    Beef Cutlet

    *This program was first broadcast on Jun. 24, 2016

    In this episode, we'll be introducing beef cutlets, a popular dish from the Kansai region, prepared in Rika's own style. This delicious dish consists of juicy world-famous wagyu beef, coated in crunchy breading to seal in the great flavor. The meat is cooked rare to bring out the best of the beef, and is served with a Japanese-style sauce made with soy sauce and wasabi. For our side dish, we will be making akadashi miso soup with summer eggplant and tofu. Akadashi is made with bean-based miso, giving it a distinct aroma that makes it a great palate cleanser for a rich and fatty main dish. Finally, at the Chef's Personal Corner, Rika will be making a salad with fragrant watercress, meaty mushrooms, and Rika's special dressing, to go perfectly with the beef.
