This dish gets some lovely but subtle flavor from mirin – a slightly sweet Japanese rice wine. When paired with demi-glace and Japanese tonkatsu sauce, the result is a sweet and salty condiment that provides a huge flavor power-up. Fragrant white rice and glazed carrots are perfect foils for sirloin and umami-rich sauce. Tip: To peel the carrot with less effort, lay it down on your cutting board peel one half, rolling it as you peel. (Be sure to peel in a motion away from you!)
