I would like to share my very own recipes of Japanese Dishes. These are very easy to cook. Maybe you can cook them too in your homes.

Chinese Cabbage Clam Hotpot

Ingredients Makes 4 servings

1/2 Chinese cabbage
4 medium size mushrooms
300g clams (soak in lightly salted water for at least 4 hours)
fish balls
tofu
2 tablespoons Japanese rice wine
Water 500ml
1 teaspoon light colored soy sauce

You can add shrimps and oysters too

Direction

1.Cut the cabbage coarsely. Cut the root of the mushroom.

2. Put the clams, rice wine and water in the pot. Cover the pot with the lid and braise over low heat.

3. When the clams open, take them out and leave the clam broth in the pot.

4. Add the Chinese cabbage, tofu, mushrooms and fish balls. Cover the pot and boil over medium heat and season it with soy sauce.

5. When the Chinese cabbage is tender, add the clams and boil lightly.
Serve hot.

Stewed Meat and Potatoes

Ingredients Makes 4 servings

1/2 lb. thin sliced fatty beef or pork
1 lb. starchy potatoes, cleaned and cut
1 medium onion, sliced
1/2 Tbsp oil
2 cups dashi stock or water
3 Tbsp rice wine
1 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp mirin
3 Tbsp soy sauce

Direction

1. Heat the oil in a pan until hot, then remove from the heat to a wet dishtowel. Add the meat and stir to coat with oil. Return to moderate heat and stir beef to brown. This prevents the meat from getting stuck to the pan.

2. Add onions and potatoes when the meat browns. Stir it all with a wooden spatula to mix thoroughly.

3. Add dashi stock (or water) and seasonings in the following order: rice wine, sugar, mirin, soy sauce. Always add sweet before salty. If you add soy sauce first, the salt will repel the sugar and the flavors won’t meld as well. Wait about a minute between each addition and stir well. Skim the scum that foams up.

4. Lower the heat a bit more and place a drop lid (or small plate, or circle of aluminium foil) on top to ensure even immersion. Let the stewed meat and potatoes simmer until liquid is reduced to 1/3.

5. Remove the drop lid and turn the ingredients by flipping them in the pan to coat with the juices. Boil the rest of the way over high heat, slanting pan if necessary, until nearly all the liquid is absorbed. Transfer stewed meat and potatoes to a flat container and spread out to cool. Serve when it reaches room temperature.

Stir Fry Noodle

Ingredients

2 tablespoons oil
¼ onion, sliced
50g cabbage, sliced
½ small carrot, cut into matchstick strips
50g meat of your choice (chicken, pork, or beef)
350g yakisoba noodles (Chinese noodles)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon Worcheshire sauce
1 tablespoon sake
1 teaspoon sugar
Salt to taste
bonito flakes

Direction

1. Lightly loosen the pre-steamed Chinese noodles.

2. Heat vegetable oil in medium skillet on medium heat. Add the onion and stir fry for 30 seconds, then add the meat and do a few quick stirs before adding the cabbage and carrot.

3. Stir and cook until the meat is half cooked, then add the noodles and all the seasonings.

4. Continue to stir-fry until the vegetables and noodles are cooked, for about 2 minutes.

5. Dish out and serve immediately with some benishoga (Japanese pink pickled ginger)
and sprinkle bonito flakes.

Miso Soup

Ingredients

2 teaspoons dashi granules
4 cups water
3 tablespoons miso paste
1 (8 ounce) package silken tofu, diced
2 green onions, chopped

Direction

1. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine dashi granules and water.

2. Bring to a boil.

3. Reduce heat to medium, and whisk in the miso paste.

4. Stir in tofu.

5. Add the chopped green onion.

5. Simmer gently for 2 to 3 minutes before serving.

Cooking is one of my hobbies. I like experimenting on how a dish would taste. As we get older, we crave for simple dishes. Thank you for you comment, Siva.
