Another Nigel Slater recipe (can be found here), and one I'd been meaning to cook for a long time. Sake is one of my favourite drinks but I'd never cooked with it before, so wanted to give it a go.
This was a tasty dish - I used diced braising steak, but I could see it working well using whole pieces. I didn't think the flavour of the sake came through too well, but it did lend the dish a certain sweetness, which went very nicely with the soy sauce, shallots and pak choi. It made for a slightly different kind of stew. I served it with some rice.
