NO OVEN! Cheese Tart in a Frying Pan - Video Recipe

You don't need an oven :)
Crunchy crust and moist cream cheese filling. yummy!!!


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJgR90_-W_4

Just make sure you pan fry it on a very low heat or it can burn easily.



---------------------------------
NO OVEN! Cheese Tart in a Frying Pan

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 1hr + cooling time
Number of servings: 8inch (20cm) frying pan

NOTE: Ingredients are listed in both American and metric measurements. However, please use a kitchen scale (metric measurements) to get a perfect result.

Ingredients:
((Crust))
50g (4 tbsp.) butter *room temperature
3 tbsp. granulated sugar
1 egg yolk
100g (1 cup) all-purpose flour
((Filling))
100g (1/2 cup) cream cheese
3 tbsp. granulated sugar
100ml whipping cream
1 egg
2 tbsp. lemon juice
a few drops of vanilla extract
2 tbsp. all-purpose flour

Directions:
((Crust))
Cream the butter in a bowl. Add sugar and mix until white and creamy. Add egg and mix well. Sift in flour then mix well with a spatula. When the crust starts to crumble, use your hands to mix together until formed. Press the crust evenly into the bottom and up the sides (about an inch high) of the frying pan. Lightly prick the bottom of the crust with a fork.
((Filling))
Microwave the cream cheese at 500w for about 30 seconds until soft. Put in a bowl and mix until creamy. Add sugar, whipping cream, an egg, lemon juice, vanilla extract, and flour in order and mix well until smooth.
((Cooking))
Fill the cream cheese filling into the crust. Cover and cook on very low heat for about 30 minutes. The bottom of the crust burns easily, so you may want to place the pan on a wet towel to cool down the pan a little bit after every 10 minutes or so. Cool completely and chill in the fridge before removing from the frying pan, or the crust can crumble.

You can bake in the oven at 180C (350F) for 30~40 minutes.

Aji no Nanbanzuke (Horse Mackerel Marinated in Sweet Vinegar Sauce) - Video Recipe

Nanbanzuke is a Japanese home-cooked meal with deep fried meat or fish, marinated in sweet and spicy vinegar sauce.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QUGPIyH20y8

Aji (horse mackerel) is in season in Japnan from May to July :)
You can substitute it with other fish or chicken, too!



---------------------------------
Aji no Nanbanzuke (Horse Mackerel Marinated in Sweet Vinegar Sauce)

Difficulty: Medium
Time: 30min
Number of servings: 4

Ingredients:
8 fillets horse mackerel = 400g (14oz.) *other fish or chicken is OK
salt
flour
3 tbsp. sesame oil
100g (3.5oz.) onion
120g (4.2oz.) color peppers (green/red/orange/yellow)
1 dried red chili pepper
marinade
* 4 tbsp. vinegar (rice or cereal)
* 3 tbsp. soy sauce
* 2 tbsp. sugar
* 50ml Kombu Dashi soup stock

Directions:
1. Thinly slice onion and color peppers. Boil for just under a minute to remove the bad smell and bitter taste. Then drain well in a colander.
2. Slice the horse mackerel fillets diagonally into pieces. Dust both sides with salt and flour. Heat sesame oil in a frying pan. Cook both side until crisp, golden and cooked through. Transfer to a flat dish. *You can of course deep fry the horse mackerel.
3. Thinly slice dried red chili pepper. Mix the marinade and the dried red chili pepper. Then add the vegetables and toss. Pour it over the horse mackerel and marinade for over 10 minutes, then serve.

After 10 minutes, fish meat is very soft. After a day, the flavor soaks well and the fish meat becomes firm (condensed). Both are delicious! You can keep it in the fridge for 2-3 days.

Baked Okaki / Kaki no tane (Rice Crackers) - Video Recipe

Easy and crunchy rice crackers using an oven! Round Mochi will look like Kaki no tane (famous rice crackers look like persimmon seeds).


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=15jbvd_jfrg

I used the leftover Issho Mochi from my daughter's 1st birthday.
Issho Mochi is a Japanese traditional ceremony, having an year-old-baby carry 4lb (1.8kg) rice cake on the back in hope that the child will have enough food to live on.
https://youtu.be/c0o9F3kbWkY?t=1m51s



---------------------------------
Baked Rice Crackers (Kaki no tane)

Difficulty: Super Easy
Time: 2~3 days + 20 minutes
Number of servings: 2~3 servings

Ingredients:
3 round or square Mochi (rice cake)
1 tbsp. soy sauce
1/2 tbsp. sugar

Directions:
1. Thinly slice Mochi. Leave to dry for 2~3 days.
2. Preheat the oven to 356F (180C).
3. Line parchment paper on a baking sheet, place Mochi, then bake in the oven at 356F (180C) for 15 minutes.
4. Mix soy sauce and sugar in a bowl. Coat Mochi with the sauce, then drain well.
5. Again place Mochi on the parchment paper. Bake in the oven at 302F (150C) for 3~4 minutes. *Soy sauce can burn easily, so please watch out.
6. Leave to cool completely until the sauce dries out.

Putting silica gel (desiccant) packet together inside an air-tight container would help to keep the rice crackers crisp over a week or more!

How to Make Monjayaki - Video Recipe

Monjayaki is a local dish of Tokyo. It is a type of Japanese pan-fried batter with various ingredients.

Ingredients are similar to Okonomiyaki (Japanese-style savory pancake) but very watery and less solid.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5ur3irStaA

My darling is from Kansai (関西: the western region of the main Japanese island) so he prefers Okonomiyaki to Monja. LOL

To eat, you use a tiny metal spatula to scrape off the small portion of the cooked mixture. Obviously, it damages the pan, so I prefer to eat it out at the restaurant. haha

Number of servings: 2

Ingredients:
500ml water
3 tbsp. flour

50g (1.8oz.) Tenkasu (crunchy bits of deep fried flour-batter)
((you can add other ingredients))
kimchi, seasoned cod roe, cheese, corn, tuna, Mochi, noodle snacks, etc…

Directions:
1. Place the solid ingredients on the pan. Cut and cook the ingredients.
2. Form the ingredients into a donut shape, then pour the batter in the middle of the donut and bring to a boil.
3. Mix everything up and leave it to be cooked. Eat by scraping off and browning a small portion of the mixture.

* 1/2 tbsp. oyster sauce (or vegetarian stir-fry sauce)
* 1/4 tsp. salt
* 1 tbsp. grated ginger
* cracked black pepper
24 gyoza wrappers
1 tbsp. sesame oil

Directions:
1. Wrap the cabbage with plastic wrap and microwave at 500W for 3 minutes until tender. Finely chop the cabbage then squeeze in paper towels to remove excess water.
2. Finely chop the onion, sprinkle with a bit of salt, then wash and drain well with paper towels. *in this way you can remove the bitter taste and bring up the sweetness of the onion.
3. Finely chop the carrot and the long onion.
4. Mix 1-3 in a bowl, then mix in starch to let it absorb the water.
5. Add A and mix well.
6. Place the gyoza wrapper in your palm and place a spoonful of filling in the center. Put water along the edge of the wrapper by fingers, fold into semi circle, gather the front side of the wrapper and seal.
7. Heat sesame oil in a frying pan, place gyoza, cook on high heat until the bottoms become brown.
8. Turn the heat down to medium, add 50ml water (or about 1/3 of their hight), cover and steam the gyoza on med-high heat until cooked. Uncover and cook on high heat until the water is gone and crisp.

This Gyoza is already seasoned but you can serve them with a mixture of vinegar, a little soy sauce, and a few drops of la-yu if you like.
