It has been hot in the past two weeks. When it is hot, it is not very pleasant to cook in my apartment. It gets really hot in the kitchen, especially when I have the oven on. It is like a sauna. I would sweat like a pig. To prevent this, I tried to cook something fast and easy or not “cook” at all. This spicy tuna rice bowl is the perfect no-cook meal. It tasted light and delicious. After you have tried this, you will never need to buy spicy tuna bowl from outside. Have fun making it and enjoy!
When I go to a Japanese restaurant, I always look for gyoza in the menu. Some places have really good homemade gyoza, but some other just use pre-made frozen gyoza. In that case, it is better just to make your own gyoza. Since making gyoza is a bit time-consuming, I tried to make many at one time. The leftover can be stored in the freezer for later. These little gyoza had crispy skins and juicy fillings. The garlic chives gave the gyoza a strong rich flavors and the cabbage balanced it out. When I made the gyoza, Bryan and I would only ate them for dinner. Pile and pile of gyoza!
Sushi memo! They are just perfect for your school notes and office memos!
After trying Benihana, it is hard to not think about their fried rice. This recipe is my version of Japanese fried rice. It may not be the same as the Benihana one, but it is absolutely delicious! I used sausage instead of chicken. It is more convenient, and it added some smoky flavor into the fried rice. The crushed garlic is the key. Remember to put it in! This is the only fried rice that I made. I usually made 4 servings, therefore Bryan and I can save the rest for lunches. I really don’t mind eating this everyday!

Many of the main Japanese dishes have a hint of sweet. This rice bowl is the same. The savory of the crispy pork chop is perfect with the sweet onions, eggs, and broth. Even though I didn’t use dashi broth and I only used water, my sister and I both agreed that this dish just tasted like the one in restaurants. The original recipe is a bit too sweet, so I reduce the sugar to 4 tablespoons in the following recipe. I believe this should just be right now. Give this a try! I think you will really like it.
