Mrs Tanaka’s Tuna and Potato Stir Fry
Skin and cut raw potatoes into little logs. Soak in slightly salted water, drain well, pat dry.
Open a can or 2 of tuna – I like the Coral brand in oil – but any brand will do.
Put a tablespoon of vegetable oil (or use the oil from the can of tuna) in a pan and stir fry the potato logs until almost cooked. At this point you can add ginger, garlic, or whatever you want. I usually keep it simple and don’t add anything.
Drain and add the tuna meat from the can. Add mirin or brown sugar (about 1 TBS or more) and soy sauce (about 2 TBS or more). Optional: add a tsp of hon dashi or saimin base powdered seasoning.
Using a wooden spatula, mix from the bottom gently, let simmer for a few minutes.
Serve with hot rice and enjoy!
