The great thing about this dish is that you can make most of it well in advance. First you need to make your marinade and sauce. It’s so simple because the marinade and the sauce are the same! Simply mix together the sesame oil, lemon juice, soy sauce and the sugar and pepper. Put equal measures of this into two bowls. Next, cut the pear into chunks, slice one shallot and chop one clove of garlic. Stir these ingredients into one of the bowls and add the meat, making sure it is well covered. Cover with cling wrap and put in the fridge for about 3 hours. Cover the other dish and leave that one at room temperature. Chop the remaining garlic and shallot and take out to the Egg with you.
Getting the Big Green Egg ready for action
Making sure you’ve got your cast iron grid in place, light your charcoal and get the temperature up to 200C. Using your Cast Iron Sauce Pot at the side of the grid, heat up the sunflower oil. Remove your steaks from the marinade and give them a light wipe, don’t discard the leftover marinade. Put your steaks on the grid for around 30 minutes, rotating halfway through to create those luscious grill lines. After 30 minutes turn them over and repeat the process on the other side. Remember to shut the Egg lid
Now remove the steaks from the Big Green Egg
and put them to one side, covering in tin foil. Add the garlic and shallot to the pan now and fry for a couple of minutes. Now add the leftover marinade, and your dish of sauce to the pan and allow to boil, then simmer for two minutes. While this is simmering, you can slice the steak.
Now check the thickness of your sauce. If it appears a little watery then add a little cornflour mixed with water to thicken it and simmer for a further 2 minutes.
Finally, prepare your dish
The final step is to add boiled rice and a slice of steak onto a large lettuce leaf. Pour over some sauce, add a sprinkling of chopped spring onions and wrap it all up into a little parcel. These little bundles of delight are easy to eat so they’re great for parties, and they taste divine!
