Preparation Time 5 minutes, plus marinating time
Cooking Time about 10 minutes
1 Mix the miso paste, sake, sugar and garlic together. Spread over the steak and then cover and marinate for 1 hour or overnight.
2 Heat a griddle pan or heavy-based frying pan over a very high heat. Wipe the excess marinade off the steak. Add a little sunflower oil to the pan and then cook the steak for about 3-5 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness of the meat. Rest for 10 minutes, then cut into thin slices. Add to some noodles and accompany with shredded radish, cucumber pickle and sesame seeds.
Let your guests eat out of these take-away boxes. Search for a picture of a geisha on the internet and copy it in colour onto white paper. Stick it on the front of the box and use Chinese newspaper to decorate inside the flaps.
