Tonkatsu. I don't think of it as a recipe, but the kids were Most Displeased that this was not in the Four Legs section. So now it's there.
We had Shabu Shabu this week and I made the ponzu and sesame sauces from scratch. It was very easy, and will eliminate the half-used bottles in the fridge.
Kim Chee Pork
I made this awhile ago with 4-thumbs up around the dinner table. It rocks over hot rice, and just needs a little tweaking for the pork to enoki mushroom ratio. Really, it could almost be a vegetarian meal.
Updates from the new recipes from this past week. Triple-D recipes were 2-1 this week, with the winners fast-tracked to the Greenhouse. I'll make them once more, just to make sure.
Shoyu salmon sandwiches with ginger/sriacha mayonnaise was definitely a unanimous "Yes." Easy and ono. Mahi mahi, snapper and even a big fish like halibut would work with this too.
Spicy Asian Coleslaw. Also a yes, but I need to take it easy on the Sriracha sauce.
Not all recipes find a home in this house. The sweet potato/black bean empanadas were weirdly dessert-like and too much work, even with wonton wrappers as a shortcut. While I like the idea of black beans, sweet potatoes, a little cinnamon and cilantro, if I make this again, I'll just serve it like mashed potatoes as a side dish.
A rare free Saturday night's all right for getting my electronic recipe drawer in order.
Eat Well. Be Well.
