Directions

  1. In a bowl, mix the mirin, garlic, soy sauce, monosodium glutamate, and sugar; stir to dissolve the sugar. Place the beef and green onions into the marinade, stir to coat with marinade, and allow to stand for 30 minutes. Soak bamboo skewers in water.
  2. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.
  3. Roll a slice of thin beef around a piece of green onion; skewer the roll with 2 bamboo skewers, place about 1/2 inch apart. Repeat twice more, placing 3 beef rolls onto the 2 skewers. Repeat with remaining beef, green onion, and skewers until all the beef is rolled up. Place skewers onto a broiling pan. Discard used marinade.
  4. Broil until browned on both sides, about 3 to 3 1/2 minutes per side.

I did it slightly different according to what I had but it was still so good. I used dried minced garlic, I did not have MSG and used a small amount of sea salt in its place. Also low sodium soy sauce. The mirin is what makes it imo. I fried it up on the stove instead of doing it in the broiler.. fantastic flavor and my 4 and 6 year old loved it too with a bit of jasmine rice.

I thought this was pretty good. It kind of had both a sweet and salty taste. I used 3 NY strip steak, because it was all I had. I also just put the green onion directly in the marinade and used a sweet white wine I had. I put the meat on 6 skewers, with a generous 8-9 1" pieces of meat. They broiled in about 11 minutes, flipping twice.
