Stir Fried Beef – Japanese Inspired

© Fresha-licious : Stir Fried Beef – Japanese Inspired

After posting 2 Japanese inspired recipe, I thought of posting another one.  A Japanese inspired almost-beef-gyudon-like beef dish.  This is an invention of Marco (Sarmiento).  Like the beef gyudon, this also tastes sweet but a bit saltier than a beef gyudon. By the way, the Sarmiento family (Marco and Airene and their kids) are more into sweet and sometimes salty dishes  At the moment though, I’ve noticed that they are trying to moderate their sodium intake 🙂

See my recipe of beef gyudon  – Gyudon- Japanese Beef Bowl



Beef, sliced thinly – 300 g.
Carrots, sliced thinly and in strips – 1 medium
Onions, sliced into rings – 1 large
Garlic, minced – 5 cloves
Soy Sauce
Sweet Sauce
Ground pepper and salt to taste
Water – just enough to cook the beef
Vegetable oil

Cooking Procedure:

1.      Heat oil and sauté garlic, then onion, then the beef strips.  Let it simmer for a minute.
2.      Add the water and soy and cook the beef until it is tender.  Add the sweet sauce and ground pepper and stir.  Then add the carrots and let it simmer until most of the liquids have evaporated
Serve like the Japanese does with their beef gyudon – rice in a bowl then topped with the beef dish J
By the way, belated Happy birthday to the “inventor” of this dish (April 12)
