  1. Combine marinade ingredients in a glass bowl or glass baking dish. Add beef medallions and turn to coat. Marinate for 1 to 2 hours in refrigerator.

Combine rice vinegar, mirin wine and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook until cane sugar dissolves. Fluff rice while adding vinegar mixture.
