It’s true I love Asian food. But for some reason I tend to steer towards Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese, Malaysian etcetera. This week however I stepped afield and added Japanese to my meal plan. We really don’t eat Japanese enough and surprisingly it doesn’t need to be difficult. I cooked the below recipe easily within thirty minutes. Which makes it perfect for a mid week meal. Now I have a few extra ingredients in my fridge I’m out to seek more Japanese recipes!

Note: – I used a combination of shimeji mushrooms and button. Mirin and Miso paste can be found in the Asian aisle at most good supermarkets.

Do you cook Japanese inspired meals? What is your favourite? Let me know!

    Hey Kat, looks delicious. I didn’t see beef in the ingredients and was wondering how much you used?

  2. Really enjoyed this. Was unable to buy Asian mushrooms at my local supermarket so only used button mushrooms.
