Stir Fried Burdock and Konnyaku

It looks simple, but my kids love this dish with rich taste. Sweet and salty tastes will stimulate your appetite!

Ingredients: 4 servings

Burdock root
Garlic (finely chopped)
1 clove
Chopped red chile pepper (sliced)
1 chili pepper
A... water, sake
each 1/2 cup
2 tablespoons
1 tablespoon
Soy sauce
2 tablespoons
Rice vinegar
1 tablespoon


1. Scrape the skin of burdocks, cut them to 4 cm length and soak in vinegar water for 10 minutes. Cut the konnyaku in to the same size as the budocks and wash them in vinegar water.
2. Heat a pan with 1 tablespoon of sesame oil, garlic and red chile pepper, and cook them in low heat. When the nice aroma comes out, add 1, and stir fry them over medium heat.
3. When they get slightly browned, add A, and put the lid on to cook for 10 minutes. Add the sugar and cook another 5 minutes.
4. Pour soy sauce into 3, stir fry with medium to high heat. When the sauce has reduced, add the rice vinegar and keep cooking.
5. When the sauce is nearly gone, it is done.
6. I made this dish with burdock and carrots. The sweetness of carrots make the dish delicious.
