Satsuma-Age and Leek Stir-Fry

Satsuma-Age and Leek Stir-Fry

This Japanese-style side dish goes well with rice.

Ingredients: 2~3 servings

Satsuma-age
4
Japanese leek
1
Bonito flakes
1 package (3g)
○Sugar
1 and 1/2 teaspoons
○Sake
1 tablespoon
○Soy sauce
1 tablespoon
○Mirin
1 tablespoon

Steps

1. Cut the satsuma-age and Japanese leeks into easy-to-eat sizes. Mix the ○ ingredients together.
2. Don't use oil if using a nonstick pan. Sauté the satsuma-age and then the Japanese leeks in that order. (Add in a bit of oil if necessary and then sauté.)
3. Add the ○ flavoring to step 2, along with the bonito flakes.
4. Sauté until the water had evaporated, then it is done!
5. This time I used a 4-pack of 5~6cm in diameter satsuma-age.
6. You can stir in an egg while there is still water remaining and enjoy as a rice bowl.

Story Behind this Recipe

I love Satsuma-Age, so I cooked it with Japanese leeks I had in the fridge.
