  • 3 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of Sake (if any, otherwise wine)


  1. Put minced meat, egg, starch, wine, soy sauce, sesame oil, and fresh ginger juice into a bowl. Mix them until they become sticky.
  2. Add chopped onions to the bowl and mix them.

  3. Cut bell peppers lengthwise in half. Shift starch inside.
