Sliced beef in soy gravy is a delicious recipe which goes well with plain rice. Here we used the ginger as a garnish, but feel free to add it to the other ingredients while cooking so that it can make the meat tastier.
It is important to slice the beef thinly so that it cooks at the same time as the potatoes and carrots. You may also fry the vegetables ahead of time until they are browned before adding them, so that they are crisp on the outside but soft on the inside.
1lb. sirloin steak
4 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 medium sized carrots, peeled and sliced
1 medium white onion, peeled
2 tablespoons oil
2 cups basic dashi stock
3 tablespoons sake
2 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 inch piece ginger, shredded
Freeze the steak for 2 30 minutes and then cut across the grain to make very thin slices.
Soak the potatoes in a bowl of cold water after slicing.
Next, quarter the onion. Set aside.
Place 1 tablespoon of oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions, carrots and the potatoes. Stir-fry them for 2 minutes or until they are coated in oil.
Pour in the dashi stock, sake and sugar into the saucepan. Set the heat to high. Bring it to a boil.
After, put the beef in the pan. Add the soy sauce. Cook it for 15 minutes or until the beef and potatoes are tender.
Transfer it to a bowl a serving plate or individual bowls. Garnish with shredded ginger before serving.
