  1. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the mushrooms, cover and allow them to sweat over low heat until soft. Do not let them brown. Meanwhile, bring a large pot or skillet of water to a boil. Dunk the asparagus into the boiling water, then place into ice water to stop the cooking. Set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven broiler. Grease a broiling pan.
  3. To construct the rolls, lay the steaks out flat. If your steaks are thick, pound them to about 1/4 inch thickness. Brush soy sauce onto the surface, then place a few mushrooms, a couple of green onions and 3 asparagus spears at one end of each steak. Roll up towards the other end to enclose, and secure each bundle with a toothpick. Place the rolls seam side down on the broiling pan.
  4. Roast under the preheated broiler until browned on top, about 3 minutes. Turn the rolls over and brown on the other side, 2 to 3 more minutes. Be careful not to over cook, this could burn the steaks or make them tough to eat.

Very, very good. Next time I'll take care to pound the meat down thinner. The beef does need a little more flavor; I dipped mine in extra soy sauce. Garlic, maybe? Sesame? I'll have to experiment, but I'll definitely be making it again. So quick and easy and healthy, and quite delicious!

This was good and I would make it again. Be careful not to roll the beef too thickly; I did this by mistake and the outside was done and the middle was completely raw. I had to bake in the oven for some extra time to get the middle cooked. I added some garlic powder for some additional flavor and that worked out well for me.

My brother dislikes mushrooms very much as well as asparagus that is not cooked by him. We both loved this dish. The soy sauce and onions bring out the true flavor of the beef and there is a very slight hint of asparagus (I used 4 pieces of asparagus per each instead of the recommended 3, so this is probably why). Overall, this gets an A from me as it is fast to cook, easy to prepare - after the first time - easy to remember, and extremely filling.

Great! Looks a little daunting, but it was fun to make and I added some other vegetables I had laying around. I think I might try it with teriyaki sauce too some time.

I really liked this! I did add more than just soy sauce to the meat. Sprinkled garlic powder, onion powder and used tamari soy sauce. Very good!

Needed to tweak the recipe a bit to add more flavor. Definitely need to add pepper and a bit of salt to the beef. I let the asparagus cook longer so they'd be tender. Added a bit of minced garlic to the pan while cooking the mushrooms. Finished with some Soy Vay teriyaki sauce to dress the rolls (more like the picture) which wasn't mentioned in the recipe as posted.

I'd give this 4 stars due to the ease of making it. Next time I would definetly marinate the meat in soysauce, a bit of ginger and maybe a drop of sesame oil for more flavourful meat. The filling was excellent but as I said the meat needed more flavour. We served it with a dipping sauce which was mayonaise mixed with a bit of soysauce. The dip really brought out the flavours and made this dish awesome. I highly recommend including the dip.

Before I began the suggested prep work, I marinated the steaks in olive oil and garlin for 2 hours. I then followed the direction exactly, but put the rolls on the grill rather than broil. They turned out great, and my husband even asked for me to make them again. Great to find another meal to throw into the rotation :)
