Now, let’s get into the details of how to make Gyutan Tororo Mugi-meshi. This recipe serves four people.
Step 1: Marinating the Beef Tongue
The first step is to marinate the beef tongue. In a large bowl, combine the beef tongue, garlic, soy sauce, sake, and mirin. Mix everything together, making sure that the beef tongue is fully coated in the marinade. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it marinate for at least 30 minutes.
Step 2: Cooking the Beef Tongue
Once the beef tongue has marinated, it’s time to cook it. In a large skillet or wok, heat 1 tbsp. of oil over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the beef tongue and cook for about 5 minutes. Make sure to stir the meat frequently to prevent it from sticking to the pan. Once the beef tongue is browned and cooked through, remove it from the pan and set it aside.
Step 3: Preparing the Rice
Next, it’s time to prepare the barley rice. If you’re not familiar with barley rice, it’s a type of Japanese rice that’s been mixed with barley. It has a nutty flavor and chewy texture that pairs perfectly with the beef tongue.
Cook the barley rice according to the instructions on the package. While the rice is cooking, grate the Japanese yam using a grater or food processor. Place the grated yam in a bowl and set it aside.
Step 4: Combining the Ingredients
Once the rice is cooked, add the beef tongue to the skillet or wok. Pour in 1 cup of water and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and let the mixture simmer for about 10 minutes. Add the grated yam to the pan and mix everything together.
When the yam has cooked down and is no longer raw, add the cooked barley rice to the pan. Mix everything together until the rice is fully coated in the sauce and the beef tongue and yam are evenly distributed throughout the dish. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently.
Step 5: Serving the Dish
