Kyou no Ryouri – Daikon no Soboro Ni

February issue of Kyou no Ryouri had a recipe for daikon no soboroni. It looked simple enough. It said time to cook was 15 minutes. Well, it lied. It took me 1 hour. Also, I don’t know how to convert metric to imperial and vice versa. I guessed on the amount of meat needed (1 package) and the amount of daikon (1/4 of what I bought). I’ll have to memorize the weight conversion numbers. Maybe invest in a small food scale soon, too.

Daikon no Soboro-Ni

– 1/4 Daikon (~200g)
– 150g Ground Beef
– 1 cup Dashi (goes into sauce A)

Mix together ingredients from sauce A into one. Set aside.

1.) Peel and cut daikon into rectangular blocks about 7~8mm wide and 3~4cm long.
