Recently, I once again took over the Ireland AM show kitchen on Virgin Media One. This time it was my Steak Teriyaki Baguette recipe that was getting its introduction to the nation.
If you love steak sandwiches or are looking to spice up lunchtime then this recipe is for you. The addition of delicious steak, teriyaki sauce, and mozzarella, all sandwiched together in a crispy baguette takes the classic steak sandwich to a whole new level.
You can find my original Steak Teriyaki Baguette recipe here, but during the show I gave presenter Alan Hughes some extra tips.
On the show I prepared a simple teriyaki sauce using soy sauce and honey in a 2:1 ratio. You can use either maple or chicory syrup as an alternative to honey too.
To dial up the favour of the sauce in a flash I added my ready chopped Fused Crushed Chilli and Fused Chopped Garlic to the sauce too.
One tip for making your homemade teriyaki sauce is to keep the pan heat at a medium temperature and not to take your eye off the pan. Soy and honey are two ingredients that can quickly burn.
This sauce goes great with steak, but with chicken and veg too. If you’re looking for an extra speedy and delicious teriyaki sauce look no further than my Fused Teriyaki Stir Fry Sauce.
When it come to my choice of steak, I let Alan know my preference is striploin steak. Just little bit of extra fat on your steak goes a long way to amp up the flavour.
My top tip for cooking steak is not to add your steak to the hot pan straight from the fridge. Instead, take it out of the fridge 30 minutes before you plan to cook it. This little change will make the final result a lot more tender.
Finally, if you have a few minutes, after the steak has cooked leave it to rest before cutting. This way, the steak will retain its juices and be extra delicious. A useful guideline for resting a steak is to let it rest for approximately as long as you cooked it.
