1 tablespoon peanut or vegetable oil
1 small red onion -- cut into thin
slivers 2 garlic cloves -- minced
4 scallions -- trimmed
4 carrots -- shredded (about 4
cups) 8 ounces daikon -- shredded (about 2
1 cup chicken broth
1/4 pound fresh shiitake mushrooms -- very thinly sliced
1 small head napa cabbage -- shredded (3 to 4
cups) 1/4 cup Barbecue Sauce (see recipe)
Salt and pepper
INSTRUCTIONS: Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large skillet (preferably nonstick). Add onion slivers and saute over medium-high heat until soft, about 5 minutes.
Increase heat to high and add garlic, scallions and carrots and stir quickly. (If your pan is not large enough, do this in batches.) Add daikon, 1/2 cup chicken broth, and mushrooms. Cook, stirring, until mixture is nearly dry, 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer mixture to a bowl. Keeping pan over high heat, add remaining teaspoon oil and heat almost to smoking point. Add cabbage and quickly stir-fry until softened. Add reserved cooked vegetables, remaining 1/2 cup chicken broth, and barbecue sauce. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cook until heated through. Set aside 2 cups of the mixture for roulade filling.
Serve remainder with Grilled Flank Steak. To reheat, stir-fry over high heat just until warmed through.
Yields 4 1/2 cups.

FIRST NIGHT: GRILLED FLANK STEAK For convenience, grill all the meat at the same time: the Roulade, the butterflied steak for the Citrus Salad and, of course, the steak for tonight.
1 marinated flank steak (about 1 3/4 pounds) Salt and pepper
INSTRUCTIONS: Start heating the grill 30 minutes before removing the meat from the barbecue sauce.
Season the steak with salt and pepper and grill to desired doneness. Remove to a cutting board, cover, and let rest 10 minutes before serving.
To serve, slice the steak against the grain into 1/4-inch thick slices; serve with Stir-Fried Napa Cabbage Slaw. Serves 4. Note: When grilling the 2 steaks and the roulade at the same time, remember the thinner piece of steak will cook faster than the thicker piece and the roulade. When done, let the roulade and thinner piece of flank cool. Wrap well and refrigerate for later in the week.
