[Farmhouse Recipe] Meat-Wrapped Broccoli Stalk

[Farmhouse Recipe] Meat-Wrapped Broccoli Stalk

Peel the fibrous part of the broccoli stalk, then you can use the pieces in wraps instead of asparagus. The texture is similar. This is an easy meat-wrapped recipe with yakiniku sauce.


Broccoli stalk
Thinly sliced beef or pork
Yakiniku (Japanese BBQ) sauce
1-2 tablespoons
Salt and pepper
a small amount


1. There is a fibrous skin on broccoli stalks, so peel it off. It's about 5mm thick, so peel liberally.
2. After peeling, the stalk should look like a thick stalk of asparagus.
3. Quarter the stalk lengthwise. Cook in boiling water with a pinch of salt for 2 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool.
4. Season the sliced meat with salt and pepper. Wrap the broccoli stalks with the meat.
5. Spread oil thinly in a frying pan. Cook the meat until browned. The cooking time will depend on the type and thickness of the meat. Usually it takes less than 5 minutes.
6. Once the meat has cooked, wipe the excess oil with a paper towel. Pour in the yakiniku sauce and mix until the meat is golden brown. It's done.
7. Don't these look like asparagus?

Story Behind this Recipe

Broccoli stalks are delicious, so I often eat them. For a New Year's feast, I used them in place of asparagus to wrap in meat. Since then, I often make this dish.
