sirloin steak, thinly sliced
potatoes, cut into bite sized pieces
Overall it was pretty good but the measurements were way off. HAS to be a typo. 1/4lb of meat to serve 4??? I used a lil over 1lb and it even then it was swimming in the broth. After following the recipe, i added extra soy and sugar only because i thought the flavor was a little on the lite side. Overall good.** If you cant find dashi, beef broth/stock works just fine. My japanese mom happen to have some so i was able to get some from her.
After I cook this dish our Japanese foreign exchange student adds more sugar and soy sauce to taste (Kamada brand is the best!) Our family loves this recipe very much and it is even better w/several TBS more sugar and a few shakes more soy sauce.
So tasty! I have a Japanese foreign exchange student whose been missing the food from home. He loved this! So did everyone else who got to taste it. I upped the meat to 1.25 lb. otherwise, just as planned.
I had to substitute white wine for the sake and beef broth for the dashi, but this recipe was really good. Maybe next time I will be able to find the correct ingredients.
really, really good. I love Japanese dish's and this one is know one of my favorites. thank you very much for sharing.
Great recipe and not hard, even for someone like me who never cooks. The taste is really good, but i agree with everyone else about the measurements. You need at least a 1lb of beef for this. Also, I threw in carrots since i had them around.
This was yummy but too salty! Next time i will definitely cut down on the soy sauce!
I loved this dish! I really wanted something different, and I got it! I increased the amount of beef to one pound (yay meat!) and I did use beer instead of the sake but it still came out great. I made my own Hoshi-Shiitake Dashi (another Hinata recipe). My boyfriend asked for it again, so it's a winner. Thanks Hinata!
