Nikujaga, Japanese mom's cooking
Nikujaga means meat and potato. Thinly sliced beaf is mainly used in western Japan, though pork is often used in eastern Japan. My family has come from eastern Japan, but only beaf is in general use at my home.
Nikujaga is consisting of sliced meat, potato, carott and Shirataki (noodle-like food made from the konjac yam) simmerd with soysauce, sugar and Sake and put boiled French bean on the top.
