Beef Negimaki

Serves: 4-8 ? | Prep ⏰: 12-15 min | Cook ⏰: 6-8 min


  • 1-2 skirt steaks (1 will make approximately 4 pieces) slightly pounded to even out the thickness.
  • 12-24 thin stalked asparagus (approximately 3-4 stars per piece of steak)
  • ½ large red onion sliced thin
  • 2-4 long green hot peppers (I will get the name of these for you)
  • 1-2 Tbs olive oil
  • 1-1.5 Tbs garlic powder
  • 1 Tbs black pepper
  • 1 Tsp sea salt
  • 1 TBS Worcestershire sauce (preferably reduced-sodium – Lee & Perrins makes this)
  • Canola oil spray (you can use olive oil or avocado spray too)

Cookware: Meat mallet + broiling pan for the oven + grill pan for the barbecue + large sauce pot or sauté pan to balance asparagus + colander + parchment paper.


Boil water in a large pot, add in asparagus and boil for 2-3 minutes. Drain immediately into the colander and set aside.

Roll out the skirt steaks on parchment paper. Lightly pound out the steak to even out the thickness.  Drizzle olive oil over 1 side of the skirt steak. Using ½ of the garlic powder, black pepper & sea salt, season the oiled side of the steak. Then use ½ of the Worcestershire sauce and drizzle over the seasoned side of the steak. Turn the seasoned side over and repeat. 

Cut the steak into 3-4 pieces approximately 3-4 inches in length. In each section of steak, place a slice of the sliced red onions on top of the steak followed by 3-4 stalks of asparagus.  Gently roll the steak closed, pinch the open section together, placing it face down on your the broiler/grill pan.  Repeat this process until you have rolled all of your steak sections.

Take your hot peppers and lightly spray with oil and place on the broiler/grill pans adjacent to the steaks. Broil in the oven approximately 6-8 minutes.  6 minutes for a rarer steak.

Note: if using your BBQ, grill over a preheated/hot grill, low to medium flame. 

Peppers should be turned over, using tongs, halfway through cooking the steaks. Remove your steaks/peppers from the oven/grill and plate the steaks to serve. Place peppers on the side.
