One of my favorite Japanese comfort food is ginger pork. It's very easy to prepare and takes less than 30 min. The perfect blend of ginger and soy sauce on a tender piece of thinly sliced pork is super yummy with rice. Enjoy!
I know I probably say "this recipe is my husband and my favorite recipe" quite a bit, but this spring roll is really one of our favorites. It very quick to prepare since only pork belly has to be cooked. The soft rice paper wrapped around fresh veggie and crunchy pork belly dipped in a citrus soy sauce... it's just perfect.
We love Latino food in our household. Whenever we go to our neighborhood Mexican restaurant, our kids go through the tortilla just like paper shredders. Zoom and it's all gone. This pork carnitas is super yummy and great as party food. All you need to do is prepare the ingredients and have everyone make their own tortilla wrap. Salud!
Here's another meal in bowl recipe I want to share with you. As you might notice by now with my recipes, Japanese has many many kinds of donburi. We think of something tasty by putting it over rice we create a meal in a bowl. It's great for those night when you do not want prepare 2-3 different dish. Enjoy.
I always love to challenge myself to make better Gyoza by experimenting with different ingredients and seasonings. What's fun about Gyoza is that you can be creative with its filling. You can wrap any ingredients you like in the Gyoza skin and create your own invention. For the Gyoza recipe today, I added napa cabbage which is not a typical Gyoza ingredient. For this particular recipe you don't need to dip gyoza in any sauce because it has enough seasonings and taste.
Tonjiru is the perfect miso soup to enjoy on a cold and rainy day. The thick broth with pork belly and vegetable warms you up right away at that first sip. Try the Tonjiru recipe and show your friends a new kind of miso soup.
Japanese cuisines are usually pretty healthy, however we do have quite a bit of deep fried food. There are restaurants that specialize in tempura, kushiage (deep fried skewers), and tonkatsu (deep fried pork cutlets). Today I'll share my version of tonkatsu.
Japanese loves Italian food and you can find Italian restaurants everywhere all over Japan. Besides following the traditional recipes, sometimes Japanese add their own ingredients into traditional recipes to give the dish a Japanese twist. Try the creamy spaghetti recipe with soy sauce as the secret ingredient. Let me know what you think, to soy sauce or not to soy sauce.
Kakuni is braised pork cooked in sake and soy sauce. There are dishes similar to it in Chinese food as well. After making Kakuni, you can enjoy it many ways. It's great with white rice or can be served as an appetizer as well. You can also put it in ramen and if there are any leftovers, chop it up and cook it in fried rice.
