Japanese Carrots Wed, 04/14/04 11:09 AM (permalink)
Does anyone have a recipe for the carrots that are served at the Japanese Restaurants where they cook at the tables. I have tried to make these at home and just can't seem to get them to taste like those do.

    Here's what a google search turned up. Does this resemble what you were talking about? I've never seen these at Japanese restaurants before (but then, there's only 1 in town where I live, but they serve a great bean-sprout salad as a starter).....


    "Title: Japanese-Style Carrot Sticks
    Yield: 1

    Ingredients

          1 c  rice vinegar; (not seasoned)
        1/3 c  sugar
        1/2 ts salt
          1 lb carrots; cut into sticks

    Instructions

    In a saucepan cook vinegar, sugar, and salt over moderately high heat,
    stirring occasionally, until sugar is dissolved and mixture is hot. Put
    carrots in a heatproof ceramic or glass dish and pour vinegar mixture over
    them. Marinate carrots, covered and shilled, at least 4 hours and up to 1
    day.

    Makes about 4 cups.

      Thanks, But the carrots that I am talking about are served warm and served after the rice and chicken and mushrooms. They are sweetened almost like some type of sweetener coats them. The chef always turns a metal bowl upside down on the grill on top of them and lets them steam while he is cooking the rice and meat and other vegetables.
