Japanese Beef Rolls with Ponzu



12 oz. beef flap meat or flank steak
6 oz. enoki mushrooms, ends trimmed
1 tsp. butter
Oil, for pan-searing
1/2 Tbsp. white and black sesame seeds, optional

1 Tbsp. Mizkan (Bonito Flavored) Soup Mix
1 Tbsp. Mizkan HONTERI® Mirin Seasoning
1 Tbsp. sake

Serving Sauce
1/2 cup Mizkan AJIPON® Ponzu Sauce


Slice the beef (across the grain) thinly to 3-inch by 5-inch pieces. Marinate the beef slices with Mizkan (Bonito Flavored) Soup Base, Mizkan Honteri Mirin Seasoning and sake for an hour.

Heat up the butter in a non-stick pan over minimum heat. Add the enoki mushrooms to the pan and cook for about 1 minute or until they are just done. (Do not overcook the enoki mushrooms, they should remain somewhat crunchy.)

Heat up the pan over medium heat. Grease the pan with some oil. Pan-sear the beef slices until both surfaces are slightly charrred. Remove the beef from the heat.

In a serving dish, roll the beef with some enoki mushrooms and secure it with a toothpick. Drizzle some Mizkan Ajipon Ponzu Citrus Seasoned Soy Sauce over the beef roll and top with some sesame seeds. Serve Immediately. 

Makes about 12 rolls
