You can make it with Ito Konnyaku (or Shirataki) and other vegetables (such as carrots) but simple is better!!!



---------------------------------
Nikujaga (Stewed Beef and Potatoes)

Difficulty: Medium
Time: 1hr
Number of servings: 4

Ingredients:
800g (1.8lb) Irish Cobbler potatoes
200g (7oz.) thinly sliced beef
1 (200g=7oz.) onion
400ml water
4 tbsp. sugar
4 tbsp. soy sauce
8 frozen green beans *if you like

Directions:
1. Peel and cut potatoes into 4~6 pieces, then do Mentori (plane off the corners) to prevent it from crumbling during long cooking. Soak in water for 10 minutes (to prevent from changing color & remove starch). Change water if it becomes cloudy.
2. Slice onion into bite-size wedges and separate into pieces. Cut thinly sliced beef into bite size pieces if necessary.
3. Place potatoes and onions in a pot. Add water, then put on medium.
4. When it becomes to a boil, turn down to low, and remove the foam. Then simmer on low for 3 minutes until the onions become tender.
5. Add 2 tbsp. of sugar, tilt the pot to mix (do not mix with chopsticks or a ladle or the potatoes will become mushy), then simmer on low for 3 minutes.
6. Add 2 tbsp. of soy sauce, tilt the pot to mix, then add beef little by little. *adding the seasonings half at a time will let them soak well.
7. Put on medium, then remove the foam.
8. When the meat is no longer pink, add 2 tbsp. of sugar and 2 tbsp. of soy sauce (tilt the pan to mix), then cover with Otoshibuta (drop lid) and simmer on medium low for 10 minutes. *you can taste and add a bit more soy sauce and sugar if necessary.
9. When the potatoes are cooked, tilt the pot and cook until the cooking liquid is almost gone.
10. Serve on a dish, and garnish with cooked green beans if you like.

Irish Cobbler potatoes soak the flavor very well and won't become soggy.
May Queen potatoes are okay, too.
