Ginger-maple Steak served with napa cabbage and grilled onions

  • Pour all the liquid ingredients and the minced ginger into a bowl to create the marinade.
  • Slice the steaks into 2cm thick strips.
  • Place the steak strips and 120ml of the marinade into a bowl, cover the bowl and store the pair in the fridge anywhere from 15 minutes to overnight. Decant the rest of the marinade into an airtight container and refrigerate.
  • Preheat your grill (preferably charcoal, woodchip will also work well) to medium heat.
  • Slice the onions into 1cm thick slices, and thinly slice the napa cabbage.
  • Remove the steaks from the liquid marinade and discard this marinade. Season the steak slices with salt and pepper. Place your onions onto the grill. Grill the onions for 5 minutes.
  • Add your steak on top of this bed of onions. Continue grilling both of these ingredients for 15-18 more minutes (for medium-rare steaks). Remember to turn the steaks and onions occasionally.
  • Plate up the cabbage, move the onions and the steak straight onto the cabbage. Take the remaining marinade and drizzle over the top of the meat.
  • Serve to your adoring and grateful family.
