Enoki mushrooms are thin, white and long. They are very healthy and full of antioxidants. This is a very common dish in Hong Kong. The black pepper sauce is the key of this dish. Since the beef and mushroom has no season, the black pepper sauce keep the beef moist and flavorful. The only problem is buying thinly sliced rib-eye beef. I bought them in Chinese supermarket. But if you can’t go to Chinese supermarket, you can probably ask your local butcher to slice your rib-eye thin.
Beef Rolls with Enoki
– ½ lb beef rib-eye slices (thinly sliced)
– 1 (7.5-ounce) package Enoki mushrooms
– 1 tablespoon oil
– 1 tablespoon butter
– ground black pepper
Black Pepper Sauce:
– 1 ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
– 4 teaspoons soy sauce
– 2 teaspoons oyster sauce
– 1 teaspoon corn starch
– 2/3 teaspoon sugar
– ¾ cup water
- In a bowl, combine all the ingredients for the sauce, and set aside.
- Cut all rib-eye slices in half.
- Grab 15 – 20 Enoki mushrooms and put them at one end of a beef slice. Roll the beef and wrap all mushrooms inside. Repeat with the rest of beef slices and mushrooms. Season the beef rolls with a little bit of salt.
- In a large pan over medium-low heat, heat the oil. Put the beef rolls in the pan with open-side down. Sear the beef rolls on all sides until they are cooked, about 3 – 4 minutes. Take the rolls out and place on a serving plate. Set aside.
- In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the butter. Stir in the sauce and cook until it is slightly thicken. Pour a few tablespoons of black pepper sauce over the beef rolls and sprinkle some extra ground black pepper on top. Serve immediately.
- The beef slices may look short after you cut them. But if the beef slices are too long, they would be hard to cook through when they are rolled up.
- If you like spicy, you can add more black pepper in the sauce.
