Oyako Don(Chicken and Egg Donburi) for saturday lunch OIISHII!!
First off, I made dinner last night but didn't post pics of it as I had done a similar entry before(it was steamed fish and stir-fry kailan).I figured nobody wanted to see another boring post of it=)
Yesterday, hubby and myself went to an exclusively japanese oriental grocery store downtown called New Tokyo Market thereabouts.The food selection was miniscule and everything prepackaged.Not fresh ingredients we were hoping for(they had interesting magazines albeit pricey there though).Feeling rather disappointed, we drove back to our usual oriental market(Lam's) which was just a couple of minutes away and made some good japanese purchases there.
Konbu or Kelp(US2.09) for making soup stock
Fermented Soy Bean Paste(US2.99) a humongous packet for making Miso Soup
2 pieces of washed konbu placed in 1 liter water to simmer NOT BOILING.About 45 minutes or so later, mix in 2 tablespoonsful of soy bean paste for miso soup.I added small florets of cauliflower and tofu in it.
How to for the chicken:-
one chicken breast(sliced,lightly marinated with salt, black pepper, light soy sauce) and one white onion were browned in a hot skillet sprayed with PAM, before pouring in some soup stock(ie prior to adding the soy bean paste).Allow the entire contents to slowly simmer.Then 2 tablespoonsful of mirin(jap sweet cooking wine), 2 tablespoonsful of rice wine and 2 tablespoonsful of light soy sauce.Cornstarch to thicken the mixture.Serve.Slightly sweet and salty.Very delicious.
Some rice at the bottom of the donburi bowl, chicken and onion stir fry in the middle, crack an egg at the top.Garnish with parsley.I ODed on the parsley*blush*
Miso Soup middle of this picture in the white bowl.In japanese restaurants, they serve miso soup in smaller individual bowl per person but i was feeling real lazy today:p Apparently, miso has many healthy benefits like improving blood circulating, reducing high blood pressure etc.I will definitely be preparing more of this broth for my husband.
