I don’t know anymore where this is from. I Did it once and it worked absolutely well. Nonetheless, I have a rice cooker now 😀
Crappy image of dipping/glazing sauce for some Yakitori we made last night. It’s very delicious and fairly easy to make dish and the sauce is most flavourful and yummy.
1/2 cup mirin
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup sake
2 cloves garlic, smashed
4 thin slices of ginger
2 tbsp dark brown sugar
1 tsp black pepper
Bring everything to a boil and, once it boils, reduce the heat to medium low. Let simmer until reduced to half. Strain and use as skewer glaze or (very savoury) dipping sauce.
This is Moo Shoo Chicken (although the chicken is still missing in the picture above), something that I didn’t make for quite a time. Originally the recipe is with pork, but I only had some chicken breast left so I didn’t care. Generally, since it’s not so easy to get hands on all the original japanese ingredients often called for in those recipes, you’ll have to substitute the one or the other item with what’s closest to the original anyway.
Holy Crap! These are so yummy – and easily made when you don’t have time and nerves to start a cookout after work. Try them, you won’t be disappointed, I promise:
For when you get home from work and can’t really be arsed into much cooking 🙂 This is ultra fast, extra simple and nonetheless filling.
I had an open package of Somen Noodles in the kitchen, that I wanted to use up, so I made cold Somen noodles for Lunch. Since Somen are very low in calories but also relatively filling, I like this from time to time. They’re fool proof, tasty and, while my version was – as usual – not too optically appealing, they are pretty original.
Now these are a little more complicated… I had stuff like them in a vietnamese restaurant and I was now googling around for some time to find something similar that I’d dare myself. So finally, since I’m neither asian nor a professional, I’ve thrown this together from here, here and here. What can I say? They turned out a bit ugly but indeed really delicious 🙂
Super-easy and fast. Oh, I forgot: also yummy!
