbed, for about two minutes. Flip and continue to sear about 1 minute. 
  4. Add the garlic and butter and toss to melt. 
  5. Add the sauce, and continue to cook, stirring often, until the sauce is slightly thickened and steak is well coated, 1-2 minutes. 
  6. Serve. Remove from heat and serve with yum yum sauce, if desired.


 *This Hibachi sauce makes enough to make the hibachi steak, one recipe of fried rice, and one recipe for hibachi veggies. If you're just preparing the steak, you can substitute 2 Tablespoons soy sauce, 1 teaspoon mirin, and 1 teaspoon honey.
