Asian Rice Cakes with Pork

I’ve made variations on this dish twice and keep forgetting to post it – and then forgetting the recipe because it’s an impromptu one. Let’s hope this one’s close, as I really like rice cakes and this meal was a big hit both times. 302 more words

Hambagu Steak / Dueling Hambagu Meatballs

It was John’s idea to have hambagu steak in curry sauce for dinner this week. This is a dish we had in Japan at Denny’s, of all places (yes, Denny’s is quite different in Japan). 409 more words

Katsu Sando

I was kind of obsessed with getting these at train stations in Japan. It’s kind of a weird dish – a pork cutlet sandwich, served room temperature on white bread – but for some reason it works (and is actually fairly easy to make). 158 more words

Stuffed Cabbage-Inspired Porcupine Meatballs

These were decent, if not mind-blowing.

I made up the recipe inspired by my typical take on stuffed-cabbage. I’m not sure the rice added much here, but I’m curious to make some sort of porcupine meatball again starting with uncooked rice to see if there’s a texture difference. 178 more words

Volcano Potatoes

I made these for dinner tonight, and I couldn’t wait to post my review of them….because they were awesome AF!

The prep time is lengthy, so prepared to wait and wait….and have your family ask repeatedly “are they ready yet?” However, the end results were sooooooooo good and well worth the wait! 161 more words
