>> 1 burdock root (about 9"), peeled and julienned into 3" lengths
>> 1 6" piece of fresh ginger, julienned into 3" lengths
>> 300 grams Montreal smoked meat (deli slices)
>> 1/2 cup water
>> 1/4 cup Kikkoman soy sauce
>> 1/4 cup Kikkoman aji-mirin (sweet cooking rice seasoning)
>> 2 tbsps olive oil
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium-sized bowl, pour the water, mirin, soy sauce and oil; stir and let sit for 15 minutes stirring occasionally.
Take the julienned burdock root and let soak in water for 10 minutes. Rinse, then let sit in the marinade for 30 minutes.
Take 4 pieces of burdock and one piece ginger then wrap them with a slice of meat. Place in a 9 x 13" glass baking dish. Once all the burdock and ginger has been wrapped and placed in the baking dish, pour in the marinade.
Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes, then serve.
- If Montreal smoked meat is not available then fresh deli beef slices or Angus beef slices will suffice.
- No aji-mirin? Check out alternatives at Eat This Not That!.
- Kikkoman is a brand of soy sauce I prefer. Any brand will suffice should you not have access to Kikkoman products.
