Japanese Beef Rolls

Tonight I tried to make Japanese Beef Rolls.  They turned out good.  Oven wasn't working right tho.  And I couldn't figure out a sauce to go with them.  I tried several things but nothing was quite right.  Maybe a spicy mayo or something.  Any suggestions??  Served with noodles fried in Trader Joe's  Soyaki sauce.  Yum.

Japanese Beef Rolls


  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 12 shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 24 spears fresh asparagus, trimmed
  • 8 thin-cut top round steaks
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 bunch green onions, green parts only


  1. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the mushrooms, cover and allow them to sweat over low heat until soft. Do not let them brown. Meanwhile, bring a large pot or skillet of water to a boil. Dunk the asparagus into the boiling water, then place into ice water to stop the cooking. Set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven broiler. Grease a broiling pan.
  3. To construct the rolls, lay the steaks out flat. If your steaks are thick, pound them to about 1/4 inch thickness. Brush soy sauce onto the surface, then place a few mushrooms, a couple of green onions and 3 asparagus spears at one end of each steak. Roll up towards the other end to enclose, and secure each bundle with a toothpick. Place the rolls seam side down on the broiling pan.
  4. Roast under the preheated broiler until browned on top, about 3 minutes. Turn the rolls over and brown on the other side, 2 to 3 more minutes. Be careful not to over cook, this could burn the steaks or make them tough to eat.
