It goes without saying that a Japanese meal is not complete without a soy-related component. Soy sauce, tofu, and miso paste, all derivatives of soy bean processed ingredients are known to be a healthy source of protein and seasoning (minus the sodium added).
The Japanese izakaya dinner recipes continue with a savory addition. While this week's recipe is probably not one of the healthiest, it definitely is one of the most delicious and satisfying. Buta no kakuni or “square simmered pork” is a perfect dish to accompany a bowl of hot rice or just by itself when you're having rounds of sake or drinks.
If you are a fan of rich food, this recipe is sure to provide both, the delicately cooked pork belly texture with the umami-packed broth.
Its is almost Friday again! Generally that would mean a lot of drink followed by a bad bad hangover. Today I want to share one of favorite cure for hangover (at least guaranteed to be very yummy), Salmon Ochazuke! Ochazuke is a common dish served at the Japanese style bar or Izakaya. There is no general rule on how make Ochazuke, it really depend on what you like to eat and for me that mean salmon and roasted rice tea (Genmai-cha).
