I used to do this very often during the early days of being married. Benny used to work late and I am alone at home with my dog. I want to eat something home cooked, but its too troublesome to cook for just one person. So I cook this just for myself. I still cook this now on days when I had cravings for red meat.

This is really quick and easy. No fuss at all.

Yields for 1 person only. Multiply ingredients according to no. of persons.
Ingredients:
1 pc Beef Tenderloin
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp Red Cooking Wine
1 tsp honey
1 garlic(smashed, flatten)

50ml water

Method:
1. Marinate beef slices with all the seasonings for 1 hour.
2. Grill steak in oven toaster for 10 mins.(5 mins on each side).
3. Put rest of seasoning in a pot, cooked over low heat.
4. Add water, cook till liquid is thick.
5. Serve steak with salad and cooked gravy.

Notes:
You can add sliced fresh shitake mushrooms in the gravy while cooking it.
I usually thawed the beef the night before(knowing that I will be home alone the next day). The next morning, I marinate it and leave it covered in the fridge. So when i come back that night, I can cook it immediately.

For Salad, I usually had cut fruits on the side. Instead of the usual fare of lettuce, carrots and cucumbers.

Gina, i must try this out for myself. I'm always alone for lunch on weekdays and the food at my coffeeshop downstairs is not too fantastic. But that means I must purposely go and stock up on worchestershire sauce and red cooking wine. How long can I keep these 2 items once opened? Gotta keep in fridge not? TIA!

I used worcestershire sauce almost every week for marinating red meats and even use it to cook the Hainanese Beef soup. Get a small bottle of it. Red Wine Vinegar can be kept in the fridge too. In the fridge, you can keep it upto 1 year.

Gina,

Is Red Cooking Wine the same as Red Wine Vinegar?? I followed your recipe and went to buy one called Red Cooking Wine.

Believe it or not restaurants actually make steak like this. Their toaster oven is called a "Salamander" and goes up to 1800 degrees fahrenheit but it works on the same principle of infrared heat. My suggestion would be to preheat the toaster oven for 10 minutes before putting the steak in to really crank up the heat.

I still cook my steak this way on days when I am super lazy and want some red meat. I don't have a toaster oven anymore..so I just grill it in the Oven.
yummy
