Kai Lan wrapped in sliced beef

I caught this dish from the culinary inspiring Korean show called ‘ King of Food’. This show is timely because I have lately been so uninspired in the kitchen. The dish takes a bit of work but the effort is all worth it. If all things fail, it is at least elegant looking and makes an impression when guests come over.

Ingredients :
10 slivers of beef
10 stalks of mustard green with flowers or kale with flowers

Method :
To prepare the meat, line up beef and drizzle with thin layer of bulgolgi marinade or any of your favorite seasoning.
Chill meat while preparing the kale.
Use a vegetable peeler and shave off the tough, fibrous part of the kale.
Blanch in boiling, salted water ,  thickest part for 1 minute followed by the leaves, 10 seconds.
Drip dry and leave to cool.
Wrap the beef over the stalk of the kale.
In a hot pan, heat olive oil.
Sear the wrapped vegetable.
Pour in one cup of broth over the vegetables.
Cover and leave to cook, 1 minute.
Serve immediately. Garnish with sesame seeds and oil if desired.


  1. Interesting, both my favourite. Next time I must remember your post when I have these two ingredients on hand.

  2. It sounds delicious and looks pretty good!
