Garlic Beef

Nira (chives), garlic, and beef taste very good together! Many Japanese believe that garlic gives you strength, so I prefer to make this recipe if I'm feeling tired! It is good with steamed rice and also I like to eat it wrapped in lettuce with some chili sauce.

Yield: 2 servings
Time: 15 minutes

  • 1/2 lb sliced beef (sukiyaki beef, chopped into 3" pieces)
  • 1/4 lb chives (chopped into 2" pieces)
  • 1/4 lb bean sprouts
  • 1 shironegi (thick green onion, or regular green onion if you can't find it)
  • 2 cloves of garlic (sliced thin)
  • 1 clove of garlic (minced)
  • 2 tbps soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp sake
  • 2 tbsp mirin
  • 2 tsp chicken soup powder
  • dash salt and pepper
  • ground sesame (optional)
    1. Mix spices (soy sauce, sake, mirin, chicken powder and ground garlic) in a bowl
    2. Heat the oil and sliced garlic in a frying pan then cook green onion for 2 minutes over medium heat. Add beef, sprinkle salt and pepper, then transfer beef to a dish when it is cooked through
    3. Add nira, bean sprouts, and mixed spice in a frying pan. Cook for 3 minutes over medium heat
    4. Return beef to the pan, mix and cook for an additional 1 minute
    5. Serve with sprinkled ground sesame (optional)
