Lime and Ponzu Filet


I recently received a bottle of Kikkoman's Lime Ponzu sauce through the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program.  We were grilling filets for Valentine's Day, so we decided to use the ponzu on our filets.  I mixed up a simple marinade of ponzu, lime juice and garlic, and let it marinate for a couple of hours in the refrigerator.  We grilled it to a medium/medium rare temperature.  The steak was really good!  It had a nice sweetness from the citrus.  We both really enjoyed it.  I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it because I do not like Asian flavors; this did not taste Asian to me at all.  I am so glad that I was able to participate in the Tastemaker Program and receive a free bottle of the ponzu.  I would have NEVER bought it on my own and it turns out that I reallly like it!  I am going to try the lime ponzu on some chicken next (shocking, I know). 


Lime and Ponzu Filets
(Printable Recipe)

1 cup Kikkoman Lime Ponzu sauce
2 Tbsp lime juice
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 filets

Mix together ponzu, lime juice and garlic.  Pour over filets.  Let marinate for 2 hours in refrigerator.  Grill to desired temperature.



Since it was Valentine's Day, I had to have something heart shaped.  I made my favorite simple parmesan garlic rolls and shaped them into hearts.  They turned out so cute!  They were really easy to make.  Unroll a refrigerated breadstick, roll the two sides together until they meet, pinch the bottom together to make a heart shape and viola! you have heart shaped rolls!!

  2. Beautiful job on those rolls. I still need to give that recipe a try. I have some plain ol Ponzu sauce that I need to try. A friend (who is Korean) said that it's really good on pork chops.
