Negima - Beef Scallion Rolls
- Ready In:
- 1⁄4 cup soy sauce, plus more for brushing the meat
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar (or white wine vineagar)
- 1 tablespoon mirin (or 2 tsp honey mixed with 2 tsp water)
- 24 scallions, green parts only (or a big fistful of chives)
- 1 1⁄4 lbs beef, chicken, veal or 1 1/4 lbs pork, sliced ultra-thin, about 3 inches wide and 5 - 6 inches long
- Start a charcoal or wood fire or preheat a gas grill or broiler; the fire should be quite hot.
- Mix together the first 3 ingredients, then soak the scallions or chives in the this mixture while you prepare the meat.
- Place the meat between 2 layers of wax paper or plastic wrap and pound it gently with a mallet, the bottom of a cast-iron pan, or rolling pin until it is about 1/8 inch thick. Brush one side of each piece of meat with a little soy sauce.
- Remove the scallions or chives from their soaking liquid and cut them into lengths about the same width as the meat. Place a small bundle of them at one of the narrow ends of each slice, on the soy-brushed side. Roll the long way, securing the roll with a toothpick or two. (You can prepare the rolls in advance up to this point; cover and refrigerate for up to 2 hours before proceeding.) Brush the exterior of the roll with a little of the soaking liquid.
- Grill or broil until brown on all sides, a total of about 6 minutes for chicken, 4 to 5 minutes for pork or veal, 4 minutes or less for beef.

Made these tonight for dinner. Quite tasty, and very easy to make (These are made using the same technique as my Rouladen). I used the Soy sauce/ mirin/ rice vinegar mixture on all of the scallion greens, but then brushed half of them with Soy Sauce, and Teriyaki sauce on the rest. Both were good. I used a thin cut round steak and pounded the heck out of it (just like I normally do). They took about 6 minutes to get done on the grill. I will try and get the pic posted.
