What ingredients do I need and how do you make asparagus beef roll ups?

  • Thinly Sliced Beef – about 15 slices.  Buy thinly sliced beef from Asian supermarkets or slice your own.
  • Asparagus – pre boiled making sure not to overcook.
  • Salt – table salt or sea salt.
  • Black Pepper – fresh or pre-ground.
  • Cooking Oil – high temp neutral cooking oil such as vegetable oil, safflower oil, grapeseed oil.
  • Japanese Sake – use Japanese cooking sake which is fairly inexpensive and can be found in most Asian supermarkets.
  • Sweetener – to keep this recipe sugar-free, we use a monkfruit erythritol blend.  It is low carb, keto friendly and has 0 calories.  Feel free to use your preferred sweetener or regular cane sugar.
  • Soy Sauce – low sodium is preferred.  For gluten free you can use tamari or coconut aminos.
  • Garlic – grated using a hand grater.
  • Green Onions – finely chopped for garnish.
  • Sesame Seed (optional) – sprinkle on top for garnish
  • Togarashi (optional) – top if you prefer a spicy kick.

Roll pre-cooked asparagus in thinly sliced beef. The beef should be thin enough that you don’t need a toothpick to keep it secure. Cook beef roll ups on a pan. Rotate frequently and until they are thoroughly cooked.

Add soy glaze sauce to the pan and continue to cook for 15-20 seconds. Transfer to serving plate and sprinkle green onions and optional sesame seeds and togarashi.
