Japanese Beef and Vegetables Rolls

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by The Flying Chef

These are very delicious and full of flavour, they make a great bite sized food, if you were making several Japanese dishes. If serving by themselves as a meal, I have listed the recipe serves 4, but I usually serve sushi to start, so you may want to serve with an appetizer or steamed rice to accompany.

These were excellent! I found some sukiyaki sliced beef at my local Asian market which worked perfectly for this recipe. I followed the recipe exactly as stated, going with the thickened glaze option. Yummy, and perfect with kappamaki and miso soup. Thank you for posting!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Using a vegetable peeler slice carrot into thin strips, lengthways. Cut strips to fit beef slices.
  2. Lay beef slices flat sift about 1 tablespoon of cornflour over the top. Lay 2 pieces each of carrot and onion and top with an asparagus spear, roll up beef and secure with kitchen string or toothpicks. Dust rolls with remaining cornflour.
  3. Heat the oil in a pan, add rolls, cook until browned all over. Remove rolls from pan, wipe oil from pan with absorbent paper.
  4. Return rolls to pan, add combined mirin, sake, soy sauce and sugar, bring to the boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and simmer rolls, stirring occasionally, until cooked through. If you prefer a thicker sauce remove rolls from pan and bring mixture to the boil to thicken or add just a small amount of cornflour mixed with water to thicken the sauce. Return rolls to pan to coat with sauce.
  5. Remove rolls from pan, cool 2 minutes. Remove and discard toothpicks, cut rolls in half, arrange on a serving plate and pour remaining sauce over.
