To prepare this steak with shiitake mushroom, you will need filet mignon steaks, salt, pepper, olive oil, butter, fresh ginger, garlic chives, garlic, shiitake mushrooms, sake, and mirin.

You can substitute some of these ingredients when you need to. Try using pork, chicken, tofu, sesame oil, peanut oil, ginger powder, garlic powder, Chinese rice wine, rice wine vinegar, and dry vermouth.

Begin by preheating your oven to 400 degrees F. Season the steaks in the meantime, and then bake them along with the rest of the ingredients. Separately, mix the mirin and sake. You can stir fry your mushrooms with ginger and garlic, moving them around.

Finally, mix the cooked mushrooms with the mirin and sake and cook until the liquid reduces. Finish off by cooking the chives and adding the steak to the sauce.

You can serve this steak and shiitake mushroom with white or brown rice, as well as egg noodles.  

If you want to add crunch, consider using peanuts, cashews, or toasted sesame seeds. You can also include more vegetables, such as carrots, snap peas, red bell peppers, water chestnuts, and onions.

Alternatively, if you want to change things up, exchange the mirin and sake with red wine and a touch of balsamic vinegar. You can simply switch a couple of the sauce ingredients to prepare a whole new dish every time.

Enjoy this meal warm and top with some fresh parsley and a glass of cold sake!
