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.

Hot Pot for One

I made this quite awhile back, but noticed I’d never put it on the site when rifling through my database of ideas for the Japanese cooking challenge. Amended! Another one from Just One Cookbook that’s inspired by Midnight Diner. Already having dashi made makes for a very quick meal.

Grilled Pork Adobo

Portions here were a little skimpy but this was a pork chop marinade we quite liked.

Pork and Asparagus Stir Fry

We liked this simple recipe from Nom Nom Paleo. I adapted it just slightly and served over cauliflower rice.

Gyoza

A successful Japanese recipe on the books! To be fair, I also made negamaki less successfully – since mine fell apart, I’m going to leave this one off the website, but note for Japanese Challenge tracking purposes.

These gyoza were a big hit with my friend Rachel and her two kids, who love dumplings. They aren’t terribly hard, either – just time consuming, especially to wrap. This is from my Japanese Soul Cooking book.

Wonton Meatballs

Why yes, I do still make new meatball recipes. I thought these would have a bit more flavor, but my friends liked them well enough, and it’s an interesting recipe.
