Mexican Beef meets Japanese Shirataki

These ‘yam cakes‘ have been a revelation. You can do all SORTS of things with them ! BUT. Can you do cross them with a Mexican-style Taco Filling, in the true spirit of Mexican Japanese Fusion cuisine? Well, here to the left is a yam cake, sliced into flat fat noodles topped with…

Mexican chipotle beef taco-filling


1 red onion
bell pepper
3 garlic cloves
extra lean ground beef
seasonings (green chile, chipotle, basil, paprika, salt, pepper, and red chili)
soy sauce


1. Chop and fry 1 big red onion and a chopped bell pepper, add a chopped leek; when browned, add a lot of sliced mushrooms and 3 chopped garlic cloves.

2. Throw in extra lean ground beef – 200g a person – season with green chile, chipotle, basil, paprika, salt, pepper, red chili) and then sprinkled with soy sauce.

Sounds strange? It’s a type of Japanese-meets-Mexican-,-both-go-crazy type of thing.
