Simmered dish might sounds difficult to cook or sounds like you need long cooking time, but my recipe is absolutely EASY & QUICK!
My husband loves the simmered daikon that absorbed the taste well, so I often cook simmered daikon dish with miso.
Using a lot of daikon is healthier too, and you can actually add any kind of meat or tofu as a main material.
I like to use pork and chicken for this recipe, but instead of meat, I picked thick deep-fried tofu this time.
Please feel free to pick your favorite ingredient!
One more thing that I tried as a new style is using plenty of dried-bonito shavings.
Dried-bonito shavings are generally used for toppings. But it actually does great work for simmered food.
The step is very easy as I told you before, all you need is putting them in the saucepan then heat up.
In order to utilize maximally dried-bonito shavings, I used slightly more soy sauce than miso paste.
Please enjoy amazing stock from plenty of dried-bonito shavings!!
