# salt
# 24 thin asparagus spears, trimmed
# 1/2 cup soy sauce
# 1/4 cup sugar
# 1/4 cup mirin or 1/4 cup dry sherry
# 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
# 1 garlic clove, minced
# 1 bunch green onion, greens portions only
# 1 1/2 lbs beef tenderloin
# fresh ground black pepper, to taste

1.Preheat grill pan until hot; bring salted water to a boil over medium high heat in a saucepan.

2.Blanch asparagus spears for 1 minute; drain and plunge in an ice water bath to stop cooking.

3.In a small saucepan combine soy sauce, sugar, mirin (or dry sherry), ginger, and garlic; heat over medium heat until reduced and slightly thickened; set aside to cool.

4.Cut green onions in fourths, lengthwise, so you have long strips.

5.Slice beef in 1/4 inch slices, then pound to tenderize and thin out.

6.Dip beef slice in soy sauce mixture and place on a clean work surface; season with pepper.

7.Place an asparagus spear and a piece of green onion on the beef slice and roll up.

8.Do the same with the remaining asparagus and beef.

9.Grill beef rolls about 2 minutes until slightly charred and medium rare. Turn several times and brush with soy sauce mixture.

10.Remove to a serving platter and drizzle generously with soy sauce mixture.
