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.

Kare Udon with Katsu

I’ve had this at restaurants before. It’s interesting to me that the general approach for this seems to involve leftover curry.

I improvised this recipe for the most part.

Nabeyaki Udon

Second udon of the challenge (soon to be followed by the third). This is something I used to order a lot at a restaurant near my old office. I doubled this recipe with some slight adaptations.

Shrimp and Vegetable Tempura/Tempura Udon

One of my favorite things to order at a Japanese restaurant. Turns it it isn’t too difficult to make at home – but I’ll probably be eating Maneki Neko’s version the majority of the time anyway, as we just aren’t frequent deep fryers in our household. Recipes from Just One Cookbook. Serves two with some tempura left over.

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.
