Butcher’s steak with fermented radishes and Korean hot sauce


Butcher's steak (aka hanger steak or onglet) is so called because there's only one of this cut per beast and butchers would often keep it for themselves. This dish can be served with steamed rice or lettuce leaves to form parcels. Start this recipe a day ahead to ferment the radishes.

1 butcher’s steak (600gm)   Fermented radishes 2 bunches red radishes, quartered 2 small beetroot, quartered 10 gm ginger, finely grated 1 garlic clove, minced   Korean hot sauce 65 gm gochujang (see note) 10 gm ginger, finely grated 2 tbsp each soy sauce and rice vinegar 2 tsp honey, nothing too overpowering 2 tsp sesame oil 1 garlic clove, crushed

  • 02

  • 03
  • For Korean hot sauce, combine ingredients in a bowl and season to taste.
  • 04
  • Slice steak and serve with fermented radishes and Korean hot sauce.
