Japanese Meat and Potato Stew (Nikujaga)

Serves 2-3 | Prep Time: 10 Mins | Cook Time: 20 Mins


1 tablespoon oil
2 oz onion, quartered
8 oz thinly sliced pork or beef
2 oz carrots
6 oz potatoes, cut into pieces
2 cups water or dashi (preferred)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons cooking sake
2 tablespoons mirin (Japanese sweet wine seasoning)
2 teaspoons sugar
4 oz Shirataki noodles or Konnyaku noodles, optional
Salt, to taste
1 stalk scallion, cut into 2-inch strips


Heat up a small soup pot on medium heat and add the oil. When the oil is heated, add the onion, stirring a few times before adding the meat. Stirring and cooking, then add the carrots and potatoes. Stir to combine well with the meat.

Add the water and bring it to boil. Add the soy sauce, sake, mirin and sugar. Lower the heat, cover the pot and simmer until the carrots and potatoes are cooked through and the sauce reduces. Add the Shirataki noodles, cook for 1 minute. Add salt and the scallions. Turn off heat and serve immediately.
