Sometimes you may hear people call these steak roll ups, Sukiyaki beef roll ups or maybe even rouladen. Every country has their version of this delicious dish but this one simply delicious with just a handful of ingredients. We made ours gluten-free and used tamari sauce instead of soya sauce.
What are the best vegetables to use in an Asian Beef Roll ups?
We used super thin eye of the round steak but also works best with sukiyaki beef. For our rollups, we used a simple trio of colorful low carb bell peppers. These are also delicious with enoki mushrooms and asparagus. If you choose a firmer vegetable such as carrots or green beans, they will need to be blanched before rolling up so it cooks all the way through.
How to make a simple Asian Sauce
Please do not be washing out your pan right away as the little brown bits from sautéing the Asian Beef Roll-ups is just what you need to make a delicious simple sauce. We deglazed the pan with a little mirin (Japanese wine) but you can use cooking sherry, soy sauce and garlic.
We served our Asian Beef roll-ups with some sautéed mushrooms and a side salad with sesame dressing.
