  1. Step 1

    Place 2 or 3 scallion pieces across a slice of beef and roll up tightly.
  2. Step 2

    Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add beef rolls, seam-side down, and cook for 1 minute. Roll and cook to brown on all sides, about 5 minutes more.
  3. Step 3

    Add soy sauce, sugar, sake, and dashi to the skillet and cook, rolling beef to coat, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer beef to a plate and increase heat to reduce liquid, 3 to 5 minutes. Add mirin and return beef rolls to the skillet, rolling until well coated and heated through. Slice rolls in half to serve.
