    About this recipe: This is a simple dish which adds a taste of the orient to the dinner table with ease. Some preparation is required but it can be put together in advance and cooked only minutes before you're ready to eat. A healthy and filling meal, it can be served with rice, or for the carb conscious, by itself.

    Serves: 8 

    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    • 12 shiitake mushrooms, sliced
    • 24 spears fresh asparagus, trimmed
    • 8 thin-cut top round beef steaks
    • 1/4 cup (60ml) soya sauce
    • 1 bunch green onions, green parts only

    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the mushrooms, cover and allow them to sweat over low heat until soft. Do not let them brown. Meanwhile, bring a large pot or skillet of water to a boil. Dunk the asparagus into the boiling water, then place into ice water to stop the cooking. Set aside.
    2. Preheat the oven broiler. Grease a broiling pan.
    3. To construct the rolls, lay the steaks out flat. If your steaks are thick, pound them to about .5cm thickness. Brush soya sauce onto the surface, then place a few mushrooms, a couple of green onions and 3 asparagus spears at one end of each steak. Roll up towards the other end to enclose, and secure each bundle with a toothpick. Place the rolls seam side down on the broiling pan.
    4. Roast under the preheated broiler until browned on top, about 3 minutes. Turn the rolls over and brown on the other side, 2 to 3 more minutes. Be careful not to over cook, this could burn the steaks or make them tough to eat.
