Beef and Green Onion Rolls:

12 small green onions

1/2 pound beef tenderloin 

Freshly ground black pepper

Grilled Shishito Peppers:

3 tablespoons olive oil 

2 tablespoon lemon juice 

1 teaspoon Kosher salt 

Shiso leaves, for serving 

White sesame seeds, for garnish 

Sliced green onions, for garnish 

Grilled Shishito Peppers:

8 shishito peppers

3 tablespoons olive oil 

2 tablespoon lemon juice 

1 teaspoon Kosher salt 

Shiso leaves, for serving 

White sesame seeds, for garnish 

Sliced green onions, for garnish 

Directions

  1. For the ponzu dressing: In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the soy sauce, sugar, katsuobushi and rice wine vinegar. Simmer until the sugar is dissolved and the sauce is reduced by half. Set aside to cool. When sauce is cooled, add the lemon juice and zest, lime juice and zest and orange juice and zest.
  2. For the beef and green onion rolls: Trim the green onions into 6-inch lengths. Slice the beef tenderloin into six 1/8-inch-thick slices (1 1/2 to 2 inches wide). Pound the beef slices between two sheets of plastic until flattened.
  3. Place a piece of the pounded beef on a cutting board and sprinkle with pepper. Place three pieces of green onion across the beef slice, so the onions extend over the edges. Roll the beef up and set it in a glass baking dish. Repeat with remaining beef and green onions. Pour half of the ponzu dressing over beef rolls and marinate for 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Preheat a grill or grill pan until hot, or prepare the oven broiler. Grill the beef and green onion rolls, turning, until slightly charred and medium rare, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and keep warm.
  5. For the shishito peppers: Toss the peppers in the olive oil. Grill over high heat, searing until slightly blistered, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the grill, sprinkle with the lemon juice, and toss to coat. Season with salt.
  6. To serve: Plate the beef rolls atop shiso leaves. Garnish with sesame seeds and green onions, and serve with the grilled shishito peppers and the remaining ponzu dressing.
