Yakisoba

I generally like yaki soba, but it doesn’t really excite me compared to a lot of other Japanese recipes. This was a solid version, though.

Tonteki

Another “Midnight Diner” recipe that we ended up liking quite a bit. I used this recipe as a base (though I doubled it) but cut the meat like a “glove” as I’d seen in several other versions online.

Stamina Udon

I improvised this recipe, but through research found out that a hearty udon that’s heavy with meat, vegetable, and egg is called stamina udon, or sutamina udon. So I’m counting it for the challenge!

Pork Chile Verde (Slow Cooker/Pressure Cooker)

I tinkered with this recipe a bit but the ultimate results were quite good. My beans were not cooked after the recommended 7-8 hours. To fix this, I cooked them under pressure for 20. Other options include boiling on stovetop, soaking ahead, cooking longer.

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.
