Beef udon recipe

I have made this dish a couple of months ago when I caught myself reminiscing about my recent trip to Japan. I loved how Japanese food often tends to be simple but still packed full of flavour. Recipe adapted from Nami from Just One Cookbook (favourite site for Japanese recipes!)

Stock Ingredients:

2 cups dashi
1 tbsp mirin
1 tbsp soy sauce

Bring stock to boil and adjust taste with salt or extra soy sauce if needed.

For beef
1 tbsp soy sauce
230g of thinly sliced beef (lean cuts preferrably)
1 tbsp oil
1/2 scallion thinly sliced and roughly sliced to about 3cm in length
2 servings of packaged udon noodles

1. Heat a pan with oil and cook the scallion until it is tender.
2. Add meat and allow to nicely sear all round. Add 1/2 tbsp of sugar and 1 tbsp of soy sauce. Allow the mix to caramelize and thicken. Turn off heat at this stage
3. Prepare udon noodles according to packaging. Mine just involves soaking it in warm water until it softens.
4. Place noodles in a bowl, top with the prepared slices of beef, garnish with thinly sliced pieces of scallion and add broth. Serve immediately.
