Home Cooked Japanese Curry with Rice
It's so beef-ily delicious and I was so tempted to take more than one helping!
Ingredients (to feed 5):
3 medium carrots, 5 small potatoes, 1 medium red apple, 2 yellow onions, some garlic, beef chunks (for soup), Japanese curry sauce, water
Chop carrots and potatoes into bite-sized chunks. Chop apple and onions into mini dices. Chop garlic coarsely or slice them if you like. Cut beef chunks into smaller cubes.
Sweat onions and garlic over butter in a deep pot, add beef and stir fry until beef changes color. Add carrots, potatoes, and apples. Add water and simmer for 20 minutes over medium heat.
Add Japanese curry sauce and keep stirring to avoid burning. Turn off heat when you get the consistency you want.
Kimchi Soondubu Jigae with Chicken
I had this wonderfully hot and spicy kimchi dish at Dubu-Dubu, Mid Valley while I met up with my high school friend. Landmark: Besides Spaghetti Farm.
What's a Korean meal without kimchi, right? So I went for a steaming bowl of Kimchi Jigae with chicken, tofu, and of course, kimchi. A bowl of brown rice topped with sesame seeds and three side dishes (braised beansprout, kimchi, pickled radish) are also served.
The soup is a bit too spicy for my liking but if you love spicy kimchi soup, you should try this dish.
Note: Dubu-Dubu serves halal Korean dishes.
