head was super fresh!

meat was very sweet & tasty, and not fishy, with the flavours of miso & the fragrant light soy sauce.

grilling gives a slight charred skin & wonderful grilled flavours, the sauce dries up a bit so more intense, and the more fatty parts of the flesh near the belly combines well with miso & light soy sauce, are not chunky in texture like the steak or fillet parts, so perfect la!

Beautiful Japanese Chashu (using the Miso Belly Pork Preparation)

chashu 6hrs in 90degC oven

chashu 6hrs in 90degC oven

did a very good chashu yesterday on 19.12.2015. ^^

used my new miso belly pork method, reduced 1 hr to 6hr at 90degC.

for the marinade, i used 1 tsp flat sugar, 2 tbsp light soy sauce, 2 tbsp mirin, 2 tbsp sake, 1 chilli padi, 1/2 red onions cut into 4, 2 tsp chopped garlic.

texture was perfect! very tender & retaining some bite. 🙂

the tender braising at lower temperature did the trick, & the gelatine released made the pork very flavourful.

to make it easier to cut, i still left it in the fridge overnight.

Nikujaga=Japanese Braised Beef with Potatoes

nikujaga = japanese braised beef brisket

was planning for a japanese theme dinner next month for friends & looking up recipes. i do a good miso belly pork & nobu miso cod currently, and my pan-fried angus or wagyu steak is a crowd favourite. so was thinking to add a braised beef starter & reading up the nikujaga (japanese braised beef & potatoes) recipe which used brisket or beef ribs, and the equivalent korean galbi jim recipe. 🙂 another dish i thought of adding was karei no nitsuke (simmered flatfish). that would make it a good 5-course dinner.

nikujaga = japanese braised beef brisket

i had a 350g beef brisket in the freezer which i had intended to try out hong kong styled clear beef brisket soup (清汤牛腩) but had not started. & i had the other ingredients in the kitchen so this was an easy dish to prepare & cook. 🙂

i cleaned & diced the brisket to 1in pieces, and diced the carrot,potato, sliced the yellow onions & cut the bunch of spring onions in 2in stalks + slices for garnishing. i also sliced a 1in ginger & had 2 teaspoon minced garlic ready. for the braising sauce, i mixed the mirin, sake, light soy sauce & white sugar in a bowl.

i added 1 tablespoon oil to a dutch oven & added ginger, garlic & the diced brisket to lightly brown over medium heat, then added the braising sauce + water (can use chicken or vege stock) to cover the beef, and brought to boil. i transferred to an induction heater & set to 200W (which was enough to simmer & not boil off the water too quickly). i braised for 1.5hrs & added the carrot, potato & spring onion stalks, and braised for a further 3/4hrs, so total time about21/4hrs. reduced the liquids to get a more intense flavour but enough not to dry up. when the potatoes broke when pressed against the wall of the dutch oven, the braise was ready. i garnished with sliced green onions & served.
