Oriental Omelette

Merry Christmas! and I'm writing another receipe for you, Ruth.
…this is the way I cook but someone else has a different recipe so just don't think this is the universal rule. Here we go.

Ingredients (for one person):
1 leaf of cabbage
1 slice of bacon (or more if you want)
few green peas or string beans
1 egg
2 table spoons of pain flour
2 table spoons of water*
some vegitable oil

1. slice cabbage, beans and bacon as thin as you like (but obviously the thinner you slice the faster they will be cooked).
2*. mix an egg, flour and water together in a bowl. I use fish soup instead of water, but I'm thinking chiken broth can substitute this.

Recommended source to eat with:
mix of Wooster source and mayonnaise (this is really GOOD!)
or you can eat with Soy Source, ketchup…

How to Cook:
1. Fry sliced cabbege, bacon and beans with vegitable oil in a fry pan.
2. When they are cooked, add mixture of egg, flour and water on top of cabbge, bacon and beans.
3. When the bottom side is cooked, turn it over to cook the other side.
4. Done. Put your favorite source on top to eat.

Notes: Some people use ham instead of bacon, and add cheese and corn. Potatos can be added as well. It's really anything-goes-in food.

Bon appetit.

Beef Dish Recipe

Writing about web page

I post the recipe for Japanese beef-potato dish (肉じゃが), which you had at Christmas dinner, since Tricia asked me how to cook it. Here it is…

1 large (or 2 middle) size potatos
1 large (or 2 middle) size carrots
1 large onion
200g beef (or more if you want)
some green peas or string beans

2.5 table spoon of Mirin (suger can subsitute this)
2.5 table spoon of Soy Source
2 table spoon of Sake (Sherry can subsitute this)
Water (I use Dashi the fish soup but you don't have to)
some vegitable oil

Potatos – cut small and put them in water, dry before cooking
Carrots – cut in the size smaller than potatos
Onion – cut into 8 pieces
Beef – slice it really thin

How to Cook:
1. Fry beef with vegitable oil in the pan.
2. When beef is cooked, add potatos, carrots and onion, then fry them together a little bit.
3. Add water in the pan till it fills about 2/3 of the hight of vegitable. Make sure you don't put too much water in. (*add a cup of Dashi if it is available, and use less water.)
4. Add 2 table spoon of Mirin (or 1 table spoon of suger), 2 table spoon of Soy Source, 2 table spoon of Sake, stir, then boil a bit at full heat. Then, turn the heat low to boil until the water reduces into about a half of its original volume. (This may take 10–20 minutes, depending on how much water you put in the pan.)
5. Stick potatos and carrots with a fork to see if they are well cooked. If they are well cooked, add the remaining Mirin and Soy Source. If you like sweeter taste, then add a little bit of suger in.
6. Add green peas or string beans on top, and turn the heat high to finish. (Peas/beans are for coloring, and not mandatory thing; just it looks nicer if we have more colors in the dish!)
7. Turn the heat off, and you are done.

Note: Sake is available at Tesco on the Sherry shelf of alcohol section though it is not the greatest rice wine on the globe. It is rather sweet, and I prefer drier sake… If you go to the Japanese food shop, then you can probably find cooking sake (料理酒) and that's something you can use for cooking.
