Sautéed Spicy Konnyaku Seasoned with Oyster Sauce, Mayonnaise, and Bonito Flakes

Sautéed Spicy Konnyaku Seasoned with Oyster Sauce, Mayonnaise, and Bonito Flakes

Even though this is a konnyaku dish, it goes well with rice. The bold flavor makes it a good side dish with drinks, too!

Ingredients: 1-2 servings

Konnyaku
1 slab (250 g)
Bonito flakes
1 packet (about 2 g)
● Oyster sauce
1 tablespoon
● Mayonnaise (low calorie)
1 tablespoon
● Soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon
● Cooking sake
1 teaspoon
● Garlic, grated (optional)
1/2 clove
Red chili pepper
1/2-1

Steps

1. Rub the konnyaku with your hand (or pound with a rolling pin) to soften. Once it's soft, use a knife to cut a fine lattice pattern on the surface. (If too much trouble, omit this step.)
2. To make the shredded konnyaku: tear the konnyaku with your hands, or use a spoon to cut. (Rough cross sections allow the flavors to be absorbed better.)
3. Boil the konnyaku bits to remove the smell. Drain in a colander.
4. Combine the ● ingredients and mix well. I recommend adding garlic, but it is optional.
5. Dry roast the konnyaku from Step 3 in a frying pan. Add oil to the frying pan, then add de-seeded red chili pepper, and sauté well.
6. Reduce heat, then add the mixed ingredients from Step 4 to evenly coating the konnyaku. Sprinkle in bonito flakes, mix, then serve.

Story Behind this Recipe

Since I use a low-calorie, health-conscious mayonnaise, it doesn't melt when heated like regular mayonnaise, so I add it last.

With such tasty flavoring, you'll be able to eat a lot of konnyaku.
