  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon wasabi paste

Instructions

  3. Remove steaks from marinade; discard marinade. Place steaks on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, uncovered, 15 to 19 minutes for medium rare doneness, turning occasionally. (Do not overcook.)
  4. Meanwhile combine thickened yogurt and wasabi paste. Set aside.
  5. Carve steaks into thin slices; season with salt and pepper, as desired. Serve with wasabi- yogurt mixture.
