A Japanese Potato Recipe

This is a typical " mother's taste" meal in Japan which I have learned from my Mother-in-law. It is served with a bowl of white rice and miso soup. My Mother-in-law taught me how to cook when we were still living with them for 3 years due to my husbands' work. You may find ( again ) the ingredients to your asian supermarkets.

Ingredients: ( good for 4 persons )
beef /pork sirloin - 100g, thinly sliced
4 potatoes
1 onion
1 carrot
shirataki noodles ( yam noodles ) - 1/2 pack
8 snow peas
4 tbsps soy sauce
4 tbsps sake
1 tbsp sugar
2 cups dashi soup stock
2 cups water
1/8 cup katsuobushi (dried bonito flakes)

1: Make dashi soup stock.(Put water in a pan and heat on medium heat. Just before the water boils, add katsuobushi flakes. When the water boils, stop the heat and strain the broth.) You can use the instant dashi powder( 1 tbpsp dashi powder plus 2 cups of water ) if you want.
2. boil shirataki noodles, set aside
3: Cut beef or pork slices and vegetables into bite-sized pieces. Boil snow peas lightly and set aside, or you can you use the frozen one,thawed if use.
4: Put oil in a pan and sauté the meat quickly. Add potatoes, carrots and shirataki noodles in the pan and sauté them together.
5: Add dashi soup stock, soy sauce, sake, and sugar in the pan and simmer for 10 min on medium heat.
6: Add onion in the pan and simmer on low heat until the liquid are almost gone.
7: Sprinkle snow peas over the simmered beef and potatoes.
8: Serve with hot rice, miso soup and salad.

Enjoy your meal! :)
