Beef Rolls in Tomato Sauce

I trying my hands on a beef dish for my son. He needs to put on more weight. I found this recipe that uses beef when I was sorting the recipes I tore from magazines. I have adjusted some of the ingredients with some of my son’s favourites. Hope it will catch his attention.

  • 8 slices of thinly sliced beef
  • 4 baby corn, cut into 4 ‘sticks’ each
  • Carrot thinly sliced or shredded.
  • 8 cherry tomatoes, diced
  • 1 tablespoon Tomato sauce
  • 2 teaspoon Soy sauce (1 each for marinating & sauce)
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar
  • 200ml Stock or water
  • Cornflour mixture (mix 1 teaspoon cornflour with 1 tablespoon water)
How to do it:
  1. Marinate the beef with a teaspoon of soy sauce for 10 minutes.
  2. In a small pot of hot water, add 1 teaspoon of salt & oil.
  3. Blanch the baby corn. Remove & put it in a bowl of room temperature) water to stop it from further cooking.
  4. When this is done, roll the beef with a slice of carrot and 2 sticks of baby corn.
  5. Hold the beef with toothpick
  6. Dust the beef rolls with cornflour.
  7. Heat 1 teaspoon of oil and pan-fry the beef roll till the beef roll is cook (about 8 mins)
  8. Remove from pan.
  9. In the same pan, add in the diced cherry tomatoes and seasoning except the cornflour mixture.
  10. When the sauce starts to boils, add in the beef rolls to cook for a while to absorb the sauce.
  11. Remove & set aside.
  12. Now, add the cornflour mixture gradually to thicken the sauce.
  13. Pour the sauce over the beef rolls and serve.

You can also use enokitake mushroom in it. Do adjust the amount of the seasoning if you prefer more sauce.
