  3. Add the soy sauce, mirin or honey water and garlic to a skillet large enough to cook the asparagus. Put it on medium low heat. Stir until it comes to a bubble.

  6. While the asparagus is cooling, prep your meat. If you are not using thin sliced meat, place your meat between plastic wrap, and pound it to about 1/8 inch (3 mm).

  8. Roll them up as best you can. not too tight, it can tear the meat, but to loose and the asparagus might not heat properly. Secure with toothpicks or twine.

  9. Brush or spray your rolls with a oil. Sesame is really good of you have it, but any will work.
