I bet you’ve never tried anything like this before! These tender melty daikon bites are a little sweet, salty and addictive!


  • 1 1/2 pound daikon (peeled and cut 2-inch thick discs)
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup dashi
  • 2 tablespoons mirin
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • a few slices American cheese
  • 3 stalks scallions (finely chopped)


  1. – Use a deep skillet and turn the heat to high. Add 1 tbsp butter, dashi, soy, mirin, sugar and bring to boil.
  2. – Add daikon and lower heat to a simmer. Cook for about 30 minutes uncovered, turn them over every 10 minutes, to coat evenly.
  3. – Test tenderness by sticking a for or knife in the center of a daikon piece. There should be no resistance.
  4. – By now, there should be little broth left and the daikon should begin to caramelize. Add the remaining 1 tbsp butter, stir welll (moving the daikon around).
  5. – Add a small square of cheese on top of each piece, cover with a lid and cook for one minute, until cheese has melted.
  6. – Turn the heat off and immediately transfer daikon to a plate. Top with chopped scallions and serve hot.
