Gyusuji Nikomi is a Japanese dish made with beef tendons and konnyaku stewed for a long time until it is very tender and melts in your mouth.
- Prepare a pot with boiling water then add the beef tendons and beef brisket, bring back to a boil and continue for 5 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold running water scrubbing out any scum. Do the same thing with the konnyaku as well.
- Place beef tendons in a clean pot then around 4 cups of water and a bit of salt, bring to a boil then simmer in low heat for 1 1/2 hours.
- Add the beef brisket, carrots, konnyaku, dashi stock, sake, soy sauce, miso, sugar and mirin. Bring back to a boil then simmer in low heat for 45 minutes, bring. Bring back heat to high and simmer without cover, continue for 15 minutes or until the sauce becomes thick.
- Adjust taste with salt and sugar if needed, it should be a good balance of sweet and salty then turn off the heat.
- Place in serving bowls then sprinkle chopped spring onions on top.
Gorgeous dish with a nice unami flavors. This week super cold and windy and rainy and this is the perfect comfort dish. Sharing of course!
It’s rainy and dreary here today, so this would definitely perk me up! Great dish — thanks so much.
Have never had before this Japanese beef stew but it looks so good that I have to make it soon.
Anything that “melts in your mouth” gets my vote. Looks delicious!
That looks absolutely gorgeous.
