    ‘Gyoza-burgs’

    Many years ago, when my children were young, we tried to make Gyoza for dinner one day and ended up having a large amount of filling leftover. My children should have wrapped more filling but they were not yet very skilled with Gyoza wrapping. Anyway, I made the filling leftover into small patties and cooked …

  • Donburi (Rice Bowl) Pork

    Pork Shogayaki (Ginger Pork) Don

    A ‘Donburi (Rice Bowl)’ dish is perfect for my lunch. There was a small block of pork belly in the fridge. Left over rice would be hot and fluffy again when microwaved. So I made this ‘Pork Shogayaki Don’ today. The cooked pork mixture would cover the rice, so the pork needs to be sliced …

    Curry Flavoured Smoked Sausage & Potato Salad

    The sausages in Japan are mainly European style smoked sausages. I came across uncooked raw English style sausages in Australia for the first time. I recommend to use smoked sausages for this dish. I use Kransky sausages that are commonly available in Melbourne where I live. This curry flavoured potato salad is one of my …

    Simmered Daikon & Pork Belly

    This dish used to look like this dish. I used to always cut Daikon and Pork Belly into large chunky pieces. It takes quite long time to cook until those chunky pieces get tender. Pressure cooker method is good, but I really didn’t want to bother on the other day. What I did was slicing …

  • Okonomiyaki Pork Vegetables

    Okonomiyaki with Garlic Chives

    When I found a bunch of Garlic Chives getting wilted in the fridge, I decided to add them to Okonomiyaki. To make Okonomiyaki more colourful and nutritious, I also added Carrot. And the result was unsatisfying. It didn’t taste good with ‘Okonomiyaki Sauce’ and Japanese mayonnaise. Why? I tried the ‘Okonomiyaki with Garlic Chives’ with …

    ‘Nibuta’ Boiled Pork

    At many Ramen Shops in Japan, you would find the Pork Slices placed on top of Ramen noodles. They are actually not roasted but boiled. I first created this recipe for my son to be able to cook Pork by himself using only limited tools and ingredients. You only need a pot or a large …

    Sweet & Sour Pork (or Chicken)

    ‘Sweet & Sour Pork’ is such a popular Chinese dish and there are loads of different recipes. I often come across the dish cooked with pineapple, which I do not like. I never cook meat with fruit. This recipe is based on a recipe I learned in Japan when I was at high school. Pork …

    Sweet Miso Eggplant Don

    ‘Sweet Miso Sauce’ is so versatile and can be used for many dishes. I simply stir-fry Eggplant and Green Capsicum, then add Pork Mince, and seasoned with the ‘Sweet Miso Sauce’ with Toban Djan (Chili Bean Sauce) for spiciness. So easy to cook and so yummy. We always eat this dish with rice, so I …
