Spiced Angus New York Steak

This is an awesome dish to impress your friends with….quite possibly my favourite!!   The Spice Angus New York Steak served with Mushroom and Spinach Potato Risotto and Tomato Umeboshi Lomi!!!!  Now before you hit the road and run….it is the easiest to put together…if you don’t have all the spices, most can be bought at an Asian shop and to me it’s quite interesting to experiment with different flavours.  I went to a Food and Wine Festival in Melbourne a couple of years ago and this was presented on the menu (which I was the first to grab).  Multi-layered, utterly delicious……the only thing I object to is the potatoes being called risotto, but with steak THAT good on top, I can get over it.


2 each New York Strip Steaks

1 batch – Potato Risotto (recipe follows)

1 Tbsp – Asian Spice Mix (recipe follows) – 1 Tbsp

1/2 cup Tomatoes, Grape or Cherry

4 Tbsp Umeboshi Dressing (recipe follows) – 4 Tbsp

1/4 cup Furikake

1/4 cup Black Pepper, Cracked

1 Tbsp Thyme, Whole Dried

Mix ingredients together.

 Umeboshi Dressing

1 1/2 Tbsp Ume Paste

3/4 cup Rice Vinegar

1/2 tsp Ground White Pepper

1/2 Tbsp Soy Sauce

Hamakua Mushroom & Spinach Potato Risotto

2 each – Potatoes, Medium – peeled, 1/2″ diced, par cooked in water – al dente, drained

3 Tbsp Canola Oil

1 cup – Mushrooms sliced 1/4″

1/2 cup Onion – peeled and diced 1/4″

1 Tbsp Garlic – minced

2 tsp – Porcini Powder

1/4 cup – White Wine

1 1/2 cups Heavy Cream

1 cup – Fresh Spinach Leaves

Salt & Pepper – to taste

Blanch potatoes in simmering water until al dente. Drain in colander, under cold water, and then drain excess water. Reserve.

Heat oil in a large sauté pan; add mushrooms and sauté to caramelize. Add onions and garlic and sweat. Add porcini powder, sauté 30 seconds. Add and toss in the potatoes.

Deglaze with white wine, reduce, then add cream and reduce to a sauce consistency that clings to the potatoes. Add and fold in spinach to wilt. Season with salt & pepper. Reserve warm.

Note: Add chicken broth as needed to adjust consistency if risotto becomes too thick.

To Plate

Pre heat oven to 200 degrees. Heat a large saute pan over a medium high heat.

Meanwhile, lightly baste steaks with salad oil. Crust both sides of the steaks with the Asian spice mix. Add a little oil to saute pan, pan sear steaks golden brown on each side. Transfer into oven and cook to desired doneness. Remove and allow steaks to rest for a minute.

Reheat the potato risotto and transfer onto serving plates. Combine and toss together the tomatoes, chives and umeboshi dressing.

Slice steaks into 1/4″ thick slices and place on top of the risotto. Garnish top with the tomato-chive mix. Serve.

And to impress your guests more…serve with a Penfold St Henri….TO DIE FOR!!  Enjoy.
