Top Review by Rinshinomori

This is indeed something ofukuro makes throughout Japan with some variation. Added a bit of sake and for color julienned carrots right before serving. This dish is perfect accompaniment to steamed white rice. Did not use cornstarch or optional water - did not need it. Thank you for posting. Made for Asian forum tag game Unrated Asian Recipe Cookbook.
