Chef Brainy
What Started it all:
Steak, Turnip, yeast, food processor

Hey there, food lovers! This is a quick and easy recipe to bring a taste of Japan to your dinner table. Juicy steak paired with a creamy turnip puree will make your taste buds dance. Let's get cooking!


  • 4 steaks (about 6 oz each)
  • 2 large turnips, peeled and cubed
  • 1 teaspoon yeast
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon mirin (sweet rice wine)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter


  1. Prepare the Turnip Puree: Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the cubed turnips and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain the turnips and transfer them to a food processor. Add the yeast, salt, and pepper, then blend until smooth. Set aside and keep warm.
  2. Marinate the Steaks: In a small bowl, mix the soy sauce and mirin. Brush the mixture onto both sides of each steak. Let the steaks marinate for about 10 minutes.
  3. Cook the Steaks: Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the steaks and cook to your preferred doneness (about 3-4 minutes per side for medium-rare). Remove the steaks from the skillet and let them rest for a few minutes.
  4. Finish the Turnip Puree: In the same skillet, melt the butter over low heat. Add the turnip puree and stir until warmed through and well combined with the butter.
  5. Serve: Plate the turnip puree and top with the steak. Garnish with a sprinkle of fresh herbs if desired.

There you have it, a delicious Japanese-style steak with a creamy turnip puree that's ready in a flash. Perfect for a weeknight dinner or a special occasion without the fuss. Enjoy!
