Kombu to Gyuniku no Itamemono
This dish, known as the dish for longevity, comes from Okinawa prefecture at the very south of Japan.

- Heat the oil in a frying pan. Stir fry the garlic followed by the beef. When the meat has changed colour, remove from the pan and put to one side.
- Add more oil to the pan and stir-fry the kombu and vegetables. Once they are cooked, put the beef back in the pan and season with [A].
