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.
Yesterday I made the biggest batch of “Bratwurscht” ever since I’m doing this. It took me a whole afternoon, to grind meat, season, knead and fill into casings. Now I’ve got 2 types of sausages, ending up with 4,5 kg in total:
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:

I read an article on home made fermented hot BBQ sauce and I wanted to try it myself. Here are the first results, I promise to post on the progress.
To every asian chef or hobby cook that may ever visit my little site here (if so at all…), you’ll have to be very strong now. This is actual footage of a european (german) amateur cook (aka me) wrapping gyoza (japanese dumplings) at home. This is my way of wrapping them and you surely can make them more pretty, but I swear to god they were extra delicious.
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.
We had a really plentiful harvest of pears this year, so I took some of them to make my own liqueur. Here’s how:
