Japanese Meat and Potato Stew
Japanese Meat and Potato Stew (Nikujaga) – hearty stew with meat and potatoes. This Japanese comfort food is delicious for colder months.
This time of year, I crave homey comfort food such as Asian soups and stews to keep me warm. I love the idea of a slow-cooked meat and potato dish, with liquid. This Japanese meat and potato recipe or Nikujaga fits the bill. Nikujaga is a very common winter dish in Japan. It’s such a delightful dish to eat, with a bowl of piping hot steamed rice.
I first had Nikujaga at a Japanese restaurant. I was instantly hooked on the sweet and savory taste. Thanks to the Japanese store near my house, I was able to get all ingredients easily and I have been making it for a few years. I am so glad that finally I get to share my recipe with you. If you love meat and potatoes, shake things up in your kitchen and try it. This is absolutely delicious and I can assure you that your family would enjoy it.
