Gyu-don

Categorised in: | Link of this article

Do you like Wagyu (Japanese beef)? I DO! Actually, I am not a big meat eater but I enjoy Gyu-don because I use good quality Japanese beef. As you see, the ingredients of this dish are beef and onion, it’s kinda fast food. Same as western style fast food shops, there are so many gyu-don shops here in Japan. For me, Gyu-don is a comfort and satisfying fast food. The cooking process of this dish is very simple, choose the good quality meat as much as possible and simmer until the sauce and the juice from onion absorb into the meat. To add extra flavor (and happiness!), I usually add soft-boiled or seasoned egg on top. If you are interested in making the seasoned egg, please check here. Enjoy Japanese cooking!

Tonkatsu

Categorised in: | Link of this article

I always ask my cooking class guests about what their favorite Japanese food beyond Sushi, Tempura and Ramen. One of the popular dish among my guests is Tonkatsu (とんかつ、トンカツ、豚カツ…Yes, they all mean the same dish!) “Ton” means pork, “Katsu” means Cutlet. I understand that some of you cannot eat this dish because of food restrictions and religious reasons. But no worries! You can substitute with beef, chicken, seafood or even vegetables! The recipe to make cutlet is almost same, so please enjoy this crispy savory dish. The tip of making delicious Tonkatsu is to use Japanese bread crumbs called panko and put Tonkatsu in a pan before frying oil gets hot! For the sauce, people usually pour special Tonkatsu sauce. This is Japanese-style thick and starchy sauce made of worcester sauce etc. Since Tonkatsu is such an oily dish, don’t forget to add some vegetables aside (Usually, thinly shredded cabbage here in Japan). Enjoy Japanese cooking!
