    Two-minute Steak with Wasabi Sauce and Rice

    *This program was first broadcast on Jun. 16, 2017

    In this episode, we'll be making steak, a dish well known around the world. After cooking it medium-rare, we'll be flavoring it with soy sauce and butter for a steak that pairs perfectly with wine, serving it on rice in a uniquely Japanese style. For our side dish, we'll be making fried kabocha pumpkin. We'll cut it into bite-sized pieces, then flavor it with nam pla and coat it in potato starch, before frying it to a delicious crisp. Rika will also be preparing a refreshing salad of boiled turnip, fresh arugula, and a special dressing made with sushi vinegar and olive oil.
