    Rinshinomori's Note:

    Usage of wine comes from living in the Bay Area. Feel free to use either white or red wines instead of both. If you do not have sake, you can sub white wine. You can purchase shichimi togarashi which is a Japanese 7 spice pepper mixture often used in soups, meats, and veggies. You can also find a recipe in recipezaar by typing shichimi togarashi.

      We found this dish had nice beefy flavor, and the sauce was good, but we would have liked a little more spice. (I did not have, or make, shichimi togarashi since it was optional, so that may be the problem). I will make this again, adding garlic and ginger - though I don't know if that's authentic. And may try making the spice mix. So won't assign stars til then. This dish was also super easy to make - a great weeknight supper. Served with a spinach salad.
