Buta No Shogayaki

Posted in Japanese | 3 Comments »
Last weekend, we stopped by Papaya supermarket for some grocery shopping. In the meat section, I saw several packs of finely sliced pork labeled shogayaki. I remembered reading a recipe called shogayaki in my Japanese Homestyle Cooking cookbook. So I bought a pack and attempted to make Buta no Shogayaki, which is actually just a simple ginger fried pork. It’s simple and easy to make, and the result is delicious & satisfying. I didn’t follow the recipe religiously as I was not sure I should put 1 cup of sugar in the marinade sauce, so I just figured out the proportion myself.

Minced Pork Congee

Posted in Chinese, Quick and Easy, Rice | 2 Comments »
One of my favorite childhood breakfast is minced pork congee which I usually bought at a stall in front of a kopitiam near my parents house. Since I live in Jakarta, it was very hard to find the same congee whenever I craved for it. Once I’ve found it in a kopitiam at Teluk Gong, but on my next visit, they seller had moved. So this morning, I tried to make it for breakfast. I once tried to make this congee using rice cooker, which ended up a disaster :) So this time, I make it using a soup pot. It was quite easy and I didn’t follow the exact recipe, I just add water whenever I felt the congee is too thick :)

Stir Fried Pork with Basil

Posted in Quick and Easy, Thai | 1 Comment »
Whenever I go to the supermarket, I always look for basil in the vegetables section. I love to cook basil with chicken/pork and I think all dishes made with basil addition tasted delicious. This recipe of Thai pork basil (Pad gkaprow mu) originally require Thai holy basil, but since I can’t find it, I just use regular sweet basil. Recipe was modified from ‘Thai Home Cooking’ cookbook :)

Tonkatsu Don

Posted in Japanese, Quick and Easy, Rice | 8 Comments »
I’m a donburi fan and I always look for that menu first when I enter a Japanese restaurant. So far, my favorite is Oyakodon. I haven’t yet found a delicious Tonkatsudon in Jakarta, so I tried to make one for lunch today. The recipe was taken from “The Food of Japan, 96 Easy and Delicious Recipes from the Land of the Rising Sun”. The recipe was quite easy, but because I tried to make the dashi stock from scratch, it took about 1 hour to from start to finish. The result was quite good. I didn’t have any tonkatsu sauce, so I make it using 1 part worchestershire sauce and 5 parts tomato ketchup. :)

Yang Chow Fried Rice

Posted in Chinese, Quick and Easy, Rice | No Comments »
Usually, when we have leftover rice, I always used the rice to make fried rice in the morning for breakfast. There are hundreds of fried rice variations and one of them is Yang Chow fried rice that can be found easily at Chinese restaurants. I browsed the internet for the recipe and found a lot of ways to make Yang Chow fried rice. So I picked something here and there, and use whatever I got in the fridge. :)

Crispy & Cheesy Pork

Posted in Quick and Easy | 2 Comments »
I read this recipe in last year’s Essential magazine and decided to try it today for lunch. The recipe is so easy, the whole preparation and cooking time took less than half an hour. The original recipe requires feta cheese, but since I can’t get that cheese, I replaced it with cheddar instead. :)

Arroz a la Cubana (Cuban-style Rice)

Posted in Pilipino, Quick and Easy | No Comments »
I found this recipe from Periplus Mini Cookbooks “Filipino Favorites”. The recipe is interesting, Arroz a la Cubana combines the richness of meat with the sweet tastes of fried bananas and raisins, completed with eggs fried sunny side up. It looks quite easy, so I decided to try it on this weekend when we’re home. :)
