Japanese cooking; Katsu Don (Pork cutlet bowl)

 If you ask me what Japanese dishes that I like, Katsu Don (Pork cutlet bowl) will be one of the top 10 list.

Pork cutlet bowl (Katsu Don) is basically, deep-fried pork cutlet and sliced onion are cooked with beaten egg in the soy – mirin-dashi sauce and then place it over the hot steamy white rice in the bowel.

Katsu is “deep-fried pork cutlet” in Japanese. If you did not have pork in your freezer/fridge, you can use veal cutlet or maybe cubed beef steak pounded to thin and deep fry them or maybe you could pound the chicken breast into thin and bread it and deep fry them.

These days, I do not deep fry things as much as I used to. Recently, I thought of Kstsu Don and thought that I could cook it up and actually our little son Liam could eat them as well.

Therefore, I decided to make one for all of us for lunch. It was a tasty quick meal and best thing of all, Liam loved this dish as well and, I can make it again whenever I thought of making it again for all of us:-)

In this entry, I would like to share the quick easy Japanese dish;Katsu don (Pork cutlet bowl) recipe.

Katsu don Jan 29 2016

Katsu Don (Pork cutlet bowl) …..

Ingredients for Katsu (Deep fried Pork cutlet);

Ingredients;

Pork tenderloin sliced into 1/4″ thick medallion,12 medallions for 4 servings
Morton’s Natures seasons
flour
1 egg lightly beaten
Japanese panko bread crumbs
vegetable oil

Ingredients for sauce;

Ingredients;

Konbu (dried kelp about 2″x3″-4″)
6 tbs soy sauce
6tbs mirin
3/4 Sweet onion sliced
1 whole egg lightly beaten per serving
1 tbs or so frozen green peas

<Rice>

1.First,you want to start cooking rice. Rice takes longer to be done.

Rice used for Japanese cooking, my personal choice brand, is called “Kokuho Rose Rice”. You can find them at local grocery store such as Wegman’s, Walmart at international aisle or if you have ASian market, they would probably have one too. If you could not find it still, actually amazon carry it too. Cook them accordingly to the direction on its back of the package.

<Sauce>

1. Place a sauce pan over stove top, and pour 14 oz of water (400 ml water), 5cm x 8 cm size (about.. 2 inch x 3 or 4 inch size) konbu (Dried kelp).

** You can find it in International aisle of local grocery store but amazon carry it as well.My favorite brand is Shirakiku brand.

2. You could make dashi first and then can add soy-mirin. But I tend to make sauce while making Dashi.

3. Add 6 tbs soy sauce (I love kikkoman brand bottle imported from Japan), 6 tbs Mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine.I love Mirin imported from Japan) and slice about 3/4 of  sweet onion and put those onion into mixture of water,konbu, soy sauce,mirin and cook

** Once it boiled, turn down the heat to simmer and keep cooking with lid on

<Katsu (Deep fried Pork cutlet) and assembling>

1. While sauce is cooking, prepare to make Katsu (Pork cutlet)

** I usually use Pork tenderloin. Slice it into about 1/4″ thick medallion and pound them thin with meat mallet or back of the knife and sprinkle Morton’s Nature seasoning, and flour them,dip them into beaten egg and roll them onto Panko bread crumb. Then, set it aside on the plate.

** I like to use shallow frying method which makes your pork cutlet cook through faster and healthier than cooking in the deep frying.

** When 1 egg to dip into is gone, you do not need to add in more egg.You can add in water a little bit and stir and use that after dredging the cutlet onto flour.

2. Pour about 1/8″ or half the depth of oil in the big non stick skillet when placing panko crusted pork cutlet in the oil to fry.

3. When oil gets heat up, place the panko crusted pork cutlet in the skillet gently and fry them to deep golden and when it is done, prepare the plate with paper towel on and let the cutlet rest on the paper towel so it would drain extra oil off in the cutlet

4.When everything is done, place 1 qt sauce pan on the stove top and scoop up some of cooked onion in konbu-soy-mirin-water mixture from other sauce pan and pour about 1 ladle worth of sauce in the 1 qt sauce pan

5. Slice the cutlet into about 1/2″ width strip and when the sauce got bubbly, turn the heat to low simmer and put the cutlets to soy sauce mixture in the 1 qt  sauce pan,and  pour the 1 beaten egg slowly into the pan (aim at outside edge of pork cutlet in the sauce) clock wise motion and let it cook through

6. When the egg is almost set, sprinkle frozen green peas about 1 tbs per serving or so and let it heat through the green peas

7. Put rice on the bowl, put cutlet with egg and Onion onto rice by sliding it out

** My husband does not like to eat egg cooked in the sauce and what I usually do is as following

His meal: put rice,top it with Katsu,scoop some onion, and pour some soy sauce mixture without egg.He likes it that way

If you had leftover Katsu,make Katsu sandwich. Bread,cutlet, mixture of ketchup+Worcester sauce,sliced tomato,lettuce and you have big sandwich for yourself to enjoy!

If you like to make Katsu for Party scene,you can make Kushi Katsu. Kushi means toothpicks.Basically, skewed little pork cutlet with onion. I know my husband loves this but it is so time consuming and I tend to make Katsu more than Kushi Katsu. Here is how you make it.

1.  Cut boneless pork chop to strips and sprinkle Morton’s nature’s seasoning, slice onion

2.Take a toothpicks,skew them in order of Pork chop strip,onion,pork chop strip,onion and flour them,dip them into beaten egg, and roll onto Panko bread crumbs.

3.Then,deep fry them.

4.You now made Kushi Katsu.Sauce I make is usually mixture of Worcester sauce+Ketchup.

When you hear Japanese cooking, it has impression of all complicated cooking but it actually is not so.

If you have got basic of our flavor:Soy sauce,Sake,Mirin,Rice vinegar, you probably can make thousands of different kind of Japanese dishes.

Enjoy!

Japanese cooking; Japanese style strawberry shortcake

When I came to the states, one of the things that gave me culture shock was a strawberry shortcake.

It was in FL state where my parents in law took everyone to FL.

At one street vendor place, my mother in law or my father in law asked me if I would like a strawberry shortcake.

I love strawberry shortcake back home so, I said “Yes” with no hesitation.

Well…. what I got and what I imagined in my head was very different.

Back home, strawberry shortcake is staple birthday cake  and this is also popular at Christmas time (On Christmas day, we eat special meal and finish the great dinner with strawberry shortcake) and it consists of sponge cake layered with whipping cream and fruits (strawberry) and decorated with whipping cream and strawberries.

Both sponge and whipping cream are not heavily sweetened like typical American cakes.

These strawberry shortcakes are very simple, but tasty and they are fluffy light cake.

Over here, apparently, strawberry shortcake is very different from ours and it consists of crumbly biscuits layered with whipping cream,  macerated strawberries and top it off with another layer of biscuit.

If you ask me one thing that I miss from Japan is Japanese style cake. They use a lot of fruits for color,flavor and cakes tend to be light and not so sweet.

I miss them and every time I go back to Japan, Japanese cakes are in my to do list,lol.

Anyway, recently, my husband had birthday,and I have made “Japanese style strawberry shortcake” with twists.

If I could use liquor in it, I would have because I love baking/making dessert with liquor.

However, because of our little prince, I did not use any liquor. If you use liquor, you could mix Marsala (sweet) wine mixed with sugar and soak the sliced strawberry and use that to decorate the cake/use it as filling.

Or, you could add bit of Lemon cello in sponge along with fresh lemon zest.

Or, you could add in brandy/whiskey in whipping cream. 

I like to use liquor like that.

This time, I made strawberry peach shortcake Japanese style. Peach is good for color and taste. I really liked it and so did my husband and our little prince.

Because I knew that prince Liam would eat the cake as well, the cake and whipping cream got lower sugar amount but it was good enough to enjoy.Not too sweet, not too bland.I liked how it came out actually.

I now bake with weight of the ingredients for consistent result. Therefore, you would not see as much measuring cup amount for each ingredients.

Strawberry Peach short cake Jan 17 2016

Strawberry peach shortcake..

Ingredients for fruits layer;

1 whole strawberry uncut except stem off (This single strawberry goes in the center on top layer)

145gram (5 oz) sliced strawberries

30gram ( 1 oz) canned peach thinly sliced (this is for top layer)

Ingredients for  whipping cream;

400ml heavy cream
2tbs white sugar

** You would have extra whipped cream. You can use the leftover whipped cream in strawberry shortcake sandwich that I make here and there when I got extra whipped cream.

  1. On the white bread, smear the whipped cream and top it off with chopped fresh berries and fold into half and eat

Ingredients for Sponge cake;

120 gram (4.25 oz) unbleached all purpose flour
120 gram (4.25 oz) white sugar
20 gram (0.7 oz) butter melted
4 eggs

<Whipped cream>

STrawberry Peach Short cake base Jan 17 2016

2. preheat the oven at 355F

3. Over a bowl, place kitchen sieve and pour 120 gram (4.25 oz) unbleached all purpose flour,and shift through and set it aside

4. Melt the 20 gram(0.7 oz) butter and set it aside

5.  In another bowl, place the kitchen sieve and shift through 120 gram (4.25 oz) white sugar, and to that, add 1 egg and start beating the egg and sugar and add 1 egg at a time (totaling 4 whole eggs) at a time

6. When the mixture gets whiten in color (about 7 min on med speed) continue mixing 3 more minutes or so until the mixture is fluffy,and drip down to the bowl like ribbon and the dropped ribbon prints stay when you stop the mixer and lift it up.

7. It is time to add the shifted flour. Add flour to the egg-sugar mixture with small amount at a time and stir gently with wooden spoon

** As a kid, when my mother and I were making sponge, she taught me to move the wooden spoon as if you will draw the number “11” and then, move the wooden spoon gently as if you will draw circle from closest to you, about a few times or till added flour gets evenly mixed well

8. Scoop up one ladle worth of egg-sugar-flour mixture into small bowl and add in butter and mix well. Then, pour it back into the egg-sugar-flour mixture and mix gently as much less stir as possible.

** If you overmix the batter,it would not puff up well.

9. Pour the half batter into one pan and another half batter into other pan, and place kitchen towel on top of the counter and gently toss the pan from about 4″-5″ height about 10 times to get the air bubbles in the batter gets out

10. Bake about 25 minutes or until toothpicks inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean

11. When baked, remove it from the pan when it got cool down a little

Makes: 2 count of 9″round sponge

<How to assemble>

1. Place one round cake on the plate, and smear it with whipped cream and decorate it with sliced strawberries (stem cut side out,tip side inner) around the edge and then more in the center 

2. Sprinkle chopped canned peach over strawberries

3. On other plate, place one layer of cake and smear the whipped cream and put the whipped cream side over the fruits top

4. smear the whipped cream on top layer and smear the edges with whipped cream

5. When all covered with whipped cream, decorate the very top layer with strawberry and peach. I like to decorate it with sliced strawberries on outer edge this time stem cut side in tip side out alternating with sliced canned peach and then decorate the center part with more sliced strawberries this time tip side out, stem cut side in and place the whole uncut strawberry right in the center

6. Serve

Strawberry Peach Shortcake slice Jan 17 2016

Makes; 1 cakes ( ” round cake)

** If you had more time to spend in the kitchen, and you had more strawberries you need to use up, you can make strawberry jam.

You can cut stem off and chop to about 1/2″ and heat it with bit of sugar and cook it down til thicken.

I like to enjoy strawberry jam toast once in a while.

Enjoy!

Yassy’s note;Liam in NICU;Baby massage for constipation

In the previous entry titled “Yassy’s note;Liam in NICU; Baby massage on legs and feet“, I wrote while Liam was in NICU,during the second week, me and my husband learned about the baby massage.

In this entry, I would like to share how you can use baby massage to ease the digestion problems such as constipation.

For overall baby massage information and how to baby massage on legs and feet,please read the previous entry “Yassy’s note;Liam in NICU; Baby massage on legs and feet”.

Also for the information as to how to massage arms and hands, please read the previous entry  “Yassy’s note;Liam in NICU; Baby massage on arms and hands

For the information as to how to massage face and chest, please read the previous entry  “Yassy’s note;Liam in NICU; Baby massage on face and chest.”

For the information as to how you can manage the problems associated with summer using the baby massage tequnique, please read the previous entry  “Yassy’s note;Liam in NICU; Baby massage for problems in summer.”

Baby massage 1-2-3..

Sit on the floor with your baby right in front of you on the blanket.

Start with a gentle conversation to your baby.I used to talk to Liam while I touch/stroke his head to catches his attention.

If the baby were quiet ,calm, and in gentle mood, then gently massage baby’s body section by section.

Massage is not like recipes for one dish. You would work section by section first. Then, when the baby got used to the whole idea of being massaged, then, you can do a few techniques in one session.

If you see your baby yawning,trying to get away from you or crying etc (sign of stress) ..,stop  the massage and done for the day.

For today, I will introduce you how you can use the baby massage on trouble shooting the specific problems.

These are something that I learned through my Japanese e-magazine.

Baby massage for constipation

  1. When babies got constipated….

Especially during the summer, babies get sweat a lot and there are occasion when they tend to not  being able to hydrate themselves enough. When that happen, from lack of hydration, they can become constipated.

When that happen, it is good to do the baby massage exercise where babies can move legs or tummy to stimulate the intestine.

Here are some technique you can use.

Letter “の” ;Japanese alphabet letter pronounce “No”…

  • Place you hand on baby’s side (left side) and gently move you hand toward right hand side, and then moving towards left,moving towards right, moving towards left (gentle rub).Do this about 5-10 times
  • Then, place your hand right below the belly button and write the letter ; move your hand toward bottom and then move just like drawing circle from bottom

According to my Japanese e-magazine article, by massaging with this technique gently on tummy, you can improve blood circulation and stimulate the intestine (digestive system).

Since large intestine move food from left to right, letter の on tummy does great on baby’s constipation problems.You can give the gentle tummy pressure by doing this so it makes them easy to poop out.

You can use this technique for gas/burping problems too.In fact, I was using this for Liam’s gas/burp problems when he was 0 year old. The way I imcooperated this into tummy massage is that, I added only 1 set into tummy massage.

 Magazine suggests to try 1 set each; one set is 5-10 times and this exercise is good for babies from newborn (0 month).

Bicycle

  • Hold baby’s ankle so your thumbs will be on your baby’s heel
  • Then, gently move one leg towards tummy as if their leg/knee gives gentle press on their tummy.
  • Then, moving the leg back down and moving other side of leg up toward tummy so their leg/knee is giving gentle pressure on their tummy
  • Do this slow at first but when babies got used to the exercise, you can do this exercise rhythmical way saying 1-2-1-2.

According to Japanese e-magazine article, by moving legs toward tummy and give the tummy a gentle pressure the baby’s tummy muscle gets strengthen, and makes intestine works more active.

This exercise is also done with Liam. He actually thought that it was some sort of game and he had fun doing this.

Magazine suggests to try 1 set; one set is 5-10 times and this exercise is good for babies from newborn (0 month).

Butt swing…

  • Place your hands under the baby’s butt and gently lift the butt up a bit and gently swing the butt from left to right,left to right.

          You need to make sure that the baby’s shoulder is not up lifted when you do this.If it was, then, you are lifting the baby’s butt a little high.So,lower the butt and swing.

According to my Japanese e-magazine article, by singing body, poop or gas inside the tummy gets to move and it stimulate the intestine and it works great for the constipation problems

Magazine suggests to try 5-10 times and this exercise is good for babies from newborn (0 month).

You can also give gentle pressure on baby’s back of the foot with thumb from toes side to pinky side all the way down to bottom. This is because there is the pressure point to stimulate the intestine.

More baby massage entries continue. Stay tuned!

Yassy’s note;Liam in NICU; Baby massage for problems in the summer

In the previous entry titled “Yassy’s note;Liam in NICU; Baby massage on legs and feet“, I wrote while Liam was in NICU,during the second week, me and my husband learned about the baby massage.

In this entry, I would like to share how you can use baby massage to trouble shoot the specific problems.

For overall baby massage information and how to baby massage on legs and feet,please read the previous entry “Yassy’s note;Liam in NICU; Baby massage on legs and feet”.

Also for the information as to how to massage arms and hands, please read the previous entry  “Yassy’s note;Liam in NICU; Baby massage on arms and hands

For the information as to how to massage face and chest, please read the previous entry  “Yassy’s note;Liam in NICU; Baby massage on face and chest.”

Baby massage 1-2-3..

Sit on the floor with your baby right in front of you on the blanket.

Start with a gentle conversation to your baby.I used to talk to Liam while I touch/stroke his head to catches his attention.

If you see your baby yawning,trying to get away from you or crying etc (sign of stress) ..,stop  the massage and done for the day.

For today, I will introduce you how you can use the baby massage on trouble shooting the specific problems.

These are something that I learned through my Japanese e-magazine.

Baby massage for trouble shooting

  1. Improving the immune system during the summer

During the summer, being hot outside and getting chilly by air conditioner makes it easy for babies to get ill such as getting cold or heat exhaustion.

When babies spend great amount of time in super cold room by air conditioner, it will disturb the autonomic nerve and it makes them feeling tired, and it also lower the gastrointestinal function.

Therefore, massaging the baby and encouraging the good blood circulation and activating the organ function can help them feel better..

Here are some technique you can use.

Leg swing

  • Place a couple of drops of oil in your hands and rub your palms together. Make sure you are not wearing jewelry.
  • Place your each hands on baby’s each ankle and gently swing their leg side to side but be careful not to lift their butt up.

According to my Japanese e-magazine article, by swinging baby’s legs gently like this would relax the muscle around that are connected from legs to the butt and muscle around back.

When muscle is relaxed, blood circulation gets better.

Magazine suggests to try 5-10 sets and this exercise is good for babies from newborn (0 month).

Thumb press

  • Hold baby’s foot so your thumbs will be on your baby’s back of the foot
  • Then, using both of your thumbs, gently press about 10 times all over the foot.Do the other foot too.

According to Japanese e-magazine article, back of the foot got the reflexology spot where peripheral nervous system is gathered.

That spot is connected to organs.Therefore, massaging the back of the foot like this would help those organs to be active.This is the reason why it encourages the better digestion as well.

This technique works good for constipated babies;those who cannot poop for many days.

Magazine suggests to try10-15 sets and this exercise is good for babies from newborn (0 month).

Helping the babies to cope with summer cold

For stuffy nose..

  • Place a couple of drops of oil in your hands and rub your palms together. Make sure you are not wearing jewelry.
  • Place your third finger on both side of nose (in between eyes) and gently slide the finger from bridge of nose towards cheek

By massaging the bridge of nose like this,it stimulates nasopalatine nerve and it helps open nasal cavity and it encourage the nasal mucus comes out easier.

Magazine suggests to try 5-10 sets and this exercise is good for babies from newborn (0 month).

For the coughing

  • Place a couple of drops of oil in your hands and rub your palms together. Make sure you are not wearing jewelry.
  • Place both hands over chest and gently draw circle towards side, by moving your hands up towards shoulder.

According to my Japanese e-magazine article, by drawing circle towards side, bronchial tube gets open and help them breathe easier and easy for them to get phlegm out

Magazine suggests to try this until coughing gets calm down. This exercise is good for babies from newborn (0 month).

When they are coughing a lot…

  • Pick up your baby and hold him upright facing toward you, supporting his butt with your arm. Then, with your other side of hands, tap his back gently
  • Then, rub his back gently from top to down,top to down

According to my Japanese e-magazine article, by holding your baby upright, respiratory tract gets straighten up and it makes babies to breathe easier.It also makes them easier to spits out the mucus stuck in the respiratory tract.

Magazine suggests to try this until coughing gets calm down. This exercise is good for babies from newborn (0 month).

For the eye goop (eye discharge)

  • Place a couple of drops of oil in your hands and rub your palms together. Make sure you are not wearing jewelry.
  • Place both of your third fingers on the corner of the eyes and gently move the fingers as if following the eyeball line over the eyelids and go all the way down to the side of the nose hole.

According to my Japanese e-magazine article, tears come out through nasolacrimal duct that connects eyes and nose. Therefore, if you massage the nasolacrimal duct area,tears can run through better.

Magazine suggests to try this about 5-10 set. This exercise is good for babies from newborn (0 month).

Stay tuned for more on baby massage.
