Teriyaki Steak, Quenelle of Potato and Carrot, Sautéed Portobello Mushroom; Wakami-kale soup with beans and vegetables

After helping Teja and Barb with painting their bedroom, changing the color from a putrid “Excorcist Green” that they inherited from the former owners, to a bright and cheerful bluish-purple”Gypsy” , it was time for fun: making dinner. I wanted to try Chef Saito’s Teriyaki Steak. Also I made a quenelle (tri-corner shape) of carrot and potato, accented with garlic butter, and sautéed Portobello mushrooms with lemon and butter. First course was a wakami and kale soup with beans and my own veggie stock. I grabbed a Teriyaki sauce recipe at the last minute from the web, but THAT was a mistake: I dicoverd that not all teriyaki sauces are the same. This one may have made a fine barbecue sauce and was quite tasty, but was far from a real teriyaki sauce!
