September Lunch: Braised Beef in Cream
August was particularly busy and fun as two of our biggest annual events, the Takimoto Summer and the Nobooribestu Jigoku Festivals, came and went. The very last days, though, saw the arrival of Typhoon #10 in Japan. While it caused serious damage in other parts of the country, in our part of Hokkaido it brought only strong winds and heavy rain.
One quick note, too, about the temperature of the onsen. Recently, a few trees fell, which caused some difficulty in accessing the natural spring water. The result was a slightly higher than usual water temperature, but the situation is taken care of as of this writing.
As September blows in on the tail of this typhoon, we would like to present this month’s lunch special at Takimoto Inn. Beef rib in Cream Sauce is a tender slice of beef simmered Japanese-style with sweet cabbage. The simple accents of rock salt and black pepper provide depth and balance for a dish that simply melts in the mouth. Served in a base of rich cream sauce it is a most satisfying autumn meal, especially when paired with fresh bread or rice.
