Beef sauté bites with rice (ひとくち牛肉のせライス)

Here in Switzerland there are often “apéro” parties. It’s like a drinks party with nibbles, and is normally standing style, it’s more casual than sitting at a table. The word “apéro”, the food and the style might be translated as “otumami” in Japanese. But there are many different cultures, it can not be translated exactly. Otumami is usually accompanied with alcohol. It’s normally a salty nibble, it could be vegetable, fish, meat or egg, but not usually with rice.

I often see “sushi” is at apèros, but with rice is rarely used for apèros in Japan. So this is an idea for another nibble with rice for apéros.

The red ginger is Beni-shôga (紅生姜:べにしょうが). It has a sour taste. It works very well with this beef recipe, as does the colour.
