Cooking Steps

[EXT LOW] 45 min

[MED] 15 min

[WARM 200ºF] 90 min


4” medium daikon, peeled, cut into 1” rounds and score each cut side
2 medium potatoes (330 g), peeled, cut into 4 pieces each
1 block (130 g) konnyaku (konjac), cut into 4 triangular pieces
½ piece (250 g) atsuage (deep fried tofu), cut into 4 triangular pieces
4 satsuma-age (deep fried fish cake)
4 small ganmodoki (fried tofu fritter)
2 pieces (110 g) chikuwa (fish cake), cut crosswise diagonally
4 hard-boiled eggs, peeled

Dashi Mixture
3 ¾ cups (900ml) dashi stock
7 tablespoons mirin (sweet rice wine)
5 tablespoons usukuchi (light color) soy sauce

  1. Add konnyaku, atsu-age, satsuma-age and ganmodoki in a boiling pot of water. Blanch for 20–30 seconds, drain and pat dry using paper towels. Set aside.

  2. Pour 2 tablespoons of water into the pot and lay daikon and then potatoes on top. Cover and simmer over [EXT LOW] heat for 45 minutes.

  3. Turn off heat, uncover and add in ingredients from Step 1, chikuwa, eggs and Dashi Mixture. Boil uncovered over [MED] heat for 15 minutes.

  4. Once steam starts to escape vigorously, simmer over [WARM 200°F] for 90 minutes. Serve hot with karashi mustard.

  • Blanching konnyaku and fish cakes will remove excess oil and help absorb more flavor from dashi.

  • Make sure to boil uncovered in Step 3 to keep dashi broth from boiling over.
