{Japanese + Snow + Lemon}

Japanese Steak Rolls --

ohhhhhhh, yumm!
I'll post the recipe below :)

Japanese Steak Rolls --

1.5 lb Flank Steak
12 whole fresh Asparagus Spears
12 whole fresh Green Onions
6 T Rice Vinegar
6 T Soy Sauce
4 t Sugar
1 T Sesame Oil

Trim meat and cut it into 2" side strips. Meat should be cut against the grain.

Wash asparagus and snap ends off. Wash Onions and trip ends off. Lay one piece of asparagus and one green onion on a strip of steak and roll it up so the meat is "long" rather than rolled on top of itself and "thick". {I used 2 pieces of asparagus instead of 1.} Place in a large dish. Repeat with all meat.

Combine vinegar, soy sauce, sugar and sesame oil in a small bowl and pour over top of meat. Refrigerate for 2-24 hours. Remove meat from dish, keep marinade. Preheat oiled grill or broiler to high. Place rolls directly on grill or on a broiler pan. Cook for 10-12 minutes on each side, turning once. Meanwhile, place marinade in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil for at least 3 full minutes. Serve over meat.

Notes from the cook :)
-I added an extra piece of asparagus; once piece didn't seem like enough. So you'll need about 20 pieces of asparagus instead of 12.
-I think the meat could be cooked for more than 10 minutes... it was a little pink on the first try and I put it back in the broiler for a few more minutes
-I don't like to use a broiler pan, so I used a cookie sheet with a cooling rack to keep the rolls from sticking.


It snowed here on Sunday night through Tuesday. Ewwwwwwwww. My poor little pink chairs {perfect for Gussy-ing.} Check out the proof:

It looks good, but I'd have to try it with another vegetable because asparagus don't make my tummy feel good. Or it could be that my taste buds don't care for it.

Hopefully you'll get better weather for Easter!
