Today's dinner

Today's dinner is hamburger steaks, which is my most favorite dish among all dishes made by my wife. I know westerners like to dip them with tomato ketchup or demiglace sauce but many Japanese including me like to use ponzu sauce ( say sauce with citrus juice ) and grated daikons.
I grated the daikon radish which I harvested and mixed it with ponzu sauce.
The sauce is so refreshing that it goes well with many oily dishes like beef steaks or grilled fish and we make the sauce whenever we eat those kinds of dishes. If you can get ponzu sauce around you, I recommend you make the sauce.









My wife made salt-pickled turnips. The recipe is just slicing turnips, soaking them with saltwater for 1 hour. If dried konbu ( dried kelps ) is available, i recommend you add it to the soaking water since delicious broth come out of the kelp.
