Tea-smoked Steak Recipe

Tea-smoked Steak Notes

This was borne out of experimentation and improvisation. I wanted to make tea-smoked duck but didn't have all the ingredients, so I improvised with what I could find in my pantry. It worked so well I decided to try smoking steak instead. You'll need a heavy pan that can accommodate a steamer rack.

Preparation Instructions

Liberally sprinkle salt on both sides of the steaks. In the meantime, line a heavy pan with heavy duty foil. Cover the bottom of the foil with a thin layer of tea leaves, followed by rice, sugar, and spice. Cover and heat until very hot. Pat the steaks dry and place in a steamer rack. Put the steamer rack on the pan. Cover tightly. Heat on high for at least 1/2 hour, depending on desired doneness. Remove and let sit for about 10 minutes before slicing thinly.

Helpful Hints

It's great as part of an appetizer platter. You can also use it with salads.
