Beef and vegetable rolls


300 g thinly sliced beef

100 g burdock root (the thinner the better)

1 carrot (~50 g)

50 g kidney beans

Potato starch (katakuri ko)

1 tbsp salad oil

Stock for cooking the burdock (#1) 2 cups dashi stock

2 tbsp soy sauce

3 tbsp sweet rice cooking wine (mirin)

Sauce (#2) 4 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp sugar

1½ tbsp mirin

2 tbsp sake

Shichimi Japanese pepper


1Scrub the burdock root and peel. Cut into pieces 15 cm long. When scrubbing the burdock root, use a scrubbing brush and peel under running water.

2If the root is thick, cut it into four pieces lengthwise, and then cut into pieces about 7mm by 7 mm thick. Soak in water for a while and then drain.(*1)

3Place the burdock into #1 sauce in a pan, place a smaller lid on the burdock, and cook for 15 minutes over medium heat to soften.(*2) When it is softened, drain and cool in a colander.

4Cut the carrot into pieces about 5 mm by 5 mm thick. Remove stem end of the kidney beans.

5Place the carrot in a pan, add water to cover the carrot, and boil. Ten minutes later, add the kidney beans and cook for three more minutes. Drain and cool in a colander.

6Lay out slices of beef (one or two) to make a sheet about 30 cm long and 10 cm wide. Lightly sprinkle the surface of the beef with the potato starc.(*3) "Using a tea strainer to sprinkle the potato starch is a cool idea!"

7Place about ve pieces of the burdock at the end of the beef at an angle and roll into a cylinder. Place the rolls with the exposed edge down so they do not unroll. In a similar way, make beef rolls with the carrot pieces and the kidney beans.

8Heat the salad oil in a frying pan, and place the rolls in the pan edge down. Carefully and slowly turn the roll while browning until the entire surface is brown. "Place the rolls in the pan edge down so they do not unroll."

9Remove the remaining oil from the pan using a paper towel. Add sauce #2, reduce the sauce over medium heat. When the surface of the rolls is glazed, remove from heat, and cool.

10Cut the roll into bite-size pieces and place on a plate.


*1: After cutting, soak the burdock root in water to remove any bitterness. But soaking too long lessens the fl¬avor, so soaking for about five minutes is best. If you like the bitter flavor, delete this process.

*2: Placing a lid smaller than the pan circumference on ingredients is called “otoshibuta,” a technique used to season the ingredients evenly with stock. If you don’t have a special lid, aluminum foil can be used.

*3: Use a tea strainer to sprinkle the potato starch on the beef slices to get a light, even covering.
