Teba-daikon (stewed chicken wings and daikon radish)

Teba-daikon is one of the popular dishes often served at izakaya (Japanese style pub). It’s less expensive if you make it at home. Last night, I made it for my husband who loves chicken wings…

Ingredients: 10 chicken wings, 8 cm daikon radish, a slice of ginger, 2 eggs (optional), soy sauce, mirin, sake, sugar


  1. Peel and slice daikon radish in 2cm thick, then cut each slice in four. Boil them about 30 minites in a pot until soft.
  2. Once the daikon pieces are boiled, throw away the hot water from the pot. Pour water (about 1 litter) and add a slice of ginger. When the water is boild, add chicken wings, boiled eggs (optional) and 50 ml sake, 50 ml mirin, 70-80 ml soy sauce and 1.5-2 tbsp of sugar (adjust the amount of seasonings as you like).
  3. Simmer 20-30 minutes.
