miso mustard beef rolls



thinly sliced ribeye (if you are lucky to have an asian butcher, look for beef cut for bulgogi or sukiyaki), marinated briefly in white miso paste, dijon mustard, mirin, sesame oil and soy sauce, wrapped around sautéed spinach with garlic, then grilled. mmm. beefy goodness, without the beefy bloat. the meat is cut so thinly (1/8th of an inch), and the marinade rather strong, that a couple minutes of marination should be enough to flavour the meat well enough that extra sauce isn't needed.

I could really go for some of that right now; it looks so delicious, my mouth is watering! Very good idea for a lighter meal.

hi mia!

you're so right, it's perfect for a lighter meal. a pound of meat can easily feed 3-4 people. i make 4 rolls from about 1/4 lb of meat but i used a giant bunch of fresh spinach. if you added rice or a pilaf you'd have a feast for the same amount of meat in a fast food burger.

That lot'd flush you out good n proper... It's very green. Although I am colour blind, so maybe it's just me.

hey pieman

(laughing) you may be colourblind, but you're right--it's *very* green!

Gosh that looks good! What a great idea.

Actually, now that I mention it - it's all gone green round here. What happened? You had the painters in? BTW - did you get my 'playlist'?

hi cathy

these are probably more veggie heavy than most beef rolls, but i like 'em that way. i'll bet you could fill 'em with pretty much anything.

(still laughing) why yes, i did have them in but they keep ****ing up, so don't be surprised if i bring in laurence llewelyn lollipop to come fozzizzle the shizznit a bit. i got the playlist, and i'm surprised i have a lot of it (including roger eno--why would i have roger eno?!), but i'm searching for some of the others. i'll let you know what's only in your hands.

Hi Santos,

This looks quite interesting. I bet it has a nice flavor too. I like spinach sauteed with garlic...mmmm.

Why WOULDN"T you have Roger Eno? Velvets, Sex Pistols, Cramps, Roger. You mean you can't see the lineage??? What planet are you on?

reid--do YOU have roger eno?

ps--flavour's great.

pieman, i'm still laughing.

ps--you've got wonderful photos!

Hi Santos,

ROGER Eno? Couldn't say that I do. I have a few BRIAN Eno CDS though. My favorite is probably "Another Green World" or that one with David Byrne, "My Life in the Bush of Ghosts".

ah, then i think pieman has a few words for you, reid :-) pieman! take it up with reid!

Reid - you gotta get Doscreet Music and Apollo by B Eno. Then you MUST find and buy Flatlands and The Nightgarden. Classics. One of those was written and recorded in his garden shed at night. Gues which one?

PS. Taking Tiger Mountain by Big Eno is also worth a sniff. As is Drawn from Life feat. Laurie Anderson... i could go on...
