COOK - 薯仔煮牛肉(肉じゃが) Japanese-Style Braised Beef with Potatoes

聽日就係情人節,好多男女都在苦惱如何跟另一半慶祝才能表達對對方的愛意。出街食必然是貴,没預先凖備也可能訂不到位。在家煮心型牛扒?Hmmm...上年已整過。
在日本,和我們有點不一樣,2月14日是女性向心儀對像表白的日子,只有女性向男子送朱古力。而如果收禮的男性也有同感的話,便會在一個月後的白色情人節3月14日回禮給該女子,那就開始交往了!
但若已交往了一段時間,最溫馨就是在家煮幾道菜。 而調查發現"男人最想女友做的10道菜"TOP 3,就是薯仔煮牛肉(肉じゃが) 了。日本女仔通常第一次煮飯俾男友食,就學整呢個喇!因為易做又美味,又能帶給他媽媽的味道和家的感覺, 煮得好食,食飽求婚都話唔定☺


薯仔煮牛肉(肉じゃが)

北海道男爵薯仔  4個 (去皮,切半)
洋蔥  1/2個(切成1cm闊片)
紅蘿蔔 1小條(去皮,切不規則形狀,大小和薯仔差不多)
水 200ml
火鍋 牛肉薄片 200g
片裝苣蒻  半塊(搣成一口大小)
荷蘭豆 3片 (裝飾用)
醬油 2湯匙
味醂 1湯匙
料理酒 1湯匙
糖  1-1/2湯匙

1. 將薯仔,洋蔥和紅蘿蔔都切好。煎鍋燒熱下1湯匙油,將薯仔,洋蔥和紅蘿蔔放入炒香,使油都蓋在材料表面。加入牛肉片炒至粉紅色時就放入200ml水,當中的1湯匙醬油,味醂,料理酒和糖,加蓋煮滾。
2. 煮滾後開蓋會見到一些肉的油脂和泡沫浮在表面,用勺拿走。轉為中小火,加入苣蒻和剩下的1湯匙醬油和1/2湯匙糖,開蓋繼續煮至湯汁只剩下原來的一半,最後放入荷蘭豆,當煮至翠綠便可全部上碟。
*日本口味有可能會甜一點,可根據個人喜好調教糖和醬油的份量。
