New tips for the Japanese style hamburg steak

Today's dinner

I was so hungry after coming home from work that I cooked too much...


*onion gratin

onions became soooo sweet!

*Japanese style hamburg steak

New findings for the sauce- see below

*seafood chijimi (supposed to be korean pan cake)

*Taiwaneese pickled cucumber (made by my housemate yesterday)

I love this

*boiled cabbage with sour sauce and shaved bonitos

*seafood in milk soup

*spinach miso soup

***New findings***

This time, I didn't boil the hamburg steak sauce with radish.

In this way, you can enjoy the texture of the shaved radish better.

I also used a microwave to heat up the sauce rather than boiling it in a pot.
Then the sauce becomes sweeter than last time.

Japanese style sweet egg breakfast

Today's breakfast

I had some time in the morning so I cooked full breakfast today.

Good breakfast gives you a lot of energy for a day.

It took me less than 30mins to get everything ready.


*BBQ pork (this was cooked by my bf)

*Pickled cucumber

*Pickled radish

*Kimchi (from Oriental Spoon- their kimchi is the best)

*Japanese style sweet egg (dashimaki tamago)

*tofu and onion miso soup

*white rice

***Pickles are easy to make and are good for breakfast.
You can cook them a night before and eat it on the next day :)
You can also preserve them for a long time. It's a good side dish for a busy morning.
