YASAI ITAME (My Version)
Yasai Itame is the Japanese word for stir-fried vegetables. Yasai denotes vegetables while Itame” means stir fry. My first order each time a chance to dine at Jap-Resto comes.
Truth is, the dish needs no recipe to follow at all. Any veggies peeping out of your ref or leftovers or any combination you desire can result to this prep.
Flex your muscle by tossing and turning this dish with thinly sliced pork, chicken, beef, seafood or veggies-all.
Infused a bit of Filipinism again to bolster my wish of having ultra healthy solid which my red still will push down-way to my tummy. I dare you to make it. Loved ones will love you more.
