Niku-jaga

"Niku-jaga" (stewed meat and potato) is a representative home-style Japanese dish. Its origin is unique in that Admiral Heihachiro Togo, a Meiji-era naval officer, tried to reproduce the beef stew he ate when he was studying in the United Kingdom. Hiroshima Beef retains its tender texture even after stewed, and the flavor permeates thoroughly.
