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.
To those wondering about the 1/4 lb of beef: that MIGHT be the intended measurement. Nikujaga is not meant to be a hearty beef stew. Rather, the bulk of the dish is supposed to be the potatoes, while the beef is there merely to flavor the broth.
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!
