Looking for a Japanese recipe


Recommended Posts

Many years ago, I had a dish served by a Japanese lady, who gave me the recipe. I haven't made it in years, and can't find the recipe, but it is soooo good! I might can make it work with what I am finding through searches, but nothing is quite right.


It calls for flank steak, which is then marinated in a combo of (I think) these ingredients, but I don't know if this is all of them, and I don't know the amounts:

cooking sherry (or was it white wine?)


soy sauce

green onions


It was then dredged in flour and fried. When done, you cut it diagonally into strips. It is delicious hot or cold. I first had it served at a potluck, where it wasn't cold or hot, and I could hardly leave it alone.

Well, it isn't either one of these completely. Sort of like the marinade for the gyudon then cooked like the gyukatsu. Only it looked more appetizing than the recipes for the gyukatsu that I found. But that is a start--thanks! :)


ETA: I may just have to wing it this first time, and see what happens.

It does sound more like a katsu style prep to me. I've only had it as chicken or tonkatsu (pork) but I've never made it myself.



Yeah, I've made it with chicken or pork and I'd never choose to use beef.  It's fabulous with pork! 


I really enjoy  gyudon but I don't think that's what she was describing either.  But it's beef and has the flavors she described.  


Great. Now guess what I want for dinner!
