    Goldie174's Note:

    My friend's mom owns a yakiniku resteraunt but she also cooks various other foods. This is her chahan recipe. She really uses chashaorou (chaashuu) but I don't know the word in English, but she said Bacon is okay too. If you like green peas, you can add 2 tbsps. (I don't like green peas, that's why I didn't add them into the ingredients list). Use how ever much olive oil, salt, and pepper you think you need.

      Instead of using bacon, the meat you may be thinking of is an Asian sausage called (phonetically) Lup Chong. You can generally find it at an Asian grocery. In place of the Sake, which I will try, I was taught to use Rice Wine Vinegar and sugar, and also to add a little Safron, and then to fry it in Peanut Oil. A lovely Japanese woman gave us her restaurant recipe back in the early 70s, and it has been a favorite from day 1.

      Really good recipe. Very simple, quick, and yummy. For my personal tastes however, I wanted a little stronger flavor. I added a splash of good quality dashi and it was perfect. (A flavorful chicken stock or veggie stock would make decent dashi substitutions if you have that on hand instead...that's what the teppanyaki place in the States I used to work at always did.) Thanks for posting this one!
