Heat up a small soup pot on medium heat and add the oil. When the oil is heated, add the onion, stirring a few times before adding the meat. Stirring and cooking, then add the carrots and potatoes. Stir to combine well with the meat.
Add the water and bring it to boil. Add the soy sauce, sake, mirin and sugar. Lower the heat, cover the pot and simmer until the carrots and potatoes are cooked through and the sauce reduces. Add the Shirataki noodles, cook for 1 minute. Add salt and the scallions. Turn off heat and serve immediately.
If you can't find Shirataki noodles, feel feel to skip it.
