Soy Glazed Asparagus Beef Rolls


In Japan, people don’t eat beef all that much.  It’s probably because a pound of beef costs like a billion dollars over there.  Just google ‘A5 wagu’ and you’ll see what I mean!

So since traditional Japanese beef recipes are somewhat limited, that means we have to get creative with beef recipes like this Soy Glazed Asparagus Beef Roll!

Now, I can’t take credit for this one as I got the idea from looking at [email protected]’s beef rolls and used that as a base to work off of. 

We started with the base of asparagus wrapped in beef and went from there.  The sauce is your standard soy glaze type sauce, which kind of tastes like a mild teriyaki but not nearly as thick since it’s a glaze.

Then we added some extra garlic and Togarashi to give it a little more depth and we think it came out absolutely delicious!

It’s all pretty easy to make, just a tad intricate with the beef wrapping but nothing that should take you more than 5 minutes to do!

Just a quick note, if you’re planning to have this as a main, you’ll probably have about 10-15 rolls per person.

A couple of unique ingredients you will need for this recipe are Japanese sake, Swerve/Monkfruit, Toasted Sesame Seeds, Togarashi and Soy Sauce

Here is the sake we normally use for reference and you can replace Japanese Sake with dry sherry if needed.  For everything else, you can purchase on Amazon

Note – You can usually get thinly sliced beef at your local Asian supermarket under packages labeled shabu-shabu(thin) or sukiyaki (slightly thicker).  Either of these would work for this recipe.  Also, you can slice your own meat from a rib roast.

Now, let’s get started!
