Stick Rice Meatball Dim Sums |もち米シュウマイ

Since and after my gallbladder removal surgery (last November 2015), my ability to digest oil has drastically decreased. It may sound good for dietary purposes and to stay slim but at times limits my creativity to cook, especially the cooking process at times is important to obtain the best taste and results. So….although ‘steaming’ has had been my one of my favorite cooking methods this is another dim sum which is quick easy and tasty on a dinner table for an appetizer. I have used chicken mince meat but if you prefer the more oily meat, go for the pork. Although I love pork, pork is yet quite tricky on my body at the moment so I have used chicken meat instead of pork. (by the way…most dim sums use pork meat) 胆嚢の摘出手術から数ヶ月がたちましたが『油』の摂取能力が上がらず。ダイエットを考えると悪くはない話?と思うかもしれませんが調理方法に制限が出るのは時々料理のクリエイティビィティに左右され時々、、う、う、う、ストレスにもなります。 『蒸し料理』は昔から好きだったの、、また蒸し器を取り出してあっさり飲茶の一品です。 『紅白もち米』で実はおめでたい食卓にも適する一品です。   Sticky Rice Meatball Dim Sums | もち米シュウマイ   1 cup Sticky Rice Tofu (1/2) (To drain water from the tofu – wrap it with paper towel and heat it in the microwave oven.

Tea Soaked Twice Cooked Chicken | 紅茶鶏

This is my experimental version of the Tea Soaked Twice Cooked Chicken, served at our favorite Chinese restaurant called Ban-Rai-Ken (Shitose Karasuyama) , curious as if I can replicate the dish – of course, without the recipe. The dish can only be served with one week prior notice and is quite exquisite.  Searching through the internet, someone had written that his chicken goes through 5 process of ‘soaking/marinating – drying – steaming – smoking – frying’. Hum…a long process. No wonder it takes a week advance notice.

Juicy & Tender ! White Chicken Sandwich | 超柔らか〜い!鶏胸肉サンドイッチ

Red meat or white meat? The  ‘red meat’ gets the majority of votes, ‘white’ never gets even a glimpse of glory. We all know….white meat is more healthy than red…. but only except for the minority of genuine chicken lovers…. or California where fitness, beauty and health is like a contagious disease….. CHICKEN BREAST IS TOO DRY!!!! is a natural response. Well…here is a introduction to ‘magic cooking – how to make juicy, tender white chicken breast’.  It’s simple and of all, it truly works. I’m not selling the idea for money so just give it a try and your idea towards ‘dry white chicken breast’ will vanish – totally!!!! Turn your chicken breast into a ‘CHICKEN BREAST SOFT JUICY STEAK’ and knock out some few pounds or become an satisfying diet helper. Ooops….my story was supposed to be about this sandwich but superb meat = superb sandwich!!! (This magic cooking was introduced couple of years ago in a Japanese TV program callled ‘tameshite  gatten’ by NHK). 外国ではチキンの肉を『白肉(white meat)』か『赤肉(red meat)』、どちらにしますか?という表現を使います。 白肉はムネ肉のこと。赤肉はもも肉のこと。 ムネ肉は健康にはとってもいいと分かったいるけど、どうもパサパサ、もさもさしているから嫌い〜という意見、多いのではないでしょうか。我家の主人もその一人。 うちの主人なんかはムネ肉は鶏肉だと思っていなかったというのですから鶏さんにはとっても失礼な話です。 しかし、、 『ためしてガッテン!』の番組で紹介された魔法の料理法を会得してから『鶏肉のステーキ』は本当に別物になりました。簡単な準備方法でムネ肉が柔らかく、ジューシーで本当に別物の様に思えます。薄切りにして軽く小麦粉をはたいてソテーにしてもいいし、卵にくぐらせてソテーにしてもいいし。美味しいバゲット(むふ、我家は自家製です)に挟んで好きな具材を挟めばとっても美味しいバゲットサンドの出来上がりです。これからの季節、アウトドア活動、キャンプなどにも便利。 …
