Nikujaga Beef Stew with Wasabi
Beef | Contains Gluten | Contains Dairy | Spicy
There is a Japanese expression affectionately known as ofukuro no aji—it evokes simplicity and usually refers to a home-cooked meal prepared by a loved one. Nikujaga, a sweet and savoury stew, is an iconic comfort food synonymous with Japanese home cooking. This is my version of a hearty Japanese beef stew with wasabi to add heat and impart warmth, just like mom’s cooking!
