  1. In a bowl, combine frisée, chives, pickles and scallions. Season with salt and pepper and toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Set aside. In a small dish, mix daikon and chile paste and set aside.
  2. Toss mushrooms in a bowl with remaining oil, salt and pepper. Have 4 salad-size plates ready. Heat a heavy skillet, preferably cast iron, to very hot. Sear mushrooms until lightly charred. Divide mushrooms among the salad plates. Keep pan on heat. Season beef with salt and pepper. If using fillet, cut the piece in half lengthwise (with the grain). Sear beef on all sides until browned outside but still raw in the center. Cut in 1/4-inch thick slices and arrange on the mushrooms. Grate ginger on beef.
  3. Top each portion with frisée salad, add dabs of daikon mixture and drizzle ponzu on top. Serve.
