Rika's TOKYO CUISINE
Japanese-Style Stewed Beef
*This program was first broadcast on Dec. 25, 2015
In this episode, we'll be making Japanese-style beef stew. This simmered dish, beloved the world over, is particularly popular in Japan. Usually, stir-frying the ingredients first and then cooking them over low heat takes a lot of time and effort, but in Rika's hands, it's ready in just a moment's time. This dish's combination of delicious flavor and ease of cooking makes it perfect for guests. For our side dish, we'll be making a refreshing salad that combines the slight bitterness of shungiku chrysanthemum leaves with orange, and for dessert, Rika will be making a shortcake of her own devising that combines the best elements of sponge cake and chiffon cake.
