"I talk about the gods, I am an atheist. But I am an artist too, and therefore a liar. Distrust everything I say. I am telling the truth."

Experiments in sauce

Today's cooking experiment: to see if I can make sukiyaki using the too-tough leftover chinese (ginger beef, to be precise) and no mirin.

Sauce: Two pan-filling splashes of vodka, about a quarter cup of honey and four spoons of sugar when the pan-filling splash of soy turned out to be a bit strong.

Simmer for... well, we're at about half an hour now. Until the beef tenderizes a bit?

TBC

Looks like an hour and a half to two hours about does it. Note to self: lower heat next time; vodka cooks off fast. Also, stir every ten minutes or so.

But it seems to be working!
