Japanese Beef Stew By Iron Cholent
This is an exceptionally easy stew to make. I weighed out the potatoes and substituted a like mass of baby potatoes (each one was small enough to fit into a cereal spoon). All you do is dice the onion, cube the meat, mix together the base (water, sake, sugar, soy sauce, and soy sauce), through it all in the crock put and cook.
2 lbs beef brisket
1 cup water
½ cup Japanese Sake
¼ cup sugar
¼ cup soy sauce
1 tsp salt
½ lb baby carrots
3 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 white onion, diced
Put everything in a crock pot, cook 10 - 12 hours on low, 4 to 6 on high.
Sensei and Takura are purported to have explicitly supervised sakes, but Star-K asserts that (unflavored) sake does not require certification. The London Bet Din asserts Choya Sake is kosher. Go figure....
