  • Pork Somen & Hiyamugi

    Stir-fried Pork & Somen (OR Capellini)

    ‘Somen’, Japanese Thin Noodles, can be substituted with Capellini (Angel Hair Pasta), and I often use Capellini. This is a very simple stir-fry dish, and naturally you can add any vegetables that you have in hand. A quick & easy lunch menu for me. Makes 1 Serving Ingredients 100g Thinly Sliced Pork *cut into small …

    Oyster Sauce Omu-rice (Omelette Rice)

    Japan’s famous Omu-rice (Omelette Rice), fried rice wrapped with thin omelette, is seasoned with Ketchup. For those who don’t enjoy Ketchup, and also who want to try different flavour, I suggest this Oyster Sauce seasoned Omu-rice. Chicken is usually used for Omu-rice, but I use Pork for this one. Makes 1 Serving Ingredients 2 Eggs1/2 …

    Roasted Pork Belly Marinated in Spare Rib Marinade

    I don’t cook Pork Spare Ribs very often because I don’t like the way we eat them, but I like the flavour of grilled Spare Ribs. I often cook Boneless Lean Pork Belly. Today I marinated it in Spare Rib Marinade. I recommend to cut the Pork Block in half so that Pork gets seasoned …

    Pork Ramen Soup

    To cook ‘Nibuta’ Boiled Pork, you boil the Pork Block in water with Ginger, Garlic and Spring Onion. The water turns into flavourful stock and it must not be wasted. I make this milky Ramen Soup using the stock. This soup tastes like ‘Tonkotsu’ Ramen Soup that is made by boiling Pork Bones for many …

    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 …

  • Beef Lamb Pork

    ‘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 …

    Steam-Fried Pork Belly & Cabbage

    This is a dish I repeatedly cook especially when the weather is cold. As you can read in the method, it is super easy to cook. And the dish is comfortingly delicious. I always season it very simply as I believe that’s the best way to season this dish. You may wish to add other …

  • Sushi

    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

    Curry Pork Don

    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. This dish is based on my ‘Pork Shogayaki (Ginger Pork)’ recipe. Tomato adds extra sweetness and fruitiness to the flavour. Makes 2 Servings Ingredients 200g thinly …

  • Pork Tofu

    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 …

  • Beans & Peas Beef Chicken Other Soup Pork

    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 …
