Nimono - simmered dish

This is one of my favourite... healthy meal, no oil needed. I love the one with bamboo shoots, lotus root, carrots, shiitake... yumm yumm..



  • 1/4 pound thinly sliced beef sirloin
  • 4 potatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 4 tbsps soy sauce
  • 4 tbsps sake (Japanese fermented, mildly alcoholic beverage made from rice. For muslims, ignore this / take out)
  • 4 tbsps mirin (sweet Japanese rice wine used especially in cooking. For muslims, ignore this / take out)
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 8 snow peas
  • 2 cups dashi soup


Cut beef slices and vegetables into bite-sized pieces. Boil snow peas lightly and set aside. Put oil in a pan and saute beef quickly. Add potatoes in the pan and saute them together. Add dashi soup stock, soy sauce, sake, mirin, and sugar in the pan and simmer for 10 min. on medium heat. Add onion in the pan and simmer on low heat until the liquid are almost gone. Sprinkle snow peas over the simmered beef and potatoes.
Makes 4 servings
