It only takes 20 minutes to prepare and cook!? It looks gorgeous even though it's easy to make! It's well-flavored, so I recommend having it with rice and sake. You can make it the night before for a bento, too!
Thinly slice the vegetables. It's okay to eyeball the sizes. I used fresh potatoes, so I just washed the skin.
Stir fry the meat to about 80% done in an oiled pan, then add sugar and cook thoroughly. Then, add the soy sauce and sake to season. Add green peppers and potatoes and continue stir-frying (over about medium heat).
Once the green peppers and potatoes are lightly cooked, taste test and, if the flavor is weak, add the ★ ingredients, stir-fry a bit, and you're done! Cook until the sauce is thick!
Story Behind this Recipe
Since I was young, my mother made this for my bento using meat and shishito peppers. When I tried making it with green peppers and potatoes, it was just as delicious! It's cooked thoroughly and is preserved in soy sauce, so it lasts and is also great for bentos.
Using shishito peppers instead of green peppers is tasty, too! If you use shishito peppers, fry thoroughly beforehand to get rid of the bitter flavor! Please stir-fry the meat and shishito peppers with plenty of sauce. It's more delicious with Japanese beef, but if you use imported beef, use Japanese beef fat by cutting it into small chunks (which you can get at a butcher) and stir fry. The taste becomes milder.
