Unfortunately it was lost in the mess that life brings to a house and I recently unearthed it with delight! The first thing in it that I knew that I wanted to try was Yawata-Maki. Steak wrapped around asparagus and green onion pan fried in teriyaki sauce, all things that the munchkins and Hubby love. YUM!
Okay here we go!
What I love about this dish is that it has simple ingredients and is easy to put together.
Oh, just a little note. See how my toothpicks stick out? Okay, not so great when you get it into the pan. It will not be able to roll around and brown on all sides. I had a mid cooking adjustment on these suckers. Lesson learned :)
All in all it turned out beautiful and YUMMY! The girls and Hubby agreed that this is something that Mamma could make again and again. Love how my little adventures have tiny hiccups but 97.9% of the time they end up with smiles and full tum tums :)
Yawata - maki
adapted from Japanese Cuisine for Everyone
1 lbs thinly sliced beef sirloin or tenderloin
2 tbs Veggie oil
Cut the veggies to the same lengths as the width of your beef slice and place at one end of the slice. Roll up the beef slice and secure roll with toothpicks. Saute beef rolls in oil, shaking the pan to evenly brown the meat. Once brown pour on the teriyaki sauce; cover and cook on low heat till done.
2 tbs grated fresh ginger
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tbs sake
1/2 tsp sugar
1 clove garlic crushed
Mix all the ingredients together and set aside.
