Salmon Teriyaki Donburi

This is a recipe I never remembered to put online. Hopefully I’ll actually remember it.

Chirashi

I’m calling this a work in progress because I didn’t get the sushi rice right. I used this recipe to make it but it came out too starchy – maybe I didn’t rinse it enough? My sister, who helped me with this dish, gets credit for the lovely presentation. I’ll try making sushi rice again and file as a separate recipe when I get it right.

Tantanmen

This ramen was SO GOOD. And a lot easier to pull off than the other recipe I made. You do need to purchase some weird ingredients and invest some time in simmering the broth, but the results are delicious.

Battleship Curry

Another terrific Japanese curry recipe (this one from Japanese Soul Cooking), inspired by the curries made on Japanese naval ships. This makes a ton. You can really have fun with it and top it with a rice bear.

Beef Bowl

Mmm, beef bowl. Not sure if I prefer this recipe or the one I made previously, but both are great. And I still am not good at poaching eggs.

Kare Udon with Katsu

I’ve had this at restaurants before. It’s interesting to me that the general approach for this seems to involve leftover curry.

I improvised this recipe for the most part.

Nabeyaki Udon

Second udon of the challenge (soon to be followed by the third). This is something I used to order a lot at a restaurant near my old office. I doubled this recipe with some slight adaptations.
