Western Style Green Pepper, Carrot, and Egg Kinpira

Yesterday, I was going to write my diary.
But again, I struggled with the booking stuff...
I mean, the plane ticket I was going to book online has disappeared.
I called the agency and they explained that they have changed the product rate recently.
They might again change the rate next week, so I was asked to go back at that time.
I hope not suffer from a nightmare.
Sometimes, I see a dream of my worries.
I think I should never play the market! Ha-ha!

Anyway, yesterday, 100th person made my Western Style Green Pepper, Carrot, and Egg Kinpira at Cookpad!
I explained about this function before.

Kinpira is a Japanese cooking style that can be summarised as a technique of "saute and simmer".
We usually cook root vegetables such as carrot, burdock and lotus root, seaweeds and other foods including tofu and namafu (wheat gluten) with the seasoning such as sake, mirin, sugar, and soy sauce.

However, I used green pepper and egg, which is unusual for kinpira, and used ketchup instead of sugar.
Also, I used sesame oil to add an appetizing flavor!
I released this recipe on 06/4/6.
I am glad to know that many people love this idea :)
The recipe is in Japanese, so I will translate it in English if anyone wants.

I will come back tomorrow if I'm doing fine!
See you!!!

  1. Looks like a very tasty dish Ochi!
    I make a lot of stir fry vegetables, and add meat. I know it is a Japanese tradition to add eggs, a wonderful idea. I'm sure Shitake mushrooms would be great in here too! My mom taught me some Japanese cuisine, love it and so does my daughter, and my sisters. Never thought to use ketchup instead of sugar, probrably a nice twist! Always hard planning a trip, stay calm it will all work out!

  2. Thanks for coming back! jo!
    Sure! Shitake mushrooms would be great!!! You know Japanese food very well :) I'm glad!
    You know what!? I will try to write this recipe in English someday around next week. Then you can try whenever you have time :)
    Regarding the plane ticket, I finally booked yesterday, but I still haven't booked the hotel... Other than that, I have a lot to think... I need to be organized with my thoughts. Thanks for your message!!!
