For an easy and fast dinner appetizer with a mix of eastern and western flavors, try this roasted beef wrapped asparagus which comes together in less than an hour. With this recipe, there is no excuse for not impressing guests at your dinner table even if it is an after-work-hours gathering.
What You’ll Need:
- ½ lb Beef sliced thinly or sukiyaki style
- 1 bundle asparagus spears
- ½ teaspoon freshly cracked blacked pepper
- ½ teaspoon red chili flakes
- 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 small piece of ginger (makes about 1 teaspoon of grated ginger)
- 2 cloves of garlic
1 Make sure you got all the ingredients that you need ready.
2 In a bowl, grate the ginger and garlic. Then, add in the beef, soy sauce, chili flakes, freshly cracked black pepper, vegetable oil, and sesame seeds.
3 Mix together and let stand for 15 minutes while you clean and cut up the asparagus stalks.
4 Wrap each asparagus stalk with a piece of beef while you preheat the oven at 200C. You may also use the griller or broiler.
5 Arrange on a baking tray at least an inch apart if using the oven. They can be grilled on the griller too especially if you have an outdoor party or gathering. Bake for 15 minutes or until the asparagus are tender but not soggy and the beef is cooked through.
Serve up as is or with some sriracha for an added kick! Don’t forget to drizzle in some sesame oil just before serving. Enjoy!
