Sushi with meat: a tasty and gourmet alternative

Sushi is a Japanese dish known throughout the world for its elegance and unique combination of flavors. Traditionally made with raw fish and rice, sushi has undergone many creative evolutions over the years.

One of the most interesting variations is meat sushi, in Japan often served with highly prized kobe meat.

This delicious option not only offers an exciting alternative for non-fish eaters, but also allows you to experience a new dimension of flavor.

In this article, we will try to make meat sushi together using the highest quality Italian organic meat, discovering its culinary possibilities and a recipe for preparing it at home.

Organic meat sushi: healthy and surprising

Organic meat sushi is a surprising choice for lovers of Japanese cuisine and for those looking for alternatives to the traditional fish-based version.

Choosing organic meat is particularly significant when preparing recipes that include raw meat, such as organic meat sushi.

In these preparations, the meat is eaten raw or undergoes very light cooking, which makes the quality and safety of the product even more crucial.

Organic meat offers the peace of mind of knowing that the animals were raised without the use of antibiotics or hormones, and that they were fed natural, non-GMO feed.

In fact, for this preparation, the meat is cut into thin slices and marinated with ingredients such as soy sauce, mirin and ginger, which give it a unique and irresistible flavour.

One of the most fascinating things about meat sushi is the versatility of the accompaniments. While traditional sushi is often served with wasabi, pickled ginger and soy sauce, organic meat sushi can be paired with a wide range of toppings and vegetables. This allows you to customize the dish according to your tastes, creating unique flavor combinations.

Accompaniments for meat sushi

When it comes to meat sushi accompaniments, the possibilities are practically endless. Here are some ideas to make your organic meat sushi even more delicious:

  • Wasabi and marinated ginger : these classic accompaniments offer a spicy note and freshness that goes perfectly with the marinated meat. The wasabi adds a hint of heat, while the marinated ginger helps cleanse the palate between bites.
  • Crispy Vegetables : Add crunch and color to your meat sushi with fresh vegetables like cucumbers, peppers or carrots cut into thin strips. These elements not only improve the texture of the dish, but also add a touch of freshness.
  • Avocado : Slices of creamy avocado are a perfect pairing with meat sushi. Their smooth, buttery flavor contrasts beautifully with the marinated meat, creating a balance of flavors.

Meat sushi process

Preparing Sushi Rice: here's the total recipe for cooking sushi rice.

Let it cool slightly, then mix it with a little sushi rice vinegar to give it its typical slightly acidic flavor.

Prepare the beef slices: marinate the beef slices with soy sauce, mirin and grated ginger. Let them marinate for at least 30 minutes to absorb the flavors.

Assemble the Sushi: Place a sheet of cling film on a flat surface. Place a sheet of nori seaweed on the foil with the wrinkled side up. Wet your hands slightly to prevent the rice from sticking, then take a small amount of rice and spread it evenly over the bottom half of the nori.

Add the meat and vegetables: Place a slice of marinated beef on top of the rice. Add avocado slices, cucumbers and any other desired ingredients.

Roll the sushi: with the help of cling film, delicately roll the nori seaweed on itself, sealing the ends with a little water to prevent it from opening. Make sure the sushi is wrapped tightly.

Cut the sushi: Use a sharp, moistened knife to cut the sushi roll into desired size pieces.

Arrange the sushi pieces on a serving plate and serve with soy sauce, wasabi and marinated ginger. Add a touch of Teriyaki sauce and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds if desired.
