Dining With the Chef

Season 4, Episode 23 of 52

The theme for this episode is grilling. Chef Saito and Yu Hayami make yakiniku, or Japanese-style grilled meats, using beef, pork and chicken, served with three seasonings and three sauces, for all sorts of delicious combinations. Chef Saito demonstrates his skills by beautifully presenting the meat with plenty of fresh vegetables, as well as wasabi, ginger and umeboshi pickled plum, to give it a Japanese-style accent. They also make thick, hearty, and nutritious barley rice with grated yamaimo Japanese yam: they add rolled barley to rice before cooking it, to add plenty of nutrition and a nice firm texture, and then top it with thick grated yamaimo Japanese yam for a delicious way to beat summer lethargy.
