Just one frying pan and you can easily make KINPIRA!
KINPIRA is a Japanese cooking style that can be summarized as a technique of “sauté and simmer”.
It is commonly used to cook root vegetables and even meat.
You can always find water-boiled lotus root at Tokyo Mart at a reasonable price. No need to spend time just cutting it.
If you are short on time, I recommend using lotus root, as it is easy to soak up the flavor.
If it is boiled in water, it will last for a long time and can be bought and stored.
Ingredients （4 Servings）
- 1 Pack (5 oz) BOILD LOTUS ROOT

② Cut the carrots into strips.

⑤ When the carrots are cooked, add the SAKE, MIRIN, sugar and soy sauce.

📌 You can cook without oil if you use beef for the beef bowl which is full of flavor. Use 1 teaspoon of salad oil or sesame oil if you use meat with less fat.
📌 If you use lotus root boiled in water, there is no need to peel it and expose it to vinegar water. It is convenient to keep on hand in the refrigerator.
📌 You can substitute burdock for the lotus root, or make it without the meat.
📌 Mirin (sweet sake) and sake are good to add at the beginning of the cooking process because they help to remove odors.
