1  Small Red Onion-very thinly sliced
1 Tbsp. Kosher Salt
1 Tbsp. Sugar
1/4 Cup Rice Vinegar
4  Tuna Steaks-1” thick, patted dry, seasoned with salt and pepper
2  Tbsp. Canola Oil
1  Cucumber-thinly sliced
2  Black Plums-sliced
To Taste:   Salt, Black Pepper, Rice Vinegar

Place the sliced onion in a small bowl. Toss with the salt and sugar. Let sit for about 15 minutes until wilted. Rinse very well to remove excess salt, gently squeeze to remove water and place in a small bowl and toss with the vinegar. Reserve for plate.

Heat a saute pan on medium high heat. Add canola oil and tuna steaks. Sear very well on all sides. At this point the tuna will be a rare doneness. If more well cooked is desired, lower the heat and continue turning to cook more thoroughly.

Prepare the plates by dividing the sliced cucumber, pickled red onions, and sliced plums on four plates. Drizzle the plums and cucumbers with a few drops of rice vinegar if desired. After the tuna is out of the pan, let rest for 3 minutes and slice if desired. Place on the fruits and vegetables and enjoy!

  • 1 12 oz. Beer-any favorite
  • ½ Cup soy sauce
  • ¼ Cup brown sugar
  • 2 Pork tenderloins - cleaned of any silverskin and fat
  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil

Cucumber Slaw

  • 1 Cup peeled, seeded, shredded cucumber
  • 1 Cup shredded Asian pear-can substitute any apple or pear
  • ¼ Cup finely sliced red onion
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh cilantro
  • 3 Tbsp. rice vinegar
  • To taste salt, and black pepper


  1. Prepare brine for the pork by whisking together the beer, soy sauce, and brown sugar until combined. Add the pork tenderloins, insure they are submerged in the brine and refrigerate overnight.
  2. The next day, remove the pork from the brine, discard brine. Pat the pork dry very well with paper towels. Rub down the pork with the vegetable.
  3.  Place on a preheated grill set on high heat. Grill on all sides until deep in color with grill marks. Set one burner on the grill to its lowest setting and turn off others. Move the pork to the side of the grill where the burners are turned off to cook on indirect heat. Cover the grill and let cook for about 15 minutes or until 145°f is reached at this thickest point. Remove from the grill and let rest prior to slicing. Meanwhile, prepare the slaw.
  4. In a bowl, combine the cucumber, Asian pear, red onion, cilantro and rice vinegar, seasoning to taste with salt and pepper. Divide onto four serving plates.
  5. Slice the pork across the grain and serve with the slaw.
