This is a recipe I really like

Japanese Beef Stew

Carole's Chatter: Japanese Beef Stew

My better half is being very patient with my current enthusiasm for experimenting with Japanese flavours.  I hope you'll put up with it as well.


Blade steak cut into chunks
Vegetable oil
1 cup of dashi (made with dashi powder and hot water)
½ cup of sake  or mirin
1 slice of red onion
1 lump of rock sugar
3 tblsp soy sauce (preferably Japanese)
Herbs for garnish

Carole's Chatter: Japanese Beef Stew


Brown the beef in batches
Add the onion
After a couple of minutes add the dashi, mirin and rock sugar.
Simmer the beef for one hour.
Steam the potatoes and carrots – I used a microwave steamer – the potatoes and carrots were sliced.
When they are done and after the hour, add the potatoes and carrots to the beef.  Then add the soy sauce. Simmer for 3 minutes and finish with a garnish of herbs just before serving.
