serves 5 as a side My families take on the japanese dish “Niku-Jaga” 肉じゃが as we dont use meat. Niku stands for meat and jaga is short for “Jagaimo” which means white potato. This is a common side dish you will seen eaten in most Japanese households. SImple ingredients, but packed with flavour. You might be shocked by the amount of onions, but they contribute to the sweetness of the dish, and go incredibily well with rice.
- 2 carrots - 4 potatoes - 4 onions - 5 tbsp soy sauce - 4 tbsp sweetner of choice - 1 tbsp tsuyu *
*mentsuyu is a noodle dipping sauce which is basically a infused soysauce with dashi (broth), mirin and sake. You can dillute it with water to make a quick soup, or even use it as a seasoning as I do in this recipe. you can easily buy it at your local asian supermarket, amazon or even make it yourself!
