We will start preparing the marinade, for that in a large bowl we put the oil, 3 tablespoons of the total soy sauce and 2 tablespoons of the total maple syrup. Season the mixture with salt and pepper and add the citronella stalks cut into pieces or, if necessary, the lime zest. We place the meat in this marinade, add the whole and peeled garlic cloves and leave the meat in the bowl marinating for an hour and a half in the fridge.

When the time passes we remove so that the marinade and the meat of the refrigerator are tempered and we preheat the oven to 200 degrees. In a casserole that can then go to the oven, we brown the meat on all sides and reserve it, keeping the marinade on the other hand.

Once the meat is sealed, add the marinade, the rice vinegar and let it reduce five minutes over medium heat. We put everything in the oven and roast for ten minutes.

Meanwhile we cut the claudias in quarters and sauté them until they are soft in a pan with the melted butter, adding the rest of the maple syrup and the soy sauce and letting them cook for five minutes over a high heat. When this time passes we add the lime juice and the mixture of five Chinese spices, season and reserve the fruit garnish to the heat.

We remove the meat from the oven and carefully fille it keeping the initial shape of the sirloin piece, we return the meat to the cocotte and bake again another five or ten minutes. Serve hot with the spiced claudias.
