Okonomiyaki-Style Omurice

I absolutely love the idea behind omurice (fried rice omelet, which I’ve been making with Chinese leftovers before I even knew it was a Japanese dish). But I am not a fan of ketchup, which plays into many versions of the dish. Not this okonomiyaki-influenced one, though. We adored the flavors here. My omelet was a little messy but still rather impressive, I think.

Pork Hambagu Steak

Another Japanese recipe for the challenge. I followed this recipe as a guide (a new one since I made this dish before) but used all pork because that’s what I had on hand. So good!

Char Siu

One of the best things I’ve made in recent memory. And so versatile — planning to use the leftovers in both soup and fried rice.

My recipe is inspired by this one from Nom Nom Paleo but I made some non-paleo ingredient subs.

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.
