Kinpira Gobo (Sauteed burdock root with carrot)

A very popular dish in Japanese homes and restaurants!

Ingredients (serves 4)

1/2 burdock root

1/2 carrot

100g thin-cut beef

1 tbsp sesame oil

1 tbsp sake (or white wine)

1 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp sugar

1 tbsp white sesame

A little vinegar and red chili pepper


1. Carefully wash the burdock root and carrot, and scrape off the skin with a knife.

2. Shave off slices of burdock root and carrot and drop into a bowl filled with 3 cups of water and a little vinegar. Let soak for 5 minutes to remove the bitterness.

3. Cut the beef into thin strips.

4. Heat the sesame oil in a pot and stir-fry the ingredients, starting with the meat. Once everything is coated in oil, add the sugar and sake (wine) and simmer over a low heat.

5. Once the vegetables are tender, add the soy sauce. Mix well to distribute the flavor, and finish off with a little chopped chili.
