Enoki Bacon - Video Recipe

This is my favorite food that my mom cooks at home. At my home, we eat it with ponzu sauce which is a citrus-based sauce. It is very tasty and refreshing, so please try it out in this way if you have never tried it! It's a great recipe for bento, too :D

In this tutorial, I use Lékué (pronounced LAY-KWAY) Silicone Steam Case. Lékué is unique because it is made from 100% pure food-grade platinum silicone, built to exceed FDA standards. It's microwave, freezer, dishwasher and oven safe up to 260C (500F) degrees. It costs about 50 bucks in Japan but becoming very popular these days.

Another popular product released this year (in 2011) is jelly ponzu (ハウス のっけてジュレ ぽん酢). Jelly ponzu can be spread on anything while traditional ponzu runs over.

Of course you can use ready-made ponzu, or I will show you how to make ponzu sauce from scratch.
