This has a wonderful flavor. I actually wanted even more broth and added another 3/4 cup of water. Also, I followed some of the reviews and added a can of mushroom at the last hour of cooking. Thank you!
Wow! This was one of the most delicious recipes I've made. I loved coming home to such a fragrant kitchen, and just grab bowls and eat. I didn't have sake, so used plain white wine, but will invest in sake soon to see if it's even better. Per one reviewer's suggestion, I upgraded the beef to chuck steak and it was tender and juicy. I added refridgerated udon noodles and mushrooms. Thanks !
This is a favorite and is always eagerly consumed by my co-workers. I do it the quick way by using a pressure cooker instead of a crock pot. Brown the meat in the open pressure cooker with a little oil, add the sauce, lock the lid and cook for 5 minutes. Release the pressure, add the vegetables and stir, lock the lid again and cook for another 5 minutes. Release the pressure, serve hot over rice and enjoy!
Maybe my crock pot is too hot, but using 1c of water (with the crock pot on high) resulted in my meat getting scorched. I had to use about 4c of water to rescue the dish. It does taste wonderful and reminded me a bit of sukiyaki.
Excellent! I omitted the salt and the sugar entirely, used low sodium soy sauce (because that's the only kind I use) & used dry white wine (because I didn't have sake) with beautiful results. A lot of reviewers commented on blandness, I added about 4 cloves of garlic and some ground black pepper and just a few drops of sesame oil. I was tempted to thicken it, but decided not to and was glad I didn't. This was warm, filling and flavorful. I cut the veggies in a large chunk and sliced the onions thin into rings, I also threw in a handful of frozen peas at the last hour of cooking for some pretty color. A really great fix it and forget it meal, thanks for sharing!
GREAT recipe! I added shittake mushrooms and to make this gluten-free, I used Gluten-Free Soy Sauce. Cooked on high and had a fabulous dinner!
So easy and so tasty! I left out the sugar (by mistake) and it was still really great. A nice gluten-free alternative. When served over fresh rice, you really don't need a thickened gravy. Unlike others I would have used MORE liquid in order to get more sauce.
Great stew/soup. I didn't have any sake or used 1 can of V-8 - just served as is with crackers. Thanks for sharing!
