Tri-color BBQ Beef Sushi
Not too long ago I shared Ginger Wasabi Cookies and Duck Sauce Potatoes as part of Joy of Kosher's #GoForTheGolds online event. I am revising the pantry and grabbing two more Gold's products today to create this tri color BBQ Beef Sushi.
It's no secret that we like to cook and entertain, and I am always considerate of people's food preferences and allergies and welcome the opportunity to cook a little differently. One year, in observance of the Rosh Hashanah custom to eat from the head of a fish, I made chocolate fish so our friend with a fish allergy could dine with us.
If you're a fan of sushi but don't like the raw fish, or just want to do something a little different, this tricolor BBQ beef sushi is a treat for all. It makes a wonderful appetizer or side dish. Using Gold's borscht and Gold's wasabi sauce I was able to color the rice red and green. The third and final color was the traditional white sushi rice.
Rather than using two cups of water to one cup of rice, I used one cup of water and one cup of borscht. As well as coloring the rice, there's a subtle sweetness that compliments the smoky-sweetness of the BBQ beef too. As for the green tinge to the wasabi rice, there's quarter of a cup of wasabi sauce in the water. My new rice cooker handled this very well.
I shared the pulled BBQ beef recipe with you a couple of weeks ago and if you're making the BBQ for sushi, I'd suggest doubling the recipe so you serve both BBQ and sushi!
I did not put any veggies like cucumber, avocado or mango in the BBQ beef sushi, but a cup each of red, white and green sushi rice goes a long way so if you run out of beef, you could make some vegetarian sushi rolls too. You and find the recipe for my Tricolor BBQ Beef Sushi at Joy of Kosher.
