This time I would like to share very nice warm stew! Making this way doesn’t need to prepare stock to cook in. With golden brown sautéed bone in chicken and lots of vegetables can come out incredible flavor. You don’t have to go through complicating process. It’s basically French style dish but adding soy sauce and mirin can create complexity in flavor. Here’s another example of The western food with the eastern seasonings collaboration!
[ Ingredients ]
~ serves four ~
4 Chicken drum sticks
6~8 snow peas
100g Shimeji mushrooms
50ml White wine
3 tbs Soy sauce
2 tbs Mirin
some pinches Salt & Black pepper
3~4 Bay leaves
2 tbs Dijon Mustard
[ Directions ]
1. First prepare the vegetables. Cut carrot into small pieces by Rangiri method. Meaning,,roll carrot as you diagonally cut each time to create many dimensions.
2. Let onion stand upright and by using the tip of knife, remove the core.
3. You can cut into large dices.
4. Potatoes can be also cut into large piece.
5. And then trim off the edge.
6. If you are not used to do this with a knife, you can use a peeler!
7. Trim off the roots from the white shimeji mushrooms.
8. You can use your hands to take all stems apart.
9. This time I’m using snap peas. Discard stems with a small knife.
10. Blanch them until your preferred texture.
11. I chose bone-in chicken thigh. It’s very suitable for stewing. Slit the surface to expose the bone inside.
12. Sprinkle some salt and pepper and rub in.
13. In a Preheated pot add a little amount of oil and place chicken.
14. evenly sauté the surface until golden brown.
15. Remove from the pot and put them aside.
16. With the remaining chicken oil, sauté all the cut vegetables.
17. Mushrooms tend to absorb lots of moisture. you can add some butter and keep stir frying.
18. After stir frying until all the vegetables get golden brown, put back the chicken.
19. Add white wine..
20. Pour in water and add some herbs. This time I used bay leaves.
21. Add salt and black pepper and Simmer it for 30~45 minutes. Serving with Dijon mustard could be even better!
