Beef & Asparagus Negimaki Rolls
This Japanese recipe for beef negimaki rolls (in which beef flavored with teriyaki sauce is wrapped around scallions) includes asparagus as well for extra vegetables.
Equipment: 4 skewers
Tip: Skirt steak--a relatively inexpensive, thin, long cut with a rich, beefy flavor--is becoming more widely available. Call ahead to make sure the market has it or ask your butcher to order it for you. For this recipe, you'll need a piece that's about 12 inches by 4 inches.
