Method:

Grill

Ingredients

salt
24
thin asparagus spears, trimmed
1/2 c
soy sauce
1/4 c
sugar
1/4 c
mirin or dry sherry
1 Tbsp
fresh ginger, grated
1 clove
garlic, minced
1 bunch
green onions, green portion only
1 1/2 lb
beef tenderloin
freshly ground black pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat a grill pan until hot. Also bring a pot of salted water to a boil.
2
Blanch the asparagus spears in the salted water for about a minute. Drain and plunge the asparagus into an ice water bath to stop the cooking.
3
In a small saucepan, combine soy sauce, sugar, mirin, ginger, and garlic. Heat over medium heat until reduced and slightly thickened. Set aside and let cool.
4
Cut the green onions, lengthwise, into fourths, so that you have long strips.
5
Slice the beef into 1/4-inch slices. Gently pound them to both tenderize and thin out. Dip the slices into the soy sauce mixture and place on a clean work surface. Season with black pepper.
6
Place an asparagus spear and a piece of green onion on a beef slice and roll up. Do the same with the remaining asparagus and beef.
7
Grill the beef rolls about 2 minutes until slightly charred and medium rare. Turn several times and brush with soy sauce mixture. Remove to a serving platter and drizzle generously with the soy sauce mixture.
