Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice 
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon soy sauce 
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic 
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh ginger 
  • Two 6- to 8-ounce skirt steaks 
  • 1 pound Okinawan or Peruvian purple potatoes, peeled and cut into quarters 
  • Salt and pepper to taste 
  • 1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter 
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream 
  • 1 pound any variety of mushrooms 
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 teaspoon olive oil 
  • 3 tablespoons sliced green onions 
  • 3 tablespoons small diced red onion 
  • 1 tablespoon chopped Limu seaweed 
  • 1 teaspoon roasted Kukui nuts 
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil 
  • 1 tablespoon mirin 
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chile pepper, optional 
  • Pinch of Hawaiian salt 
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar 
  • 1 bunch fresh Italian parsley, chopped 
  • 1/4 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped 
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry chili flakes 

Directions

First make the marinade by combining the sugar, pineapple juice, 1/2 cup of the soy sauce, 1 tablespoon of the garlic and 1 tablespoon of the ginger. Mix well and marinate the steak for at least 1 hour up to overnight. Grill to preferred doneness.

Boil the potatoes in salted water until soft. Drain the water from the pot and mash with the butter and cream. Season to taste.

For the mushroom poke: Saute the mushrooms with 1 teaspoon olive oil and cool down (this could be done ahead of time). Combine the cooled-down mushrooms with the green onion, red onion, seaweed, nuts, sesame oil, mirin, chili pepper, if desired, Hawaiian salt, 1 tablespoon of the rice vinegar, and the remaining 1 tablespoon soy sauce. Mix well and taste for seasoning.

For the Asian chimichurri: Combine the parsley, cilantro, chili flakes, and the remaining tablespoon garlic, 1/2 teaspoon ginger, 2 tablespoons rice vinegar, and 1/2 cup of olive oil. Whisk all of the ingredients together and add salt and pepper to taste.

Divide the mashed potatoes between two plates. Top each with a steak and some mushroom poke and drizzle the chimichurri on the side.
