  • Curry Donburi (Rice Bowl) Pork

    Curry Flavoured Pork & Eggplant Rice Bowl

    When you stir-fry Eggplant with other ingredients, cooking time can be an issue. Today I cooked Eggplant with thinly sliced Pork. How would you cook these two ingredients together? My method is pre-cook Eggplant in the microwave. Once you have done it, this dish can be cooked very quickly. Makes 2 Servings Ingredients 1 Eggplant …

  • Pork Ramen

    Crispy Instant Ramen with Stir-fry

    I want to share another way you can cook an Instant ‘Soy Sauce’ Ramen. An extra effort is required, but it is worth it. Crispy Noodles with Stir-fry is my favourite dish and this is an attempt to create it using an Instant Ramen. If you are served this dish at a casual eatery, you …

  • Beef Curry Pork Ramen

    Instant Curry Ramen

    This is another super easy recipe that transforms the Instant Ramen into a delicious and nutritious meal.

  • Pork Potato

    Mabo Potatoes

    ‘Mabo Dōfu’ (Mapo Tofu) is one of the foods that I sometimes crave for. The other day, when I wanted to cook it, I didn’t have Tofu. I sometimes cook the same dish using Eggplant OR Harusame Noodles, but I didn’t have them either. Then an idea came to me. How about Potato? Makes 4 …

  • Chicken Donburi (Rice Bowl) Fish Pork

    Katsu Don with Tonkatsu Sauce

    This rice bowl dish is called ‘Sauce Katsu Don’ in Japan, and the ‘Sauce’ means ‘Tonkatsu’ Sauce in this case. ‘Katsu’ is crumbed and fried meat, and ‘Tonkatsu’ (Pork Cutlets) is popularly used. Today I used Crumbed Fried Fish. This dish was my youngest sister’s favourite when she was a young girl. To encourage her …

    Hoisin Pork Sauce

    To make my ‘Spicy Meat Sauce’, I use Red Miso (dark coloured Japanese Miso) and Soy Sauce. The other day I added Hoisin Sauce as well, just because I needed to use it up. The sauce was so good and inspired me to make this Pork Sauce. This meat sauce can be enjoyed with freshly …

    Daikon & Pork Japanese Curry

    Daikon (White Radish) is a major vegetable to me. I cook it often, I use it for salad often, and I pickle it often. But, in the green grocery store where I shop, I have never seen anyone purchasing Daikon. Do you cook it? Here is a suggestion for you to try. As Japanese Curry …

  • Beans & Peas Pork

    Pork, Chorizo & Black Bean Stew

    The other day I cooked my ‘Pork & Beans’ with just canned Tomatoes and Salt & Pepper for seasoning. The flavour was too bland and I decided to add Chorizo Sausage, and it instantly improved the flavour. Then I saw a picture of a Brazilian dish called ‘Feijoada’, that was almost identical to what I …

  • Pork Udon

    Stir-fried Pork & Kimchi Udon

    This is one of the dishes that I repeatedly cook for my lunch. Frozen Udon Noodles have the best texture and I recommend to stock some in your freezer. As they are already cooked, you only need to warm them. The rubbery texture of Udon and Pork & Kimchi are a really good match. Makes …

    When I have leftover Tonkatsu (Pork Cutlet), I usually make ‘Katsu Sando’ (Tonkatsu Sandwich) for lunch next day. Today I made this Rice Sandwich ‘Onigirazu’.

    Tonkatsu Sandwich

    Tonkatsu, the deep-fried Pork Cutlet coated with Panko Breadcrumbs, is not particularly difficult to cook, but it’s time consuming. Thats’ why, when I cook it, I always cook extra. And the leftover Tonkatsu can be used for many ways. This sandwich is called ‘Katsu Sando’ in Japan and it’s very popular. This is something I …

  • Miso Soup Pork

    Leek & Pork Miso Soup

    Leek is a European vegetable, but I have found its mild flavour is suitable for Japanese dishes. Miso Soup is an example. Today I used Leek for ‘Butajiru’, that is a type of Miso Soup with Pork. It’s so comforting and also filling. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients 4 cups Soup Stock of your choice *Today …

    Red Cabbage & Bacon Salad

    I love the crunchy texture of Red Cabbage. It is an antioxidant-rich vegetable that has a great mix of vitamins and minerals. Here is another way to enjoy it. This is a salad and you don’t cook Red Cabbage, but texture is as if stir-fried. Bacon adds umami and saltiness. It’s delicious and very CRUNCHY! …

    Skinless Pork Sausages

    We really don’t know what is in the store-bought sausages, do we? It would be good if I could make sausages at home knowing exactly what is in them. However, sausage making is not an easy task. I don’t have tools and the casings are not widely available. The solutions is making them skinless. Makes …
