Nikujaga Meat and Potato Stew

Nikujaga Meat and Potato Stew

This is just normal nikujaga, although a little on the sweeter side compared to the standard sweet and savory seasoning.

Ingredients: 3-4 servings

Thinly sliced pork (or beef)
150 g
4 large
1 large
1 small
Green beans or snow peas
half a pack
1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon
Soy sauce
2.5 tablespoons


1. Cut the meat, carrots, and green beans into easy-to-eat pieces. Cut the onion into chunks.
2. Cut the potato into large chunks and soak in water. If you have the time, smooth out the surfaces of the potatoes so that they look nicer.
3. Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan and cook the meat. Once the meat has cooked, add the onion and lightly stir-fry. Then add the seasoning ingredients.
4. Add the potatoes and carrot and mix it all together. Add 150 ml of water, cover with a lid, and let it simmer on medium heat for 15-20 minutes (stir it around a few times while cooking).
5. Add the green beans just before you turn off the heat.
