Miso Yuzu Beef

Dale Says....

This works great with chicken, or even tempeh


Japan is my favourite country in the World and I get to visit there once in a while, and have fallen in love with its flavours. Chicken or beef cooked in miso is just divine I think. Im not a huge meat eater, and very much view it as a bit like a nutritional supplement, to give my diet a boost throughout the month. Yuzu is a Japanese citrus fruit, and some supermarkets like waitrose are now selling its juice in small bottles. Dont worry if you can find it, the juice of half a lime will suffice.

Whats good?

Beef – rich in haem iron, zinc, and protein.

Miso – multiple B vitamins, and macro minerals such as calcium

Yuzu/Lime – both rich sources of vitamin C



Serves 2

  • 1 clove of garlic – finely chopped
  • Half a red onion – chopped into thick slices
  • 3-4 leaves of cavolo nero – thinly sliced
  • 600g diced beef
  • Half a tablespoon of brown rice miso paste
  • 2 teaspoons of toasted sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons of mirin (Japanese rice vinegar)
  • 3 teaspoons of yuzu or juice of half a lime


  • Saute the onion and garlic in a little olive oil, along with a small pinch of salt, until the onion is soft.
  • Add the beef and stir fry until the beef is almost completely cooked throughout.
  • Add the miso paste, sesame oil, and mirin, along with the cavolo nero, and stir fry for a couple of minutes, just long enough for the greens to wilt a little.
  • Add the yuzu juice of lime juice before serving.
