Ingredients

For the Wasabi Aioli

  • 1 Cup mayonnaise
  • 2 Tablespoons wasabi paste
  • 2 Tablespoons tamari soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 Tablespoon freshly frated ginger

For the Sandwich

  • 4 Saku tuna steaks (5 ounces each)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Cups daikon radish sprouts
  • 4 sweet rolls, such as Kings Hawaiian Buns
  • 1 fresh avocado, sliced
  • Oil, for searing
  • 4 slices beefsteak tomato

Directions

For the Wasabi Aioli

Blend the mayonnaise, soy sauce, wasabi, ginger, and lime juice in a food processor until smooth.

For the Sandwich

Sprinkle the tuna with salt and pepper, heat a little oil in a sauté pan, and then add the tuna steaks and sear to rare. (You can also use a grill pan on the stovetop instead.)

Slice each tuna steak into 7 thin strips and set aside. Set the rolls on four plates, spread 1 ounce of the wasabi aioli on the top of each bun, and place some tuna slices on the button of each bun. Then top with daikon sprouts, a slice of tomato, some avocado slices, and the top bun. Then take a bite!

Steak Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Steak Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
