Ofukuro no aji -- Mom's cooking: This is a typical Japanese dish served at
dinner. The main ingredients are russet potatoes, onions, and beef. The
flavoring is based on soy sauce and sugar, very common for a Japanese dish.


   * 1 lb. russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 4 to 5 pieces each
   * 1/3 lb. beef, thinly sliced
   * 2/3 lb. yellow onions, sliced (about 1/3 inch wide)
   * 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
   * 400 cc water (about 1 1/2 cups)
   * 3 tablespoons or more soy sauce (to taste)
   * 3 tablespoons or more brown sugar (to taste)
   * 2 tablespoons sake or white wine


Prepare vegetables as described above. Heat a deep pan and add oil and beef.
Saute for a couple of minutes, then add onion and potato. Continue sauteing
for 3 minutes. Add water, soy sauce, brown sugar, and sake or wine. Bring to
a simmer half covered. Skim off any foam and cook for about 20 to 30 minutes
until potatoes are done.
