Omelette Sushi: Teriyaki Beef Fried Rice


I am not big on parties. By that, I meant planning and hosting one, as I mentioned when I was planning my Chinese Take-Out Party. But in terms of attending a party, pouring my whole heart and soul into having a good time, eating and drinking my azz off, and acting like a complete fool for everybody's enjoyment, I am your party animal.

I'll dress up or dress down into whatever you wanted me to wear, I'll play the games, and I'll sing and dance to whatever music being played, including "Country Road, Take Me Home". But most of all, I'll be the first to head off to the buffet table, and I'll be the last man standing, still scraping food off the trays, resisting the poor caterers who tried to clear the buffet table. This also explains my choices of party outfits. Although I like to look "nice" (and by "nice" I meant slutty hehe like cleavage cleavage cleavage LOL!), I never wear anything skin tight. I always leave plenty of room for multiple trips to the buffet table and the only reason I find it difficult to breathe is because I am normally stuffed up to my eyeballs with food. HA-HA-HA.


My idea of party food is something tasty and sinful (parties are all about indulgence, aren't they?), something which is substantial enough to bolster the amount of alcohol I might have to drink, and something I can still eat while looking effortlessly gorgeous and not at all animalistic (Mission Impossible? LOL).

So...
something tasty and sinful = nicely marbled fatty beef slices with teriyaki sauce
alcohol bolster = riceeeee
easy to pop into my mouth = bite size + japanese inspiration = omelette sushi =

Teriyaki Beef Fried Rice Omelette Sushi

Recipe
Teriyaki Beef Fried Rice

- 2 cups of rice, cooked one day ahead, refrigerate overnight
- 4 cloves of shallot, finely sliced
- 1 lb thinly sliced, nicely marbled fatty beef
- 1 cup of green peas
- teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, pepper

Saute shallot, add beef, add sauces, add rice, mix well, adjust taste by adding sauces if necessary. Let cool

Omelette
- 4 eggs, beaten
- 2 tsp corn starch
- 1/2 cup milk/cream

Mix corn starch with the milk/cream, pour into beaten eggs, mix well. In batches, make a thin, crepe-like omelette.

Omelette Sushi
On an omelette, arrange some beef and fried rice to form a long tube, wrap carefully (the omelette is very delicate), use a sharp knife to cut into bite sized pieces, secure with a toothpick, which also makes it easier for guests to pick.

If you found the omelette too troublesome to make and too delicate to wrap, you can use nori instead (the dry Japanese seaweed paper which is used to wrap sushi) ^_^

Submitting this recipe to Dhanggit's Perfect Party Dishes blog event to celebrate her little girl's first birthday! Yay!



This dish could also be served in a heated food tray, or just for every day dinner, in a rice bowl :)

Nonononono, I am not done with that, please don't take the tray away, excuse me! Sir! Sir!

I love the look of your omelet sushi. I haven't tried it before. I think I have a handle on California rolls and should learn some other styles. This looks like a great one to learn, thanks!
Also, your photos are great, I love the little shadows from the rolls.
