Have you heard of a Japanese dish called "Nikujaga
"Niku" means meat and "jaga" means potato (the right word is "jagaimo"). It's not so well known as sushi or teriyaki chicken or tempura here in the states. But nikujaga is a very popular dish in Japan. We make it at home like 2 or 3 times a month with thinly sliced beef (have you heard of "shabu shabu
"? mmm yum yum). So I wanted to make it here. But it's hard to find thinly sliced beef except for thinly sliced ham or turkey ham or BACON! So I thought why not use bacon instead. And it was delicious!
Then I noticed something... My guests were not only enjoying eating the potatoes and bacon but also drinking the liquid like soup! We don't drink the liquid part. It's more like sauce. But, hey why not? It's yummy! So here I am posting Nikujaga soup!
