I really didn't want to start my own thread, but I didn't see any other "Dinner, /ck/?" threads. So anyway,
What are you having for dinner?
I made okonomiyaki, because it's easy and uses ingredients I usually have.
(Inb4 weeb, it's hard to live in NorCal and NOT eat lots of asian and weeb food.)
I had homemade sashimi for my dinner last night. So freaking good.
you only need a bit of seasoning and something crunchy to make raw meat really fucking satisfying imo
like capers and toast or soy and daikon
with 'nothing else' it's still perfectly palatable just a bit boring
>implying you're not a weeb
It's okay man, you don't need to hide your power level here. Also can I get the recipe you use? I've been wanting to make Okonomiyaki and yours looks bomb
OP here. Sure, I'll give you the recipe. And no, I'm not a weeb, I don't watch anime (the only two anime shows I've ever watched have been Space Dandy and Cowboy Bebop - oh, and Hamtaro about 10 years ago when my toddler son used to watch it on Saturday mornings). I'm too old to be a weeb. I also get called a hipster pretty often on here, which I'm also not and am too old to be.
For the batter, I used premixed okonomiyaki flour, that I buy at the asian market by my house, but I can tell you the flour mix recipe.
For the batter:
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
about 1/3 cup grated japanese yam (you can leave this out if you want)
3/4/ cup dashi
1/2 cup tempura scraps
1/4 cup pickled ginger
- Combine the flour, sugar, salt, yam, and dashi well, and let rest in the fridge for at least an hour, or up to two hours.
- take it out, and add the eggs, ginger, and tempura bits (I also like to add some minced garlic)
For the additions:
about 1/2 a cabbage, chopped (the amount can vary based on how much the batter will accept)
1 cup chopped shrimp or squid
1/2 lb pork belly slices (you can also just use bacon, which is what I did) cut into three inch pieces
For the toppings:
Add the cabbage and shrimp/squid to the batter, and mix well.
On a hot griddle over medium heat, cook three pieces of pork belly/bacon on one side. Flip over and arrange pieces in a somewhat circular fashion. Heap about 2 cups of your batter mixture over the pork, and push with a spatula into a circular shape. Turn heat to medium low, and let cook for awhile (it takes awhile for it cook, because you don't want it completely raw in the middle) it's ready to flip when you can easily run a spatula underneath it. Flip and continue cooking until it easily flips again.
Remove from the griddle to your plate.
Spread with Okinomi sauce, and then drizzle with mayo. Top with bonito flakes, pickled ginger, crumbled nori, and minced scallions.
I also liberally shake on Nanami Togarashi (red pepper with orange peel, sesame seeds, ginger, and seaweed added) for that extra flavor and heat.
That's it, enjoy!
So, what kind of label would you slap on me if I said I still watch classic Looney Tunes and Tom and Jerry, because that's true too.
I also have a huge collection of 1980s german and austrian new wave, own 26 pairs of cowboy boots, do archery as a sport, and regularly eat at French restaurants? Point being, calling people weebs on here isn't even an insult anymore, it just make you look stupid.
pppfffft.....Eh, don't be too hard on that guy. I'm pretty sloppy at cutting sashimi too, But, I hide it pretty well with my presentation. I always do mine like my favorite local place plates theirs, on a bed of crushed ice with shiso leaves and paper thin slices of lemon, along with the pickled ginger and pickled wasabi.
Oh, and pickled wasabi > green paste all day every day.
how hot was your pan? looks a bit doughy. theres a lot of stuff on top so i might not be the best judge...
working split shifts, so dinner tonight is two peanut bars, a relentless and a yoghurt until i get home at 3am. then i might make a giant fucking omelette.
Oh no, it was fully cooked. If it hadn't been, I'd have slapped it back on the grill. I think you're seeing that piece on the front that was broken and flipped over when I plated it. I cooked it over medium heat, but for longer than I normally would, so the interior would be fully cooked. I don't like mine overly browned, so I cook it at a lower heat for longer time. It's crispy, but not dark brown. Just personal preference.
Last night I had pic related. Salad and sardines in Louisiana hot sauce. Boring yet delicious
Eating the Jambalaya-thingy from yesterday again... made enough to last like 5-6 days 2bh.
Still decent reheated, though obviously the rice gets a little soggy but it's not intolerable.
very nice digits my friend. have a great day!!
tastiest thing i've eaten all week
>i suck with a camera
pretend gyros for me
>go to local supermarket deli section
>two pounds ground lamb please
>points to prepackaged meat
>THAT'S ALL WE GOT
>8.99 dollarydoos per 3/4 lb packet
>... 2 pounds ground beef please
they're still pretty good
Made some Cuban Ropa Vieja.
I fucking love cilantro... And slowcookers.
I also added a bit of sour cream to the burrito.
cooked some butter, honey and garlic powder on the stove, put into a zip lock bag with a chopped up chicken breast. Have it marinating in the fridge now.
Gonna grill it in a couple hours and have it over some rice.
I'm going to be a fucking heathen tonight and make GRILLED chicken parmigiana, because fuck breading and frying shit.
I have my chicken marinating in buttermilk, garlic, and italian spices right now.
My Chicken tortellini soup.
Everything but the tortellini is home made
Spaghetti with capers olives and mushrooms
you dont need to do this, but if you want lamb in it you can. the real thing you need to do is get a food processor, some bacon or fatback or some source of unprocesses (not prerendered) fat. take your ground meat, some garlic (you almost cant overdo it in this case), whatever other greek spices you want, and blend that thing so it makes a sausagey consistancy.
Bake it to set it then crisp it up in a pan.
alterantively if you are not a muslim or jew just make carnitas and stuff in some minced garlic.
heeeeeeeeeey putting the pic in helps.
Welp, to update, I put way too much thyme in and it tasted weird, would've been perfect if not for that
But on the other hand, toasting some fresh bakery bread and then baking it with provolone, swiss, and parmesan and soaking it in the soup was 1:1 in both taste and texture of what they serve in restaurants
Gonna nail it next time
chicken quesadilla with some leftover roast chicken (thighs and breast meat). minced chicken and sauteed with chilli powder, cumin, salt, pepper lime, tobasco. corn tortilla -> refried bean -> lettuce -> chicken -> pico de galo -> cheese -> corn tortilla.
no bulli pls
Was hungry as hell and wanted to make something quick to relax and eat before sleep
>inb4 shit presentation
>tfw you realize there exists weebs so pathetic they buy frozen fish from the supermarket, hack it up into oblong chunks, call it "homemade sashimi", and actually convince themselves they've done something good.
Used what I had, including yellow pepper, mushroom and sweet onion. Was delicious.
Deep fried Aubergines with oregon batter.
Feel like i've drunk the whole bottle pf oil but damm that's good
I miss white bread. Parents stopped buying it when I was a child, and I haven't bought bread since I moved out. I should get around to it on a cheat day.
I made baked chicken stuffed with spinach, fresh mozzarella, garlic, and sun dried tomatoes. Topped with Parmesan, fresh basil, and a size of butter noodles
The SO somehow accidentally ate half a box of cookies for breakfast and then requested a "healthy" dinner, so I made the most stereotypical healthy dinner I could think of.
Baked tilapia with a mustard and lemon sauce, kale sauteed with garlic, and brown rice.
Pretty boring, but not half bad.
Eggs Benny with smoked salmon. Was divine. Niggas who can't poach eggs ain't my nigga.
A better pic of my friend's serving
I do need new plates god these are so ugly
Yes you need new plates, take those back to the yard sale you got them from. Took me a while to see your dish in the camouflage but they look good famicom
