Japanese Enoki Beef Rolls (Printable recipe)
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 10 mins
Yield: 2 to 3 serves
- 20 thin slices (about 100 gm) beef fillet
- 120 gm enoki mushrooms
- 2 Tbsp Japanese cooking wine
- 2½ Tbsp light soy sauce
- 2½ Tbsp mirin
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- Trim away the roots of the mushrooms and remove any dirts. Rinse and wipe dry with kitchen pappers. Divide them into 10 equal portions.
- Roll and wrap each portion of the mushrooms with 2 slices of beef.
- Heat up some oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Place the beef rolls into the pan in a single layer with seams facing down. Pan fry for about 1 minute. Carefully turn to another side. Pour in the seasonings. Increase heat to high and cook until the mushrooms become soft. Serve immediately.
- The enoki mushrooms will release some water while cooking. Cook until sauce dries up to your preferred level of saltiness. Yet don’t overcook the beef or let the sauce turn to be too dry.
- I used the already thinly sliced beef for hotpot. You can get some from Korean or Japanese stores. The texture is really tender.
