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!
It's very likely you've seen Saba being offered at your local Japanese restaurant as Saba Shioyaki. Besides lightly salted and broiled, here's another popular Japanese home recipe for preparing Saba. The miso flavor penetrates Saba really well and eliminates the strong fish flavor that's typical with mackerel.
I am definitely addicted to good bread and whenever I have great soup or broth, I love dipping pieces of bread and savoring every last drop of the soup. It's still cold in San Francisco in June this year so I want to share a warm comfort recipe before summer comes along. This bouillabaisse is not difficult to prepare but absolutely delish!
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.
Japanese call Chicken Cacciatore "Chicken Tomato Ni (チキンのトマト煮)" and it is actually a pretty common home cooked meal in Japan. My kids love this dish and it's one of our favorite comfort food. I am sure if my recipe follows the authentic Italian method but I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does!
Most of the meat in Japanese markets are pre-sliced, and with the pre-sliced meats Japanese housewives become very creative with "meat rolls". By substituting various ingredients, it's easy to develop different varieties of textures and taste. Other popular rolls include bacon and enoki mushroom. Let me know what's your creation!
As you probably figured out already, Japanese loves deep fried food. The fried food I want to introduce is creamy crab croquette. It's probably the most tedious recipe I've introduced so far but the results are definitely worth it. Once you bite into the crunchy exterior and taste the soft warm cream filling, it's simply delicious.
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.
In Japan, when the weather is warm we feel like we want to eat a spicy dish like curry. The weather has been warm in the San Francisco area and my Japanese friend had requested that I post a curry recipe. This chicken curry recipe received the stamp of approval from my family and it is super yummy!
