Submitted by: SUNNY112358

Introduction

This is a winter favourite in Japan, both as part of a main meal and as a savoury accompnaniment to sake.
For an authentic touch, sprinkle with bonito flakes.
If you cannot find mirin you can substitute sake with a little sugar, or use sherry. If you cannot find dashi granules you can substitute chicken bouillon cubes.

Directions

Prepare daikon and arrange in a single layer in a very large saucepan or lidded frying pan. Add seasonings and just enough water to barely cover. Bring to a boil, covered, then turn heat down to a gentle simmer. After 30' turn all the slices, and simmer a further 30' or until tender and translucent. Towards the end of cooking time the stock may have boiled away, so watch it does not burn. Try not to add any water so the flavour remains concentrated.
