Wanna invite me by, I have some mean moon sake and a secret stash of really good Tamari.

I also have pretensions of making a halfway decent Oshi-sushc...

Annnnd here we go!


Tropical Storm Teriyaki Chicken
Korokke, Fried Potato Croquettes with homemade Tonkatsu sauce
Sunomono, Cucumber Salad
Romaine Salad topped with homemade Ginger dressing
Rice
Frozen Kiwi Fruit Slices


Tropical Storm Teriyaki Chicken
Jaccard tenderized and marinated in teriyaki sauce for six hours
Grilled one side to get some char on them and not overcook once in the skillet.
Finish in skillet to get a killer glaze set on them.



Korokke, Fried Potato Croquettes
Boiled Russet potatoes, drain and return to pot over med heat to dry them out, and then mash them.
Brown some ground beef, saute some onion, combine and add to mash, season to taste with salt, pepper and maybe a little garlic.
Form into patties and chill.
Dredge patties in flour, egg and Panko.
Chill to set the Panko.
Deep fry at 350° till a deep golden brown, it's goes fast, just a few minutes.
Top with, Tonkatsu, Tare or Yum Yum sauce.











Sunomono, Cucumber Salad
5C Cucumber, halved, seeded and sliced thin
(Use Kyuri (Japanese) if you can find them, I use English)
1C Rice vinegar
4T Soy sauce
3T Mirin
4T Sugar
4t Sesame oil
Sesame seeds
Marinate/Chill for a hour or two, drain and serve



Ginger Dressing
1C chopped Carrot
1/2 chopped Onion
3T chopped Ginger
(About a thumb sized knob, peeled)
1T sugar
1/2C Rice vinegar
1/4C Soy sauce
1/2t salt
3/4C Vegetable oil
Place everything but the oil in a blender and blend well.
Taste and adjust if needed before adding oil.
Pour mixture into a mixing bowl and slowly whisk in oil till emulsified.



Tonkatsu sauce
1/8C each Apple and Plum puree
1/4C Ketchup
1/4C Worcestershire
2t Soy sauce
2t Oyster sauce
1t sugar
Blend everything together well.
*** Make this sauce a day or two before.
It needs time for the flavors to meld and taste right.

I was thinking about you while making the Tonkatsu sauce.

Looks great. I might have to put the Korokke, Fried Potato Croquettes and Sunomono, Cucumber Salad on the menu. Will pass on the delious looking chicken , not a fan of sweet sauce or glaze. Maybe a Miso Marinated Flank Steak instead.

Point and like

Awesome spread. I'll be doing the chicken and the potato dish. Though I did have to Google "Jaccard tenderizer"!

Thank you.
When you make the Korokke be sure to well season the mash and or mince mix, you want it nice and savory.
If you don't like sweet skip the Tonkatsu sauce too, maybe a Tare if not too sweet.

Oh My!!
A lot of good looking stuff, right there!!
And ever since I had the best Teriyaki Glaze in my life, 50 years ago, in Honolulu, I've been trying to match it. Still haven't gotten there yet.
Nice Work, John!!
