Basic Stuffed Cabbage Rolls | Japanese Home Cooking Video Recipe

Japanese Stuffed Cabbage Rolls (we call Roll Kyabetsu) is typical Japanese home cooked main dish that everyone wants to remember. It goes perfect with white rice 😋




I will share with you the very basic simple recipe. Try this first. Then arrange it in the way you like by adding or changing the ingredients 😉

TIPS: Use a pot that fits the cabbage rolls tightly (put the cabbage scraps to fill the openings), then you don't have to worry about the rolling technique. They won't move and open while cooking 💡


Japanese Stuffed Cabbage Rolls
Japanese Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

---------------------------------

Basic Cabbage Rolls (One of the BEST Japanese Home Cooking Recipes)


Difficulty: Medium
Time: 1hr
Number of servings: 8 pieces

Ingredients
340g (12oz) ground beef and pork mixture *any kind of ground meat is ok
1 (200g/7oz) minced onion
1 cabbage (8 nice leaves or more)
1 consommé cube *any bouillon cube is ok
1 tbsp. cooking oil
salt and pepper
nutmeg *if you have
parsley flakes
ketchup *if you like

Directions:
1. Carefully peel up to 16 nice cabbage leaves. Place them on a microwavable dish, cover lightly with plastic wrap, then microwave on medium (600W) for 5 minutes. You can boil in a large pot until soft and drain as well. Shave the core to make it flat if it is too thick.
2. Heat cooking oil in a frying pan, cook minced onion until tender. Add half the amount of ground meat and cook until no longer pink, season with salt and pepper, then transfer it into a large bowl to cool.
3. When the meat is cold enough to handle, add the rest of the ground meat, 1/2 tsp. salt, pepper, and nutmeg and knead well with your hands. Divide it into 8 portions.
4. Place the meat mixture on a cabbage leaf, then roll up securely. If leaves are small overlap small cabbage leaves (2 or 3 leaves) together then wrap.
5. Use a pot that fits the cabbage rolls tightly. Place the cabbage rolls and put the cabbage scraps to fill the openings. Make sure they don't move while cooking.
6. Break the consommé cube in quarters and put them on top, place bay leaves, pour 1 cup (240ml) of water, cover, and cook on medium low for 30 minutes.
7. Place the cabbage rolls on serving dishes. Season the broth with salt and pepper then pour over the cabbage rolls. You can thicken the broth with slurry (1 tbsp. starch diluted with 2 tbsp. water) to make a thick sauce if you like. You can serve with ketchup if you like (many kids like to eat in this way). Sprinkle with parsley flakes to finish.

5-Ingredient Marie Biscuit Strawberry Shortcake (NO OVEN Recipe) | Japanese Cooking Video

Marie Biscuit is a well known snack in Japan. I was organizing our emergency bag and found the biscuits almost expired, so we decided to make Kids' favorite shortcake with a lot of cream 🍰💕


Of course you can use store-bought whipped cream to save time 😉 Enjoy 👍




FYI: Marie Biscuit

Perfect shortcake idea when flour is out of stock 😅


---------------------------------

5-Ingredient Marie Biscuit Strawberry Shortcake (NO OVEN Recipe)


Difficulty: VERY Easy
Time: 15min + cooling time
Number of servings: 3 cakes

Ingredients:
18 Marie biscuits
100ml milk
200ml whipping cream
1 tbsp. granulated sugar
3 strawberries
* You can put some chopped strawberries or fruits inside but I didn't because kids did not want to.

Directions:
1. Combine whipping cream and granulated sugar in a dry clean bowl. Float the bottom of the bowl in ice water, whisk the cream until it forms a soft peak. Then put it in a piping bag.
2. Soak a biscuit in milk for 5 sec (or longer is okay before biscuit breaks). Shake off the milk and place it on a plate. Pipe out the cream, then place another layer of milk-soaked biscuit. Repeat this to complete 6 layers or more or less, as you prefer.
3. Coat with cream, pipe out some whipped cream on top.
4. Cover and place the cake in the fridge for a few hours ~ a day. Biscuits will become soft and fluffy like a sponge cake.
5. Garnish with strawberry on top before you serve.

Light and Crispy Kakiage Tempura (Japanese Vegetable Fritters) | Japanese Cooking Video Recipe

Kakiage is Japanese vegetable fritters, sometimes with seafood. Vegetable strips are the main ingredients. Leftover vegetables are okay! Vegan/Vegetarian people can use Kombu Dashi broth for the dipping sauce 👍




Using round aluminum foil molds, you can deep fry the vegetable strips with less batter coated. In this way Kakiage becomes very light and crispy 😋


You can serve it with rice or Udon noodles for example, as a side dish. Or, you can put on top of rice or Udon noodles to make a bowl dish. It is up to you 😉

---------------------------------

Light and Crispy Kakiage Tempura (Japanese Vegetable Fritters Recipe)


Difficulty: Easy
Time: 15min
Number of servings: 4 pieces of 8cm (3inch) Kakiage

Ingredients
100g (3.5oz) onion slices
30g (1oz) carrot strips
30g (1oz) whole kernel corn
--Tempura Batter
* 1/2 cup ice-cold water
* 1/2 cup all purpose flour
--Tentsuyu (Tempura dipping sauce)
* 100ml Dashi broth (using packaged dashi powder saves time)
* 2 tbsp. Mirin (sweet Sake)
* 2 tbsp. soy sauce
vegetable oil for deep frying

Directions:
1. Cut aluminum foil about 30cm (12inch) long, fold it into quarters lengthwise. Make a ring then fold the ends together to make 8cm (3inch) circle. (please see the video)
2. Place the cut vegetables in a bowl. Add 1 tbsp. of all purpose flour from Tempura Batter, then coat evenly with your hands.
3. Tempura Batter: Mix ice-cold water and all purpose flour. Make sure to use ice-cold water not to activate the gluten. The batter should be lumpy, do not over-mix.
4. Add the vegetables then toss lightly.
5. Heat 5cm (2inches) of oil in a pan to 170C (340F). Place one or two aluminum foil rings (depending on the size of the pan), then put 1/4 of the vegetables in each ring little by little to form into circles. When the bottoms are cooked, remove the rings, flip them over and cook thoroughly until crisp golden. Then drain well. (Do not deep fry too many at once.)
6. Tentsuyu: In a pan, bring Dashi broth, Mirin, and soy sauce to a boil. You can also microwave until it comes to a boil. **
7. You can eat with salt, with Tentsuyu, or serve on top of rice with Tentsuyu to make Tendon (Tempura rice bowl), etc... it is up to you.

**For tentsuyu, you can use Yamasa's Konbu Tsuyu (3 times concentrated Konbu kelp seaweed soup stock). You just need to dilute it with hot water as directed on the package. This product is very convenient and it is available overseas!

Daikon Mochi (Japanese-style Chinese Turnip Cake 日式萝卜糕) | Japanese Cooking Video Recipe

Crisp outside, moist and chewy inside, coated with addictive sweet soy glaze, wrapped with Nori seaweed sheet, just like Isobeyaki 🍘 Mouthwatering 🤤




If you have tried my Imo Mochi (Potato Rice Cakes) recipe, this Daikon Mochi turns out a bit smaller with almost the same amount of ingredients. But don't worry it is because Daikon radish contains more water! Daikon Mochi is juicy and easier to eat than Imo Mochi. Kids ate well 😉 Please try both and see which one you like 👍

Basic Chahan (Japanese Fried Rice 炒饭 Recipe) | OCHIKERON | Create Eat Happy :)

In Japan, we make Chahan (fried rice) at home using leftover ingredients in the fridge 😋


I hope this very basic recipe will give you an idea to make your fried rice 👍



TIPS: Adding rice at room temperature makes rice drier (not too sticky). Hot or cold is not recommended. To make your rice drier, cook 2 servings at once. Too much rice makes the fried rice moist and sticky.
