My son loves Japanese food, he loves the culture, the language, and everything that smells like Japan
One day he came home and ask me to cook him some Japanese food, of course that I immediately went to the internet and started to look for a recipe with the ingredients that I already have in the house.
Lucky I found just the right one, from the blogger "No recipes"
- canola oil
- 1/2 small onion sliced
- 1 tsp minced ginger
- 1/3 lbs thinly sliced beef
- 1 carrot cut into small pieces
- 2 small potatoes peeled and cut into medium pieces
- 1/4 C sake
- 1/4 C water
- 2 Tbs soy sauce
- 1 Tbs sugar
- 1 scallion finely chopped
- Meyer lemon zest
Put some oil in a pan over medium heat and saute the onions and ginger until wilted and fragrant. Add the beef and fry until brown. Toss in the carrots and potatoes, sake, water, soy sauce and sugar.
Cover and turn down to the heat to a low simmer and cook, tossing a few times until the potatoes are soft. Serve topped with scallions and a little lemon zest.
I served over noodles.
