Chicken and Vegetable Shichiuu!
Say “stew” 5 times fast. Easy? Ok, now say “Shichiuu” 5 times fast. Not as easy. In Japanese, “stew” is pronounced “Shichiuu”. It’s been one of the most amusing borrowed English words for me to try and say. Shichiuu is a popular western food in Japan, usually prepared with an assortment of vegetables and beef or chicken, served over rice.
He made this cream stew with chicken, carrots, broccoli, corn, cabbage, kabocha (Japanese squash/pumpkin), and potato over pasta. I thought the kabocha was a tasty addition to the usual ingredients, adding a sweet taste. To complete the meal, he prepared a cabbage and tofu salad with sesame seed dressing. Yum!
