Recently, I came across Shanghai Angus Steak and I was immediately intrigued. This dish is a delicious combination of high-quality Angus beef and a flavorful Shanghai-style marinade.

After trying it out for myself, I can confidently say that this is one of the best steaks I have ever had.

Shanghai Angus steak uses high-quality, marbled Angus meat. Shanghai-style steaks are marinated in soy sauce, sugar, rice wine, and spices. Grill or pan-sear it to your liking. Some restaurants serve steak with various sides and sauces.

Shanghai Angus Steak Ingredients

● 1 pound of Angus beef steak (ribeye or sirloin works well)
● 1/4 cup soy sauce
● 2 tablespoons of sugar
● 1/4 cup of Chinese rice wine (or dry sherry)
● 2 cloves of minced garlic
● 1 teaspoon of minced ginger
● 1 teaspoon of five-spice powder
● 1 teaspoon of sesame oil
● 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
● Salt and pepper to taste

How To Make Shanghai Angus Steak

Step 1: Marinate the steak

In a large mixing bowl, combine the soy sauce, sugar, rice wine, minced garlic, minced ginger, five-spice powder, and sesame oil. Mix well until the sugar has dissolved.

Add the steak to the marinade and make sure that it is well coated. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight for best results.

Step 2: Preheat the grill or pan

Remove the steak from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper on both sides. Heat a grill or a large cast-iron skillet over high heat.

Step 3: Grill or pan-sear the steak

Once the grill or skillet is hot, add 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Carefully place the steak on the grill or skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes per side for medium-rare, or longer if you prefer your steak more
well-done.

Step 4: Rest the steak

Once the steak is cooked to your liking, remove it from the heat and let it rest for at least 5 minutes.

This will allow the juices to redistribute and will result in a more tender and flavorful steak.

Step 5: Slice and serve

After the steak has rested, slice it against the grain and serve it with your favorite side dishes. I recommend serving it with some steamed vegetables and a simple side salad.

What type of steak is best for Shanghai Angus Steak?

Ribeye and sirloin are both great choices for this dish as they have a lot of marbling which adds to the flavor and tenderness.

Can I use a different type of wine in the marinade?

Chinese rice wine is traditional, but dry sherry can be used as a substitute. You can also experiment with different types of wine to find the one that you prefer.

How long should I marinate the steak?

For best results, marinate the steak overnight. However, if you are short on time, 2 hours will also work.

Can I cook the steak in the oven instead of grilling or pan-searing?

Yes, you can. Preheat the oven to 425°F and place the steak on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Cook for 8-10 minutes on medium heat.

Serving Ideas For Homemade Shanghai Angus Steak

When it comes to pairing sides with your Shanghai Angus Steak, the options are endless. A classic and simple option would be to serve it with a side of roasted or sautéed vegetables. The natural sweetness and crunch of the vegetables complement the rich and savory flavors of the steak
perfectly.

Another great option would be to serve it with a side of creamy mashed potatoes. The richness and the creaminess of the potatoes will balance out the bold flavors of the steak and make for a satisfying
meal.

You could also go for a more traditional Chinese side dish such as steamed rice or stir-fried noodles.

The mild flavors of the rice or noodles will complement the bold flavors of the steak and make for a delicious and well-balanced meal.

If you are looking for something a little more adventurous, you could also serve the steak with a side of polenta or risotto. The creamy texture of these dishes will contrast nicely with the tenderness of the steak, making for a unique and delicious meal.

How To Store And Reheat

As with any dish, storing and reheating your Shanghai Angus Steak might be hard, but with the appropriate method, you can still enjoy a delectable steak.

Steak should be carefully wrapped in foil or plastic and stored in an airtight container. This preserves moisture and flavor. The steak will last three days if refrigerated immediately.

Reheating carefully is crucial. Low-heat skillets or ovens work best. This keeps the meat moist and tender.

To keep the steak juicy in a skillet, add a little oil or butter. If reheating in the oven, lay the steak on a baking sheet coated with aluminum foil and bake for 10-15 minutes or until the desired temperature.

Slice the steak and reheat it in a pan or wok with veggies and sauces to keep it juicy and flavorful.

Avoid overheating steak when reheated. Overheating destroys beef softness and juice. Use a meat thermometer to cook the steak properly. Medium rare should be 145°F and medium 160°F.
