Here’s wild broccoli or “broccoli rabe”, also known as “italian broccoli” or “Spargelkohl” in germany. This long-stemmed cousin of the well-known normal broccoli is more aromatic and has a more distinct flavor. I cooked it asian-style these days and it was a very delicious yet easy to make dish.
Now, lots of people have smiled over Uncle Roger’s hilarious YouTube reaction on somebody’s rice cooking, so, of course I tried his “finger method”, just for the test. No measuring of rice and water, just use your index finger’s knuckles and somewhat “eyeball” everything. There’s a nice and comprehensible explanation here that I shamelessly copied – see below.
And it works! I got fluffy, perfectly cooked and delicious rice. So easy, so convenient, so idiot proof. I’m even thinking about NOT buying a new rice cooker now 🙂
I did a sweeping blow in the kitchen today. Inspired by one of those nasty food videos on YT with appetizing and mouthwatering pictures of delicious ramen bowls, I made a whole series of japanese soup ingredients that I have almost all made before in the past – but never all of them together.
Now I’ve got a nice collection of asian ingredients to use in the near future – besides, it was an enjoyable way to tackle my downright miserable mood this morning.
Anything “Teriyaki” apparently means nothing more than “glossily fried”. Thus: You don’t need any expensive store-bought sauces, special ingredients or anything! The recipe (which seems to be original, since I even asked a born and raised asian person – just to make sure), is really easy, very delicious and done in almost no-time. Try it! As far as i know it’s the original.
For me, one of the tastiest ways to use up leftovers. In this case rice, homemade chinese bacon, spring onion and lots of garlic. BTW: I stole this recipe from a chinese cooking show with no subtitles on YT, so I hope it’s half-way original 🙂
Anyway, this is tasty stuff, filling enough, and here’s how:
I don’t know if this is a real asian dish or if it’s just some thrown together delicacy. I read this somewhere some time ago and finally gave it a try – and for real: This is simple, easy-to-make dinner, very yummy and perfect for evenings when you can barely be arsed to cook. 🙂
I watched this YouTube video and just had to recreate that recipe. I omitted the hot sauce and used what I had in the fridge. I can absolute recommend this!
This seems to be a very popular dish in Japan and – in my opinion – for a good reason. It’s named after the chinese city of Tianjin where it seems to originate from. It’s fried egg with seafood over rice, literally drowned in a savoury gravy.
Give it a try, it’s easy, satisfying and delicious! Here’s how to cook it:
So todays grass widower’s dinner was thin “soy sauce wine and butter beef slices” with a side of “miso XO noodles”. Yeah! And you know what? It was really good!
Raiding the fridge and kitchen cabinet yielded this: Beef slices, a pack of plain asian noodles, some spring onions and a remnant of miso. The rest were staple ingredients that I always have ready at hand. This was the real “Alex-being-at-a-loss Fusion Cuisine” 🙂
