Directions

  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.

Excellent flavor! I had to modify the cooking times because the meat/temp I had did not need 3 minutes per side to sear and took longer in the oven. Everything else worked very well.

This has a really nice flavor. You can taste the ginger without it overpowering. My husband loved it. It made a great taste change for the steaks. Would probably work just as well with chicken.

By far the best recipe I've ever made!!!! Sooooo good! The only thing I did though was cut in half the amount of butter. It was still delicious!
