    Rinshinomori's Note:

    This style of dish in Japan is called yasai okazu (vegetable side dish) perfect for eating with steamed white rice. It is very easy to make and provides very wonderful textural feel to your teeth. It's hard to describe it in English. In Japanese, it's called hagotae (to the teeth - like al dente feel to the Italians). This dish is great with steamed white rice. If you are a vegetarian, omit ham and increase tofu pockets (aka aburaage) to 4-5 slices. The taste of this dish is predominantly green pepper and sesame sauce and deleting ham does not affect the taste much.
