Quick Chicken Pho

May become my go-to pho ga. Nice on a snowy day. I would recommend making a double batch of broth and chicken because if I’m going to put in 30 minutes in the simmering step, I want more than two servings as a result.

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.

Miso Soup

Once you have the dashi down, homemade miso soup is actually quite easy. Used this recipe for it.

Summer Vegetable Minestrone with Mini Meatballs (Recipe in Progress)

So I almost totally ruined this recipe by basically forgetting about it in the pressure cooker for an hour (don’t leave pasta in the pressure cooker, people. Also, canned beans). But luckily I was able to salvage it by straining out the overcooked elements, and redoing them and finishing it on the stove. I’ve tried to adjust the recipe to make sure others won’t do the same. My broth is still probably starchier than it should be, but whatever.

My plan was to do all-veal meatballs for this, but the butcher shop was closed and I could only find meatloaf mix at the regular store. These two recipes were inspiration though I followed neither exactly. Since this ended up being so complicated, I’ll probably refine this recipe before making it again (probably not involving the pressure cooker, except for maybe to make the stock), but I wanted to get what I did down on paper on account of the Meatball Challenge.

Clean-Out-the-Fridge Tortilla Soup with Pressure Cooker Chicken and Broth

This just turned out so delicious — I hope I can recreate it since this was very much thrown together with what I had on hand.

Meatball Pho Noodle Bowls

Another meatball checked off the list! I’m calling this a pho noodle bowl rather than straight pho because I over-reduced the broth and really just had a small amount of broth with noodles and meatballs and garnishes all piled on top. Didn’t make this any less delicious.

I sort of combined this meatball recipe with this quick pho broth, with a couple of adaptations. We thought this was just terrific, especially the meatballs themselves. I’m happy to know meatballs grill up so well – opens the door to more possibilities.
