Yasai no nikumaki (aka vegetable wrapped in thinly sliced meat)

This is a late post of what I made for my bento filler yesterday, yasai no nikumaki which is vegetable wrapped/rolled in thinly sliced meat. I learn this from bento book, the idea is to make a flower from carrot + leaves from french beans.

Yasai no nikumaki

For the ingredients I use : Carrot + French beans + thinly sliced beef (shabu-shabu type meat)

Cut the carrot into flower shape and the beans to match the carrot size.


Lay one slice of beef and place the veggie on top of it and start to roll tightly.


Add and roll another slice of meat ( you may add to 3-4 layers depending on the thinness of the beef)


Sprinkle a little pepper and corn flour on the rolled beef.


Cut rolled beef under low heat, add any seasoning such as teriyaki sauce or other sauce to your liking.

Remove from heat and cut into 2 and tada… a beautiful carrot flower in the middle of the beef.

You can use other ingredient such as  red pepper, baby corn and other vegetable or even quail egg up  to your liking.

I definitely will make more of this for my bento fillers, hope you will like it as much as I do.

Happy weekend all…
