Have you ever had a chance to eat something cooked by a Japanese girl friend? If not, please request her to cook "NIKU JAGA". (I am sorry if you haven't found any Japanese girls who take care of you!)

"NIKU" JAGA is one of the traditional Japanese foods which a mother teaches her daughter, and the grandmother taught the mother, before that. It is Mom's home cooking. It is simple recipe with potatoes, carrots, and chopped beef, but it is important for her to inherit their original family tastes.

It is believed that if the wife can cook NIKU JAGA perfectly, the wife is accepted as a family member. So, cooking NIKU JAGA is the first examination for a Japanese lady after marriage.
