Braised Teriyaki Chicken With Spicy Rice Sticks

> > Braised  teriyaki chicken tastes more intense of teriyaki sauce than grilled or sautéed teriyaki chicken, because the braising process allows the sauce to penetrate the meat much better than marinating and then grilling or sauteing would. However, if you only like your chicken skin crisp, this preparation might not be for you. But if on […]

Pork Medallions Teriyaki With Rainbow-Carrots In Honeybutter

> > This  is a typical meal as I prepare it at least twice a week lately – lot’s of veggies and fruits, some protein and as little starch and refined sugar as possible. It is all in the balance, so some days a small amount of sugar and starch versus some days with none of […]

Japanese Pork, Korean Rice Cakes And French Beans (Teriyaki Feast)

> > While  the ingredients for this dish (and the cooking methods) are not exactly a traditional combination, for my personal palette they compliment each other perfectly.

Steak Salad “Saigon”

> > The  foundation of this steak salad is a refreshing rice stick salad, which I usually make at least twice a month. I normally make about four to six portions and eat it as part of a meal, as breakfast or as a late night snack. The noodles keep their texture for a few days without getting […]
