Easy Enoki Beef Rolls

These Easy Enoki Beef Rolls would have to be one of the most moreish Japanese appetisers we’ve ever eaten. Marinated beef slices wrapped around tender enoki mushrooms means these bite sized morsels are guaranteed to disappear the instant they hit the table.

  • Combine the garlic, ginger, soy sauce, sake and mirin along with 1 tbsp sesame oil in a shallow dish.
    1 clove garlic, 1 cm ginger, 2 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp cooking sake, 1 tbsp mirin, 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • Place beef slices into dish and coat evenly in the marinade. Place in fridge for a minimum of 30 minutes to allow all those beautiful flavours to soak into the meat. 
    400 g thin sliced beef
  • Meanwhile, slice the roots off of the enoki, leaving enough at the bottom so the mushrooms are still stuck together. Break into small sections and place into a bowl of lukewarm water. Sprinkle with a generous pinch of salt and let sit for 10 -15 minutes to add flavour. Drain.
    200 g enoki mushrooms, pinch sea salt
  • On a clean surface, stretch out one slice of beef. Top with two sections of enoki facing opposite directions. Roll the beef tightly around the enoki on a slight diagonal, so it's wrapped evenly. Repeat for remaining slices of beef.
  • Heat the remaining 1 tbsp sesame oil in a pan over medium high heat. Add the rolls and cook quickly, rotating every few minutes until browned.
    2 tbsp sesame oil
  • Once cooked, remove from pan and transfer to a serving plate. Pour any remaining sauce from pan over the top and serve immediately.



  • Beef - Use paper thin slices if you can. Asian grocers often stock these beef strips in the freezer pre-sliced and ready to go (try asking for hot pot beef), but your local butcher may be willing to do the same on request. You could substitute the beef for thinly sliced bacon. In this case, you can even skip the marinade (but where's the fun in that?)
  • Enoki - Fresh enoki is best, but you may be able to substitute with canned or dried enoki. We haven't tried this personally, so if you do we'd love to hear about it! Leave us a comment below and tell us how you went.
  • Cooking Sake - You can substitute with Chinese cooking wine. 
  • Mirin - Either omit or substitute with 1/2 tsp of sugar.
  • Cooking - Make sure the frying pan is nice and hot so the meat sears, locking in the juices and keeping the enoki beef rolls nice and tender. 
  • Eating - We recommend slicing each roll in half before serving. This will make them much easier to pick up with chopsticks and eat.
