    Pork Mince Nikujaga

    ‘Nikujaga’ is the dish of ‘Niku’ (Meat) and ‘Jaga’ (Potato) cooked in sweet soy sauce flavoured broth. It is one of the most popular home cooking dishes in Japan, and I cook it very often. I use thinly sliced Beef, but ‘Niku’ can be other Meat. Thinly sliced Meat is most popular, but it can …

    Teriyaki Eggplant & Pork Mince

    This Pork Mince filling is almost same as Gyoza filling. I simply sandwiched it with Eggplant slices, then fried. My first attempt was not quite successful, because the Pork filling slipped out from Eggplant. You need to glue them so that they stay together. Flour would be a good glue. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients 250 …

    Soboro Mixed Inari-zushi

    In Japan, when we make Inari-zushi, that is Sushi Rice wrapped in seasoned Abura-age (Thin Fried Tofu), we often mix some extra ingredients with Sushi Rice. Common ingredients are hard to find where I live, so I mixed ‘Soboro’ made with Chicken Mince or Pork Mince. Makes 12 Pieces Ingredients 2 cups (180ml cup) Japanese …

    White Mabo Dofu Japanese Style

    My ‘Mabo Dofu Japanese Style’ is quite different from the authentic Chinese ‘Mapo Tofu’, but that’s what I have been eating and it is very easy to prepare. This ‘White’ version is also very easy and it is NOT spicy at all. It is absolutely suitable for very young children. If you want to make …

  • Chicken Pork Prawn & Shrimp

    Fried Stuffed Lotus Root

    I often use minced Prawns for this dish, but I used Chicken Mince today. Pork Mince is also good. Frozen Lotus Root is available from most Asian grocery store if you can’t find fresh one. Thinner slices are more suitable. It’s much easier to cook than it looks. Why don’t you try it for a …

    Chicken Mince in Abura-age (Thin Fried Tofu)

    I used to make this dish using Tofu as filling, but I like Chicken Mince version better. I wanted to add Hijiki (a sea vegetable) as well, but I haven’t found it for many years where I live. If you have it, add 1 tablespoon of it. Makes 6 pieces Ingredients 3 Abura-age (Thin Fried …

    Curry Stuffed Bread ‘Karee Pan’

    In Japan, there is a popular savoury bread called ‘Karee Pan’, that is deep-fried bread filled with Curry and coated with Bread Crumbs. Using my ‘1-Hour Focaccia’ dough and your leftover Curry, it’s not too hard to make. Deep-frying is the traditional method, but you can bake it in the oven. I include a simple …

    Meat Loaf With Loads Of Vegetables

    My son didn’t eat vegetables when he was young. I used to make Hamburger Steaks with lots and lots of vegetables finely chopped up and mixed with minced meat. That way he ate any vegetables without knowing he was eating them. This mixture can be formed into round patties and cooked in a frying pan, …

    Oven-baked Mexican Spring Rolls

    I assume that many of you love popular Chinese snack ‘Spring Rolls’ but never tried to make them yourself. I actually don’t like store-bought Spring Rolls because they are very oily. Spring Rolls are easy to make and I bake them in the oven. They are much healthier. The filling can be anything you like. …

    ‘Loco Moco’ Hamburger Rice Bowl

    I know the name of this dish ‘Loco Moco’ sounds very weird to Spanish speakers. The origin of the dish is in Hawaii. It was invented by Japanese-Hawaiians and has become quite popular in Hawaii and Japan. There are loads of different recipes for the gravy sauce. You can use your own gravy recipe. Makes …

  • Gyoza Pork Tofu

    Gluten-free ‘Abura-age’ Gyoza

    If you can’t eat wheat flour and have given up eating Gyoza because of that, you might wish to try this alternative. Instead of wrapping the filling with Gyoza wrappers, I sandwiched the filling with ‘Abura-age’, Fried Thin Tofu. This recipe includes a very basic Pork filling, but you can find more Gyoza filling recipes …

    Sweet Chilli & Shiso (Basil) Chicken Balls

    My Shiso plants did not grow well this summer in 2020, but I still can harvest lovely aromatic leaves. I know Shiso is hard to find for many of us, that’s why I am growing them in the garden. Basil can be used instead. Common Basil, Thai Basil, or similar fragrant herbs are all good. …

Try my ‘Lazy Wonton Soup’. Using the same ingredients that you need to make it properly, this soup can be ready in 5 minutes. …

    Sweet & Sour Pork Mince

    ‘Sweet & Sour Pork’ is popular and my family loves it, but I just don’t want to cook it very often because pre-cooking Pork is quite demanding. Then I tried a very easy method using Pork Mince. This is so easy and quick, and as delicious as the proper ‘Sweet & Sour Pork’. Makes 4 …
