With Things on Hand

Pan-Fried Beef with Vegetables, page 457
Gyuniku Gomayaki


I made this meal with “things-on-hand” after a day of working at home. Mr. Tess had an evening meeting, so I didn’t make a complete Japanese dinner with soup and pickles and so on. This recipe, with its strong Western influences, is very simple and satisfying.

The most difficult part was to remember to take the beef out to thaw enough to slice thinly. Oh, and I ran around to the corner Korean store for bean sprouts.

When I make this again, I’ll take the beef out of the wok. My stir-fry technique resulted in the beef being cooked more than I like. Mr. Tess doesn’t like beef too rare, so he was satisfied when he got home. (^_~)
