To create this dish flank steak is first sliced, then placed in a marinade of soy sauce, mirin, barley miso and red rice vinegar. The marinated steak slices are then wrapped around approx. three asparagus stems and secured with a toothpick. Finally the bundles of steak and asparagus are placed in the oven for approx. 45 mins.

Flank steak has a lot of flavor and that flavor can be amped up when marinated in distinctive flavors. The marinade also works as a tenderizer, as flank steak can be a little chewy on its own.
