    Garlic Chilli Pork & Broccoli Spaghetti

    When I need to cook Broccoli for a Spaghetti dish, I usually cook Broccoli in the same salty water that is cooking Spaghetti. When Spaghetti are half-cooked, I add Broccoli to the water, and it works fine. However, for this dish, there is an alternative way and Broccoli tastes much better. It’s my favourite steam-frying …

    Tomato, Pork & Egg Rice Bowl

    Stir-fried Tomato, Pork & Egg is a dish I repeatedly cook. We always eat it with freshly cooked Rice, so I made it into a rice bowl. Sweet ripe Tomatoes in season are the best, but I often use not-so-great Tomatoes for stir-fries. When Tomatoes are sour, a little bit of Sugar improves the flavour. …

    Golden Crispy Oven Baked ‘Tonkatsu’ (Pork Cutlets)

    The deep-fried crumbed Pork Cutlets are called ‘Tonkatsu’ in Japanese. It is hugely popular internationally, but many people avoid cooking them at home, because they don’t want to deep-fry. ‘Tonkatsu’ can be baked in the oven and I like oven-baking method, but they never turn out golden and crispy like deep-fried ones. The other day, …

    Stir-fried Coriander

    If you think Coriander tastes like soap, you would never enjoy Coriander because your taste perception is different. You have particular receptors that find Coriander tastes yucky. If you find Coriander’s smell is just overwhelming, it might be a good idea to stir-fry it, as the smell is significantly reduced when cooked. Today I added …

    Gochujang Pork Rice Bowl

    The delicious ‘Buta Don’ (Pork Rice Bowl) is very popular. Today I added Gochujang (Korean Spicy Miso) to its sauce for extra ‘umami’ and spiciness. If you love spicy food, you may wish to add more Gochujang, but 2 teaspoons was a right amount for me. Add some vegetables of your choice as well. Today …

    Simmered Pork Belly & Kombu (Kelp)

    This is a typical Japanese home-cooked dish. It is quite popular, I often cook it, but probably you have never seen it as you won’t come across a dish like this at Japanese restaurants. Use Pork Belly for this dish, so that Kombu absorbs its fat and ‘umami’. You need to simmer until Kombu is …
