Jenny is in perpetual search for easy, weeknight recipes to attempt to feed her family. When they balk, she just eats more.

Today: A case for yuzu kosho, and the steak to put it on.

Steak from Food52

Don't get mad -- I'd like you to buy yuzu kosho. I am sorry about this, but this condiment, fashioned from chili peppers and yuzu peel, will spice up your kitchen doings in a million ways, including, according to the guy I bought it from in a Japanese grocery store not far from my house, your deviled eggs

It is also a key ingredient in Miso Marinated Flat Iron Steak with Yuzu Kosho

I used red miso paste, but as the recipe indicates, your options are open. Yes, you need mirin and sake. I let my steak marinate on the counter top, not in the fridge, and used a grill pan, not the grill, to cook it -- because you know, polar vortex. Please enjoy it all week.
