Who says you can’t have sushi for breakfast?
If you’re craving for, or simply want to impress some company with a hearty yet stylish breakfast, this is definitely for you! If there ever was a “breakfast of champions”, then this breakfast sushi recipe is definitely it! Because, honestly, what screams out “BREAKFAST” better than steak and eggs?
For this recipe you will need to make an egg wrap or omelette for the roll. Here’s TheJapanfoodchannel’s recipe on How to Make Egg Wraps for Sushi Rolls.
- Prepared Sushi Rice (Shari)
- Egg Wraps (link above)
- Flank Steak
- Scallions (green onions)
- Trim excess fat from the steak
- Mince the garlic, and rub the steak with the mince
- Season lightly with salt and pepper
- Melt the butter in a pan and cook the steak over in medium-high heat until it's medium rare
- Turn off the heat and take out the steak, then wrap it loosely with foil and let it rest for 10 minutes
- Turn the heat back on to low-medium heat and saute the mushrooms in the pan drippings
- Take off the mushrooms and set aside
- Slice cucumbers into strips and set aside
- Chop the scallions finely and set aside
- Place half a sheet of nori on your white rolling mat
- Using your hands or the non stick rice paddle, spread some sushi rice on the nori
- Flip over your base to make an uramaki
- Cut your steak into strips and line up along the nori
- Line up your cucumber and mushrooms beside or on top of the steak, and then sprinkle the scallions.
- Roll your sushi until you reach the end of the mat
- Spread your egg wrap/omelette on a board or large plate
- Place your finished roll on top of the egg wrap, on the portion closest to you
- Roll the egg wrap on top of the sushi roll until it's completely wrapped in the omelette
- Take your white mat and gently squeeze to tighten the egg on the roll
- Take off the white mat and place the cutting guide/roll cutter on top to slice the roll in 8 even pieces
Remember that you can play around with this. If you want leafy greens in there like mustard leaves, or maybe even potatoes or tomatoes, go right ahead! If you don’t want nori in there, you can skip the nori altogether. What you can do use the egg as your base, instead of nori and skip flipping over the base. Line up the fillings on the rice and roll as you would a normal sushi.
Let your imagination run wild and try different filling pairings for the steak. And, as always – Happy Rolling!
