I made Takikomi Gohan, a yummy japanese rice dish. I found the recipe here (I like these two girls, here’s their YouTube Channel) and followed it except the konnyaku, that I wasn’t able to find here. It’s tasty and filling and almost no work since the rice cooker does everything for you.
I had a full pund of ground meat left over yesterday, so in order to not let it spoil I made an Oven Fattie from it. Man, this is Heart Attack Food… Extra juicy, cheesy and frickin’ delicious. Here’s how to do it:
I made homemade veggie stock these days for my SO. I’m not so much into veggies personally but she likes it and I made a batch. It’s really easy and it only takes some time to dry (where you don’t have to give it too much attention). This is not so much intended for making soup (although it will somehow work too), but merely for seasoning, for example for sauces and stews.
You can use leftover uncooked veggies and also kitchen scraps for this, as long as you make sure they’re clean and reasonably free of roots or hard skins. This is what I did:
Teriyaki Sauce is one of the staple ingredients in japanese cooking. It means “shiny grilled” literally (Wikipedia) and while it’s normally just prepared on the fly while cooking, I find it nice to have a small stock of it in the fridge to use.
I tried to find a recipe that is as original as possible because there are so many “western” variations of it to be found on the internet and I wanted the real thing. Eventually, I found a simple and easy instruction in this video (at 4:20 – I generally like that guy and I have already cooked a lot of his dishes) and will follow this, because most “japanese” or at least “original asian” looking sites say mostly the same.
I like these and always make them in advance for a few days. It’s not too much work (let it be 10 minutes) and they reheat in the microwave in 2 minutes in the morning, so they’re easy and convenient. They keep in the fridge for about two days, otherwise I think you could also freeze them. But usually they don’t last very long…
Latest cooking Experiment, yesterday evening for dinner: “Elsässer Flammkuchen” (some kind of french pizza, with a very thin bottom topped with sour cream, onions and bacon). Very yummy, luckily everybody liked it.
Ugly Fotos this time but a great meal! This is the Seafood Chowder we had for Dinner yesterday. 3 hours in the slow cooker made hearty, aromatic, fragrant and filling meal. Almost no work at all, easily available ingredients and a simple recipe. We’ll definitely do that again! Trust me: Do try this at home!
This chinese noodle dish with the exceptional name (basic recipe and explanation here) is fast and easy to cook and yummy as hell. Man, I love that shit!
(BTW: Sake is required, not Oyster Sauce as on the picture). As usual I adapted it a little, aka mixed several recipes that I found on the internet until I liked it best.
Since the last batch worked out so beautiful, I have started another one but this time three times as much. The procedure is always the same:
