One Pot …

Back to a one pot dish (skipped a couple of weeks), some for The Mouse’s dinner, some for The Cat’s lunch. Keeping it simple.

Blanched Pork Belly, Kimchi

The Cat says turnips and pork is a classic combination in Chinese cooking.

Turnips, pork belly, red miso, gojujangΒ (from my Bibimbap lunch), leaf kimchi (just a little bit), water, soju.

Low temp simmer.

First day taste was a little “interesting”. Today, the flavors mellowed and combined. Yes!

Bowl of rice, stew (with gravy). Perfect.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Braised Pork

You’ve seen it done here, at least a couple of times. One of our favorite ways.

This time, a little pork belly, a little pork loin (leaner), miso paste, and some little “extras”.

Not pretty, but very tasty

Stir-fried and braised with ginger, miso, salt. Topped with roasted sesame seeds and green onions. The Cat said easy to eat.

Oh yeah, what’s been keeping us a little distracted lately?

No Recipe

And no ingredients, except for the egg.

Growing up, my favorite Japanese dish was oyako donburi, simmered egg and chicken on rice. Dunno why. Maybe it was easy to eat, maybe it was one of the cheapest dishes on menus? Anyways, it’s still a go-to dish when I dunno what to eat at Japanese restaurants.

Last night, did a little variation at home. Mind you, no chicken, no onions, and no dashi. And, wasn’t feeling like cooking rice.

Started with quinoa.

Instead of dashi broth, did a miso broth.

Instead of onions, thinly sliced celery and white stem cabbage.

Instead of chicken, leftover miso braised pork belly.

Add a beaten egg and let everything meld together. Ease the whole thing over the quinoa.

Tell the truth, this was even better than oyako donburi. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
