Once done, use two tablespoons of olive oil or canola oil to toss the meat and stir-fry until the pieces are visibly browned.

Have you tried Japanese Natto?

Natto is a unique grain that is fermented from soybeans and Natto sauce. It is an excellent source of protein, calcium, and is also a good source of phosphorous, iron, and vitamin B.

Natto is absolutely a delicacy that is prepared with thinly sliced, hand harvested glutinous soybeans. The result is a sticky, fibrous stringy substance that abounds in Asian cooking. Some people like to include it in recipes calling for tofu or other beans while others say Natto is best enjoyed on its own.

To cut down on natto, shake it up by pouring 1-2 tablespoons into a shaker with a half-cup of water and then tapping it lightly on your tongue. You will get great sensitivity and great reward. It is also good for your health.
