Taco Rice : Naoko-sensei’s Japanese Recipe No. 27【なおこ先生の日本料理 27】タコライス|英語レシピ


This time on this Naoko-sensei’s recipe corner, we will be introducing a popular Okinawan dish “taco rice.”  It consists of taco-flavored ground beef served on a bed of rice. It was invented in the 1980s by Matsuso Giho, an owner of a restaurant called “Parlor Senr” in Kincho where Camp Hansen is located. The delicious fusion of Tex-Mex and Japanese cuisines with flavorful taco fixings can be a comfort food for both Japanese and Americans. For taco meat, you can replace it with your recipe.

1.Prepare 1.5 gou cup (225g) of rice. Add a dash of turmeric in the rice and steam it with appropriate amount of water. It’s 300cc or 10 oz, but we recommend you put a little less water to make the rice bit harder.

Be careful for adding turmeric too much. A dash is enough to color rice. ターメリックの入れすぎに注意!ひと振りでも十分、色がつきます。

3. Chop maitake mushrooms, onion, garlic into fine pieces.
