grilled beef tenderloin skewers with miso glaze

1 1/4 pounds beef tenderloin (sliced on the bias against the grain 1/4" to 1/8" thin)
4 cloves garlic (minced)
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp. miso paste
2 tsp. tonkatsu sauce (recipe below)
1 tsp. toban jan
1 tsp. sesame oil
1 tsp. white sesame seeds
1 tsp. black sesame seeds
1/2 tsp. sugar

tonkatsu sauce:
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup cooking sake
2 tbsp. ginger (grated)
2 tbsp. garlic (grated)
2 tbsp. apple juice
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup mirin
1 tbsp. spicy mustard
1/2 tsp. ground spice

for the tonkatsu sauce:
prep time: 5-8 mins.
cook time: 30 mins.

to make the tonkatsu sauce combine all the ingredients together and wisk in a medium size bowl. transfer to a medium sauce pan and bring to a slight boil over medium heat. reduce heat and simmer for about 30 mins. stirring about every 5 mins. after the sauce has reduced a bit (about 30 mins.) transfer to a container, and place in the refrigerator, and chill.

makes about 3 cups.
this should last about 3-4 weeks in the refrigerator.

grilled beef tenderloin skewers:

you can do these on the grill or on a grill pan. if using a grill pan then heat 1 tbsp. vegetable oil on high heat.

add all of the ingredients for the glaze into a medium bowl, and whisk until everything is smooth.

thread the beef tenderloin onto the skewers. i use 2 about 1/4 to 1/2" apart so that the meat doesn't flip around. lightly brush both sides of the meat with the miso glaze and grill on both sides for about 2-3 mins. each side or until a bit charred. top with white sesame seeds and serve.

enjoy :)
