When the Good Life teamed up with True Aussie Beef & Lamb for an evening at Graze Restaurant in La Ville, Chef Moritz Neumann created a showstopping feast that drew culinary inspiration from across the globe. Showcasing the pristine quality of Australian wagyu beef, his poke bowl with nori, edamame, cucumber, coriander and wasabi was a delicious expression of Hawaiian and Japanese influences.

200g shelled edamame, boiled
2 ripe avocados, cubed
Coriander, green onions and shredded nori seaweed, to serve
Sesame & soy dressing
3 tbs soy sauce
1 tbs rice wine vinegar
1 tbs toasted sesame oil
1 tbs granulated sugar

1) Stir together the mayonnaise and wasabi in a small bowl. Stir through steamed rice, then cover and chill until ready to use. 2) For the dressing, whisk together all the ingredients. 3) Add diced beef and toasted sesame to the sauce, and stir to coat well. Cover and keep chilled until ready to serve. 4) To assemble bowls, evenly layer each bowl with rice, marinated beef, cucumber, edamame, coriander, green onions, sesame seeds and nori.
