Cut the beef into several pieces. Cut the potatoes into bite-sized pieces. Cut the onion in half crosswise and then cut into wedges (kushigata-giri). Coarsely cut the carrots (ran-giri). Remove the stems and strings of the snow peas, boil in water, and cut diagonally (naname-giri).

Add the vegetable oil to a non-stick frying pan and fry the beef. Take it out of the pan and set it aside after frying. In the same pan, add the onions, potatoes, and carrots. Lightly fry and add the dashi. When it comes to a boil, add the sake, mirin, and sugar. Mix and add the soy sauce.

technique This dish uses beef. A loin cut with fat has about 90 kcal more energy than a round or rump cut without fat. Round and rump will have a dry, crumbly texture when it is overcooked, so after cooking, take it out of the pan and set it aside to keep the best taste and texture. If using new potatoes or new onions, which are softer, the cooking time will be shortened and the taste of the seasonal is nice.
