Japanese Short Rib Stew

This short rib stew is inspired by a traditional Japanese comfort food dish, nikujaga, a stew made with either pork or beef and potatoes. I added a few more vegetables here to make it a more well-rounded dish.

Notes

Note: Make sure to trim the sharp edges off all the vegetables to make sure they don't fall apart when cooking.

Directions

Heat a deep sauté pan (at least 2 ½ inches tall) over medium heat, then add the sesame oil. Sauté the short ribs until slightly browned. Set aside. 

Drain the potatoes. Using the same pan, sauté the onion, carrot, daikon, and drained potatoes. When the vegetables become slightly brown, add the short ribs back to the pan. Add the dashi soup, sugar, and cooking wine and bring to a boil, about 3 minutes.

Drain off the excess cooking liquid, then add the soy sauce. Season with additional sugar and soy sauce, to taste. Place a lid on the top of the pan and simmer for 25-30 minutes over medium heat without stirring. Serve the stew in a bowl and garnish with the scallions.
