    Beef Short Rib -------1 pound

    In a medium sized pot combine mirepoix (chopped carrot, onion, celery and garlic), water and short rib. Cook over medium heat for 2 hours. In the mean time combine sake, mirin, soy sauce, onion, dry seaweed and dry chili in a saucepan and heat for 1 hour on low or until sauce is reduced by one quarter. Pull off heat and strain, resulting liquid is your sauce.
