    Beef Mince Gyū Don

    ‘Gyū Don’ is a rice bowl dish. Thinly sliced Beef and Onion simmered in a sweet soy sauce flavoured dashi stock is placed on rice. It is one of the most popular dishes in Japan.

    Lazy ‘Korokke’

    ‘Korokke’ is the Japanese name for a deep-fried Potato Cake coated with ‘Panko’ Breadcrumbs, originally related to a French dish ‘Croquette’. A wide variety of ‘Korokke’ are available from stores in Japan. But, in Melbourne where I live, I have to make them when I want to eat them. It’s not hard to make, but …

    Lamb Kofta Kebabs

    I often use Dry Mixed Herbs and Black Pepper to season ‘My Family’s Lamb Koftas’, but, of course, other Spices and Herbs can be used. Today I seasoned it in the middle eastern flavour (I believe it is) and tried to make it into Kebabs. I even purchased long and thick bamboo BBQ skewers for …

    ‘Golubtsi’ Stuffed Capsicums

    Several years ago, I received a message form a person, whose name was Asa, about Cabbage Rolls. She wrote that Cabbage Rolls are known as ‘Golubtsi’ in Eastern European region where her family is from, and she introduced me a ‘lazy’ form of ‘Golubtsi’. She kindly gave me her recipe and I have shared it …

    Scrumptious Pork Mince & Potato

    The other day, my son cooked ‘Mabo Dofu Japanese Style’. Next day I found a small amount of leftover Pork Mince. I wondered what I could cook with it. I happened to have a Potato, that was already peeled. I instantly thought about ‘Mabo Potatoes’, but I wanted to cook something simple and easy. Then …

    Chilli Con Carne Cottage Pie

    I usually serve Chilli Con Carne with Rice. But today I tried to make it into Cottage Pie. Mashed Potato could go well with any flavour and I though this would be delicious, and I was right. I usually don’t add Cheese to my Cottage Pie, but today I added some shredded Tasty Cheese and …

    Just like Bread Loaf can be baked in a tin or on a tray, Meatloaf can be baked in a tin or on a tray. Free-form Meatloaf is quick and easy to bake. Place some Potatoes around it and bake all together. You may wish to add other Vegetables such as Carrot. While they are …

    Oven-baked ‘Golubtsi’ Burgers

    These oven-baked patties are almost identical to the patties of Asa’s ‘Golubtsi’, which is described by Asa, a person who gave me the recipe, as a ‘lazy’ form of Cabbage Rolls. I named these patties ‘Golubtsi’ Burgers and I added Instant Oats instead of Cooked Rice and Breadcrumbs because my husband is currently trying not …

    Healthy Tofu & Chicken Balls

    You can make healthy Chicken Balls even healthier by mixing Tofu with Chicken Mince. ‘Chicken & Tofu Burgers’ is an example and it is very popular in Japan. These ‘Tofu & Chicken Balls’ are best cooked in the boiling Stock, so that you would need no Oil at all. I often cook them in a …

    Cabbage Rolls

    Cabbage Rolls are much easier to prepare than you think, though you need large Cabbage leaves. I often use uncooked Sausages for the stuffing, but today I made the stuffing using Pork Mince. I heard that Ukrainian people often add Cooked Rice to the mixture, so I added 1 cupful of Cooked Rice. I think …
