1. Beef Nikujaga


Nikujaga is traditionally a Japanese dish of meat, potatoes and onion stewed in sweetened soy sauce and mirin. However, you can give your dish a welcome kick with this sake-inspired Beef Nikujaga. This dish is easy to make with the Thermos® Food Jar and in only 5 steps you’ll have a cosy dish to enjoy.

2. Beef and Cheese Spaghetti


Embrace the Italian in you by boiling your spaghetti and adding minced beef with a tasty sauce. Have a go at your own homemade sauce too by following this simple recipe using the Thermos® Shuttle Chef® and you won’t be disappointed!

3. Galbitang Korean Beef Short Rib Soup


If your favourite cut of beef is the rib, then this soup is just the ticket! The key to this dish is the blanching stage where the beef is cleaned of any excess bits you don’t want. This will give you a smooth finish with aesthetically pleasing beef ribs in a tasty soup. And it’s all possible to create with the Thermos® Shuttle Chef®!
