  • Beef Donburi (Rice Bowl) Sukiyaki

    Sukiyaki Don

So, place it on top of the rice and make it a yummy ‘Donburi’ dish! Makes 4 Servings Ingredients 500g Beef Mince1 Onion1 Carrot1/4 (about 300g) Wombok (Chinese Cabbage)2 …

    Asa’s ‘Golubtsi’

    When I shared my recipe for ‘Super Easy Sausage Cabbage Rolls’ on my website, I received a message from a person, whose name was Asa. She wrote, ‘There’s a “lazy” form of this dish, known around all Eastern Europe. It’s a little bit different in ingredients, but almost the same in taste. If you’re interested, …

  • Beans & Peas Beef Curry

    Curry Chilli Con Carne

    When I am too tired to think about dinner menu, I tend to cook some same easy dishes that I have been repeatedly cooking. ‘Chilli Con Carne’ is one of them. And Curry is another. This time, I combined those two dishes. I simply replaced the spices for Chilli Con Carne with Curry powder. It …

    Roast Beef & Watercress Rolls

    This is a good appetiser for parties or when entertaining friends. ‘Beef & Watercress’ is one of my favourite food combinations and I like to serve them with Wasabi & Ponzu sauce. But naturally you can serve with a dipping sauce of your choice. Roast Beef needs to be sliced very thinly. I recommend to …

    My Family’s ‘Cottage Pie’

    I haven’t learned this dish from my mother. My own family in Japan never knows this dish, I guess. I learned ‘Cottage Pie’ by seeing my husband’s mother cooking it and I altered it to my way. Now I am writing down this recipe for my children so that they can cook their mother’s Cottage …

    Pressure Cooked Beef Brisket

    This dish should be slow cooked for several hours, but I want to save the power expense. The quickest cooking method is the pressure cooker method. The cooking takes 1 hour including 30 minutes of pressure-cooking time. If you don’t haver a pressure cooker, just simmer gently for several hours until brisket is tender. Makes …

    IKEA-inspired Meatballs

    I like visiting IKEA stores. And I like IKEA’s meatballs. They taste different from the meatballs I make. One day I wondered how they make the meatballs. I looked at the IKEA website, and found that the ingredients are Meat (Beef & Pork), Onion, Breadcrumbs, Egg, Water, Salt and Pepper. They are very basic ingredients …

  • Beef Egg Mushrooms

    Beef Mince Omelette

    This is what my mother used to cook for my sisters and me. She often used thinly sliced off-cut beef or pork, but minced meat is easier for me. Today I cooked Onion and Shiitake with mince, but you can cook whatever you have. When I was a little girl, it was such a fun …

    Super Easy ‘Beef Stroganoff’

    I have already shared my ‘Beef Stroganoff’ recipe on this website, but this recipe is better! You don’t need to add stock because the yummy juices come out from Beef and Mushrooms are just enough. For seasoning, you only need Salt & Pepper, and the sourness from the Pickled Cucumber is essential. Ahhh… this recipe …

  • Beef Chicken Hot Pot & Hot Plate Lamb Pork

    ‘Yakiniku’

    ‘Yakiniku’ means “grilled meat” in Japanese. The term can refer to grilled meat dishes, but most commonly it refers to the Japanese style BBQ. Bite-size meat and vegetables are cooked on the iron grid or plate over a flame of wood charcoals, or if indoor, gas or electric tabletop grill or hotplate. It’s a great …

    Beef Stew – Pressure Cooker Method

    If you have time, just slow cook for a few hours. If you have a pressure cooker, this dish can be cooked in half an hour. Saving time and energy is the ideal way of cooking for me. This time, I served it with mashed potatoes, but boiled potatoes, couscous, polenta or nice crusty bread …

    Beef Meatballs With Mushroom Gravy

    I am writing this recipe for my son and other novice cooks like him. Beef mince is not expensive and meatballs are easy to cook. If you make the mixture into large rounds, you can make hamburgers. If you don’t have Panko Breadcrumbs, just toast 1 to 2 slices of bread, break them and you …

    Beef & Watercress Salad

    Peppery Watercress, which has slightly Wasabi-like flavour, goes so well with Beef. I recommend to cook Beef medium rare or rare just like Beef Tataki. Enjoy this dish with nice wine or chilled beer!!! Cold Sake or Shōchū are also great. (Needless to say, you can enjoy this dish without alcoholic drinks.) Makes 4 Servings …

    Chilli Con Carne

    I used to buy Maggi’s Chilli Con Carne spice mix to make this dish. But once I have learned what spices I need to make it, I don’t need pre-made spice mix. This dish is very simple to make. Sometimes I add extra Chilli or less Chilli, other spices like Oregano, more Tomatoes, a little …

    Beef ‘Rouladen’

    Many many years ago, I visited Alabama in US on an educational program. I stayed with some host families and one of them was Mr. and Mrs. Page. Mrs. Page was a migrant from Germany and she cooked some German dishes for me. This ‘Beef Rouladen’ is one of those dishes and I am still …

    Pressure Cooked Beef Ribs

    ‘Slow Cooking’ has been a culinary trend for years. In Australian supermarket stores, a variety of ready-made slow-cooked meat are available. But, you know, I don’t like ready-made food because of their flavours and ingredients used. Do you think I do slow cook meat myself? The answer is ‘NO’. Gas & electricity prices are sky-rocketing …
