Japanese Cooking and Recipes - 05-06-2007, 03:56 AM

Hey, since I'm getting ready to go back home from college. I tend to get bored when I'm at home because there's nothing to do in the suburbs. So to cope with my boredom I want to cook some Japanese dinners for my family, and so my stepmom can stop complaining about her weight ! Any receipes or ideas please private message or talk about it on the board thanks !

Ive tried making "Saba no Miso" or Mackerel with Miso

I changed the style a little bit for my own taste. But the 3 main ingredient is the one listed below.

Ingr. Mackerel, Miso, 1 teaspoon of vinegar, broth cube ( optional ), water

Mix water and vinegar and bring to boil ( the water will depend on your amount of fish , you can also increase the amount of vinegar )

Add Mackerel as soon as water starts boiling, boil for about 1 minute.

Mix miso and water and maybe broth cube ( i did not use broth cube )
Optional: I added a teaspoon of mirin and cooking wine.
Then put the boil mackerel and bring to boil in a medium heat for about a minute or 2. And then your done

Found this in a 5 min. cookbook , but as I said I change/add some more spicies

Simple Recipes - 05-10-2007, 08:45 PM

I'm looking for simple recipes that you can traditionally order in Japanese restaurants. Please keep the preparation time down to under an hour though, because school gives me little time to cook intricate meals. I need to increase my cooking skill by learning new recipes instead of just repeating old ones.

Much appreciated,
Jefe

Thanks, that sounds simple enough.. but what kind of noodles? (Ramen would be my guess, but I've never seen a package labeled as that in a store)

1) Pocky is one of the best foods on earth. Tell your mother to RESPECT THE POCKY!! xD

2) Here's a good recipe for pork stir-fry--->

1/2 cup green onion, sliced
1/2 cup celery, diagonally sliced
2 cups pork roast, diced
1 tablespoon fresh garlic, finely minced
2 tablespoons oil
3 cups cooked rice, cold
1 cup water chestnuts, canned, sliced
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt (or hot salt)
1 egg, slightly beaten
pinch of hot pepper flakes or cayenne, to taste
2-3 tablespoons soy sauce

Sauté onions, celery, and pork in oil until vegetables are tender crisp.
Add rice and water chestnuts. Combine pepper, salt, egg and soy sauce.

Stir into rice mixture. Cook, stirring 2 to 3 minutes or until heated.

....and sometimes I add 1-1 1/2 cup snap-peas. But that's just me.

As for good school foods, Sometimes I bring instant ramen to school in a thermas. It keeps it warm, but if your not careful, it'll pour on your lap when you open it...-_-"

I'll add more recipes, if you like Hope I helped.

Hope you like it. I knew a girl last year that told me that talking to your boiling ramen water makes it cook faster. I tried reading to it.

i boil water and cook the noodles from the package (instant ramen; nice and cheap!) for about 8 minutes, then drain the water and pack it into a thermos so it stays warm till lunch. my friend's dad owns a japanese resturant, so she gets to bring sushi but she eats it all and usually has something i dont like. she did bring onigiri one day! oishii desu!!
