Tips to Enjoy Yakiniku Indoors (Japanese Grilled Meat / BBQ) - Video Recipe

In this video, I will show you how to enjoy Yakiniku indoors :D

Last week, I won a package of beef at the recipe contest. And along with the beef, I received a letter with some tips to enjoy Yakiniku indoors and I never knew them! So, I will share those tips with you!!!


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvktrBRSvyQ

Yakiniku is mostly beef but you can make it with chicken or pork or meat of your choice ;)



BTW, in Japan at home, we usually use electrical barbecue called "hot plate " to cook Yakiniku at table. I really envy those who have barbecue set at home! We don't have that big yard in Japan, you know… And sadly, from this April, our closest BBQ spot is going to close because of the littering problem.

---------------------------------
Yakiniku Indoors (Japanese Grilled Meat / BBQ)

Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 10min
Number of servings: n/a

Ingredients:
beef or meat of your choice
soy sauce + wasabi (in tube or freshly grated)
ponzu sauce (citrus-flavored soy sauce: you can mix 1 tbsp. soy sauce and 1 tbsp. lemon juice to make it)

Tips:
1. Color of the Meat:
Pink, red, brown, or etc… what color of the meat is the best?
To answer this question, it is difficult to tell which is better until you eat them. So just ask the butcher and trust them. hehe
2. The best way to cook Yakiniku:
Make sure you let the meat get back into room temperature before you cook. You will see the surface of the meat shining with its own juice and grease when it's ready. Then you don't have to turn the heat down to low to cook and you won't lose any good flavor! That is why outdoor barbecue is always good (because your meat is at room temperature). Of course it is the best if you have BBQ grill set at home, but if you don't, you can use a grill pan, cast-iron skillet, or fryingg pan on the stove, because the key is the meat temperature! It is the same for Sukiyaki, Shabu-Shabu, steaks, etc…
3. The best way to eat Yakiniku:
Don't forget to season the meat with salt and pepper before you cook. That definitely brings out the flavor of the meat. For the sauce, wasabi soy sauce or ponzu sauce is the best! Simple yet delicious! You have to try it out.

*Grill the meat until it's done to your taste!

Mille-Feuille Tamagoyaki (Rolled Omelette) - Video Recipe

This is a cute idea for Tamagoyaki (Japanese rolled omelette). I made it to look like Mille-feuille, also known as the Napoleon (pastry originating in France).

My darling doesn't like sweets but he loves bacon, so he was really happy with this idea :)


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_Vci1i18RI

FYI: Tamagoyaki (dashimakitamago or atsuyakitamago) is a Japanese rolled omelet. It is often served for breakfast with white rice and miso soup. Also, it's one of the most popular dishes for bento (lunch box).
My mom makes sweet tamagoyaki, but some people make salty one. The flavor differs from house to house. In addition, to make it colorful, we sometimes add fillings in it.



---------------------------------
Mille-Feuille Tamagoyaki (Rolled Omelette)

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 20min
Number of servings: 6 pieces

Necessary Equipment:
18x13cm (7x5.1inch) tamagoyaki nabe (rectangular omelet pan)

Ingredients:
2 bacon strips
2 sliced American cheese
2 eggs
mayonnaise
1 grape tomato
cracked black pepper
olive oil

Directions:
1. Beat eggs in a bowl, season with cracked black pepper, and mix well.
2. Cut bacon strips and sliced cheese into halves, and make pairs.
3. Heat olive oil in a tamagoyaki nabe (rectangular omelet pan) on low heat, pour 1/5 of egg mixture in the pan and spread over the surface. Cook it until half done and place bacon and cheese. Then roll the egg. Move the rolled egg to one side, pour another 1/5 of egg mixture in the space and under the rolled egg. Cook it until half done and place bacon and cheese. Roll the egg again. Repeat this until all your ingredients are gone.
4. Allow it to cool and cut it into 6 pieces. Also, cut the grape tomato into 6 wedges.
5. Garnish with mayonnaise (to look like whipped cream) and grape tomato wedges (to look like strawberries).

Many people asked me if my bacon is raw because it is pink. To answer that question, it is cooked already. Japanese bacon is sold cooked, so you can eat as is like ham ;)

Datemaki (Sweet Rolled Omelet) - Video Recipe

Datemaki is one of the dishes I cook for our Osechi-Ryori (traditional Japanese New Year's food eaten during the first three days of the New Year). But it is also great for bento :) It looks like Tamagoyaki (rolled omelet) but the texture is fluffier and tastes bit sweeter. Ready-made ones are very sweet but if you make it at home, you can control the sweetness, which is good for your health!


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bi3V_q4dbEQ

Each dishes that make up Osechi-Ryori has a special meaning celebrating the New Year (such as good health, fertility, good harvest, happiness, long life, etc...) and those dishes can last for a couple of days in the refrigerator or at cool room temperature in winter. Usually, they are served in jyubako (重箱: three-tiered bento boxes). In the first tier, we serve colorful festive dishes such as shrimp, black beans, sweet chestnuts, etc... In the second tier we serve sunomono (pickled dishes) and yakimono (grilled dishes). And in the third tier, we serve nimono (simmered dish) called Nishime (simmered Japanese vegetables).

Datemaki is for the first tier. I mixed some leftover minced vegetables from decoratively cut vegetables of Nishime to make them colorful and pretty!



Practice makes perfect, so I hope you learn how to make Datemaki by the end of the year ;)

---------------------------------
Datemaki (Sweet Rolled Omelet)

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 30min
Number of servings: 4

Necessary Equipment:

tamagoyaki nabe (rectangular omelet pan) regular frying pan is okay if not available
makisu (bamboo sushi-roll mat)

Ingredients:
A

* 2 tbsp. sugar
* 1 tbsp. sake
* 1 tbsp. mirin (sweet sake)
* a pinch of salt
* a bit of soy sauce
B
* 1 tbsp. minced carrot
* 1 tbsp. minced shitake mushroom
* 1 tbsp. minced mitsuba (Japanese wild parsley)
cooking oil

Directions:
1. Place A in a blender / mixer and process until smooth.
2. Add B and gently mix them with a spoon.
3. Heat cooking oil in a tamagoyaki nabe (rectangular omelet pan), pour the mixture in the pan, cover, and cook over low heat for 10 minutes. Check if the bottom is brown or not. If the pan is too hot, cool the pan on a wet towel to prevent burning. After the bottom sets, flip over and cook the other side.
4. Cover the bamboo sushi-roll mat with plastic wrap. While it is hot, score with a sharp knife to prevent breaking, roll the omelet, fasten with rubber bands and allow it to cool until it sets.
5. Cut it into thick slices and serve.

You can bake in the oven, too!

2 sliced cheese or 35g (1.3oz.) pizza cheese or any cheese that melts
180cc water
olive oil

Drain and squeeze the spinach to remove the excess water (use paper towel if you have).
2. Cut off the root ends of the spinach and cut into small pieces. Cut bacon into small strips. Roughly mince onion.
3. Heat the pan and saute the bacon until oil comes out. Add onion and saute until tender. Then add spinach and season with salt and cracked black pepper. Cool down until you can touch.
4. Place the gyoza wrapper in your palm and place a small spoonful of filling in the center. Put water along the edge of the wrapper by fingers, fold into semi circle, gather the front side of the wrapper and seal.
5. In a microwavable container, put water and cheese (cut into small pieces). Microwave for about 2 minutes until the cheese slightly melts.
6. Heat olive oil in a frying pan, place gyoza, cook on high heat until the bottoms become brown. Turn down the heat to medium, add melted cheese water (5.), cover and steam the gyoza on high heat until the water is gone and cooked.
7. Serve with balsamic vinegar.

It goes great with wine! Perfect for bento, too!

Yakitori - Video Recipe

On the weekend, there was a small festival at our residence (condo) and my darling (chef TJ) was assigned to cook Yakitori. Thanks to my darling, I did nothing but could shoot this video! I hope you like it!!!

This video will show you how to grill Yakitori (skewered chicken) with gas Yakitori grill! Of course you can use your BBQ grill!


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_jtgDGMEDxk

It was very interesting to know how to become a Yakitori vendor! hehe

In the very beginning of the video, I will show you what other food stalls were there at the festival! So, please watch carefully ;D



---------------------------------
Yakitori

Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 10min
Number of servings: as many as you want

Necessary Equiptment:
bamboo skewers
yakitori stove

Ingredients:
boneless chicken thigh (or any meat of your choice)
yakitori sauce or salt

Directions:
1. Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces (remove the skin if you prefer).
2. Thread chicken onto skewers (with long onion if you prefer).
3. Tare (Sauce): Begin grilling the chicken on both sides without the sauce. When the meat is done, dip into the sauce and grill lightly. However, sometimes it gets too smoky if you grill with the sauce, so we didn't grill it with the sauce but dip it into the sauce to finish. Ebara's Yakitori sauce works amazingly delicious in that way!
4. Shio (Salt): Sprinkle some salt on the chicken and grill the chicken on both sides until done.

We used Ebara Yakitori Sauce (エバラ やきとりのたれ) - for professional use
The household use looks like THIS :D

Takoyaki - Video Recipe

Takoyaki is a popular Japanese dumpling made of batter, diced octopus, tenkasu (tempura scraps), beni shoga (red pickled ginger), and aonegi (green onion), topped with okonomiyaki sauce, mayonnaise, aonori (green laver), and katsuobushi (bonito flakes).

When I was small, I cooked Takoyaki once a month at home. My mom gave me the pan we used then. However, as you can see, the cast iron pan is not easy to use. I recommend you getting a non-stick Takoyaki pan online! It is affordable and saves your time! haha



FYI:

Asparagus Kanitama

Kanitama (芙蓉蟹) is a Chinese omelette with crab meat topped with sweet and sour sauce. It is very popular home-cooked meal in Japan. You can add any kind of mushrooms and/or vegetables, but today I will show you mine adding asparagus. The rich flavor of asparagus makes it really yummy!!! To make it familiar, I used consomme cube instead of Chinese soup for the sauce.

---------------------------------
Asparagus Kanitama

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 30min
Number of servings: 2

Ingredients:
100g (3.5oz.) asparagus
4 eggs
110g (3.8oz.) shredded crab meat
1 tbsp. sake
75g (2.6oz.) onion
salt and cracked black pepper
vegetable oil
A
* 150cc water
* 1/2 consomme cube
* 1 tbsp. ketchup
* 1 tbsp. soy sauce
* 1 tbsp. rice vinegar
* cracked black pepper
1 tbsp. katakuriko/corn starch mixed with 1/2 tbsp. water

Directions:
1. Mix A in a pan and bring to a boil. Put katakuriko/corn starch mixture in the pan and stir quickly until thick and stop the heat.


2. Put shredded crab meat in a bowl and sprinkle sake.




3. If you have thick asparagus, peel the lower section (hard part) lightly with a vegetable peeler, and boil the asparagus (1-3 minutes depending on size) in the salted water until al dente. Cut the asparagus diagonally into to 2 inch pieces. Chop onion.

4. Beat eggs in a bowl and add crab meat, chopped onion, and asparagus in it. Add a bit of salt and cracked black pepper to taste.


5. Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan over medium high heat. Spoon the mixture (4.) into the hot pan and form a round patty. When one side is done and nicely browned, turn over with a spatula and cook the other side.

6. Reheat the sweet and sour sauce (1.) over low. Serve the omelet on a plate and pour the sauce over. It doesn't matter if the asparagus popped out of the omelette.



My original recipe in Japanese is here.
