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.

Pressure Cooker Meatloaf

I don’t know that this meatloaf was anything to write home about, but it was perfectly fine and made for solid sandwiches when we had leftovers. I wanted to try out the pressure cooker on meatloaf, though. I substituted HP sauce for the ketchup since I am not a fan of the latter.

Tanmen

Totally got Midnight Diner-tastic up in here! This is the recipe they make in the first episode (no noodles for the mysterious cab driver). It’s basically a pork and vegetable stir fry ramen with a very basic broth. I mostly based this off of this video.

Chicken Wonton Soup

This was tasty and fun to make. The only criticism I have is that the wontons got a little gummy, maybe from the corn starch? John is making them and frying them as an appetizer tonight – curious how they will turn out!

Shio Ramen with Chashu and Marinated Egg

I made this recipe a couple of months ago, so it doesn’t count towards the Japanese challenge. I’ve been avoiding putting it online because it’s complicated to write out, and I felt the shio base recipe was a little off (made less than what the recipe seemed to indicate, or their base to water ratio is off). No matter, still worth noting since it was quite the kitchen accomplishment. From my ramen cookbook, Simply Ramen.

Nishyoku-don

This simple ground pork and egg rice bowl was a big hit as part of the Japanese cooking challenge.
