Which do you serve for breakfast a freshly cooked rice or a tasty fried rice?
Our family loves a freshly cooked rice every meal specially for breakfast, the kids find the rice from the rice cooker soft and easy to eat. Although we prefer a freshly cooked rice over fried rice I thought I whip it up a little and surprised them with a tasty fried rice for breakfast one weekend. I made them salted egg and dilis fried rice, we first had it at Kuya J in Cherry, Congressional Avenue when we dined it for dinner and we loooved it.
The recipe is easy to make and very, very tasty, I love how the salted egg adds texture to the rice, it made it fun and exciting to eat. 🙂 Here’s the recipe:
When I discovered chasu can be rice toppings too and you can make it with all the available recipes you can find in your local wet market. 🙂 I’m like: YES!
I’ve always known Chasu as ramen toppings. 🙂
Turns out it’s really nice with rice. The combination of chasu with spring onions and Japanese mayonnaise is really good.
This is originally Slide’s recipe since he’s obsessed with ramen, he learned to make it at home and play with the ingredients using locally available ingredients.
It’s something we should all add in our menu at home. 🙂
Chashu is a dish made of fat cuts of pork that are braised over low heat for a very long time. It’s like you dump everything in a pot with low heat and forget it for an hour. 😛
The kids love it, I think because of it’s sweet savory flavor and because of the fact that I served it in cute Japanese bowl with chopsticks. 🙂
Usually the recipe calls for pork belly or pork face but in this recipe I used pigue since that’s the only pork available in my freezer. The Japanese version of this recipe uses, Sake and Mirin but I’m saving my mirin to make sushi rice so it’s a bit untouchable. 😛 Slide uses Sprite sakto instead of mirin and sake and it works fine that’s why I thought I call this recipe, Pinoy Style. Chasu is really easy to make and you can find all the ingredients in your local wet market. Here’s the complete recipe:
Besides the usual rice and chicken, pork, and beef for mealtimes I discovered a couple of quick and easy recipes using Gold Seas Tuna Chunks.
Gold Seas Tuna Chunks are healthier and tastier alternative to your usual menu plus it offers gourmet flavors that appeals to everyone in the family: Elise, loves Tuna Chunks in Olive Oil with Chili; Lily likes the Tuna Chunks in Herb and Garlic; Slide’s favorite is the Mild Indian Curry; and I loooove the Lemon and Pepper. 🙂 I love it so much I madea pasta dish.
You can whip it up in less than 25 minutes, it’s fun to make and very easy too. I used vegetable shape pasta for this one, a handful of capers and of course, Gold Seas Tuna Chunks in Lemon and Pepper.
Here’s the complete recipe.
