  • Summary

    Though this rich, intense, homey stew has the depth of a recipe handed down through generations, it's actually a modern interpretation, by Momofuku partner Joaquin Baca, of a Mexican stew he grew up eating, made with Japanese ingredients. And it's the best kind of comfort food: The dark greens, mushrooms, and burdock, braised with silky chicken in a savory broth, make this single dish feel like a satisfying, well-balanced meal.

    Ingredients

    • 16 chicken thighs with skin and bone (5 pounds)
    • 1/2 cup dried wood ear mushrooms
    • 10 cups water, divided
    • About 4 cups chicken stock or reduced-sodium chicken broth (32 fluid ounces)
    • 2 (c) stalks burdock root (sometimes called gobo) or salsify (optional)
    • 1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar or fresh lemon juice
    • 3 tablespoons canola oil
    • 2 large onions, coarsely chopped
    • 1 lb fresh shiitake mushrooms, stems discarded, large caps quartered
    • 3 tablespoons finely chopped peeled ginger
    • 3 tablespoons finely chopped garlic
    • 1 cup mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine)
    • 1 cup white miso (also called shiro miso)
    • 1/2 cup soy sauce
    • 1 lb mustard greens, tough stems and ribs discarded and leaves coarsely chopped (16 cups)
    • Accompaniment: steamed Asian white rice
    • Garnish: chopped scallions
