All very nice, except it's next to impossible buy the key ingredient in Japan. Tell us which supermarket sells that kind of beef?

Brisket or other of the cheap tougher cuts are fine for this kind of dish. Why oh why do they insist on chucking sugar in to everything, this does not need or benefit from it, it just adds empty calories, infantalised food.

Better to put some of the veg in the bottom to act as a trivet and add depth to the flavour, cook the veg in the liquid while the meat is resting. Chicken stock adds nothing, just use a good home made beef stock and wine.

You can also cook this in a slow cooker (I think some countries call it a crockpot).

Actually, that is not really true, you can for the most part get all the listed ingredients, brisket it would depend, but if you go to your local butcher, you can probably order it. I make pot roast and stews all the time. If you look deeper, I’m sure you can them.

I don't need to read some random blog to know that the main cause of increased Alzheimer's in Japan is increased longevity. Like cancer, the longer you live the more likely you are to succumb.

The two biggest contributory factors are obesity and lack of exercise.

Looks delicious - great winter food.

Does anyone know where to get parsnips from in Japan? I guess there are plenty of alternative root vegetables to substitute if you can't get them.

Looks like a good recipe but when I put something in a slow cooker I normally don't brown it first. I've found that the meat is just as tasty and tender by adding all ingredients at the start and putting it on low for 4 to 5 hours.  But to each their own.

It's an over complicated casserole. And use beer (the real stuff, not fizzy lager) and/or beef stock NEVER chicken stock, no sugar and add a some turnip or swede. Not that you can get most of the stuff listed in the recipe in Japan.
