Friday, Satoshi called me to say he wouldn't be needing dinner...boo!
I wasn't in any mood to cook after that call, so I boiled some pasta and heated up this sauce.
It was a gyu-suji (beef gristle) carbonara by Ryu-ryu, a well known pasta place in the Kobe-Osaka area. The gristle is simmered in a shoyu-sugar sauce until tender.
Combine that with a cheesy cream sauce....different, right?!
I topped this with some broccoli and some colored peppers just because I needed some veggies...
I really liked this. The sauce was on the salty side and the beef on the sweet side. Definitely not something to eat all the time, just in a pinch.
