    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 …

    ‘Kushikatsu’ Skewers

    When I cook Crumbed Cutlets, I usually coat the meat with Flour, Egg, then Breadcrumbs. This method is different. It uses a batter. Beef and Pork are popular meat for this dish, but Lamb would be good, too. I always add some vegetables, but I should select Vegetables that can be cooked very quickly or …

    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 …

  • Curry Donburi (Rice Bowl) Pork

    Your Curry Powder is not only for Indian dishes. I use it for Japanese dishes a lot. Everyone loves Curry flavour and it is really good with Soy Sauce.

    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 …

    Chilli Con Carne Soup

    I was making Tomato Soup and I wanted to add leftover cooked Barley to it. Then I decided to add some beans as well. The soup looked like ‘Chilli Con Carne’, so I added the spices that I use to make Chilli Con Carne. The result was excellent. I could have added some Jalapeño. Makes …

    Sir-fried Rice Vermicelli

    I used to cook this dish using already seasoned Dry Rice Vermicelli in Japan. A company called ‘Kenmin Foods’ produces delicious Rice Vermicelli products. I recently saw the products on the internet and I was nostalgic. I tried to cook the dish using commonly available unseasoned Dry Rice Vermicelli. I seasoned it simply and the …

  • 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 …

    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.

    Pork & Cabbage Rolled Gyoza

    Everyone loves Gyoza. It’s a great fun family activity to make them, too. My children always wanted to help me making them when they were very young, but traditional wrapping method was too difficult for young children. These Rolled Gyoza are easy to make. Instead of wrapping them, just roll them up! Today I used …

    ‘Nikomi’ Simmered Miso Ramen

    This is one of my childhood dishes. My mother used to cook this in a large pot for whole family of five. Ramen Noodles tend to get quite soft as they are cooked in the soup with other ingredients. She used particular Noodles that were made for this dish, but I use Japanese Instant Miso …
