Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Beef steak — For a tender and juicy result, choose a well-marbled cut like ribeye or sirloin. Make sure to slice the beef against the grain for maximum tenderness.
  • Tofu — Press the tofu before marinating to remove excess moisture and enhance its ability to absorb flavors.

Tips & Tricks

  • For a smokier flavor, add a few drops of liquid smoke to the marinade.
  • If you prefer a spicier kick, increase the amount of red pepper flakes in the marinade.
  • Serve the Argentinian-style Teriyaki with grilled vegetables or a side of rice for a complete meal.
  • Substitute the beef steak or tofu with chicken or shrimp for a variation of flavors.
  • Make extra marinade and reserve some for basting while grilling for an intensified flavor.

Serving advice

Serve the Argentinian-style Teriyaki as a main dish, accompanied by a side of grilled vegetables or a fresh salad. Drizzle some chimichurri sauce over the meat or tofu for an extra burst of flavor. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley to add a touch of freshness.

Presentation advice

Arrange the grilled beef steak or tofu on a platter, drizzle the chimichurri sauce over it, and sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley. For an elegant touch, garnish with a few whole parsley leaves. Serve with the side dish and enjoy the vibrant colors and enticing aroma of this fusion creation.
