Are you looking for a new satisfying and easy weeknight dinner to add to your repertoire? Try your hand at making Takikomi Gohan! Takikomi Gohan is a Japanese rice dish flavored with dashi and soy sauce, cooked together with a mix of vegetables and proteins inside of a rice cooker. In this recipe, I blend tinned sanma (Pacific Saury, a type of fish popular in Japan especially during the autumn) with hearty shimeji mushrooms, carrots, and scallions.

If you’ve wandered around the Asian grocery section at your local grocery store, you’ve probably seen packages of pho on the shelves. But what is pho? Pho (pronounced “fuh”) is a Vietnamese soup dish made with broth, flat rice noodles, herbs, and meat. Pho is super easy to make at home with ingredients from Bokksu Grocery, but before you do that, you’ll need to know the history of pho first. Read more at Bokksu Grocery! 

Try your hand at amping up a picnic classic with some spice! This quick recipe for Japanese-style spicy tuna salad incorporates the rich flavors of Kewpie Mayonnaise and sweet and spicy Sriracha hot sauce to deliver a punchy and satisfying snack.  Bring some to your next party or throw some together when you need a satisfying, protein-packed bite to eat.  Feel free to swap in other veggies like onions and carrots that also add a satisfying crunch.  You can also experiment by adding a teaspoon of white miso or miso sauce to the sauce mixture instead of adding salt at the end of the recipe for an extra blast of savory flavor.  Read more at Bokksu Grocery! 

As you may know, oyakodon means parent-child (oya-ko) over rice (don). Why? Two ingredients: chicken and egg. Learn to make this classic Japanese recipe!

When the weather has gone from crisp fall air to the dead of winter I can’t think of a better way to warm up than over a pot of something bubbling hot and soupy. Nabe or Nabemono in Japanese means one-pot and is typically enjoyed during the winter time. Multiple ingredients like napa cabbage, tofu, mushroom, or sliced beef are simmered all at once in a stock inside a clay or cast iron pot. The flavor of the base soup can be anywhere from light kombu to soy sauce or miso. In this recipe you’re only minutes away from a tasty one-pot meal. The key here is the Daisho Chanko Soy Sauce Nabe Hot Pot Soup Base that is packed full of flavor and saves you from having to make your own base soup from scratch. All you need to do is prep a few ingredients and heat them within the soup for a delectable meal that will warm you from the inside out! Get cooking with Bokksu Grocery! 
Meet the Miso Mackerel Mixed Rice or Takikomi Gohan or Gomoku Gohan (which translates to rice cooked with meats, vegetables and herbs or 5 ingredients rice.) This recipe is insanely easy and packs a crazy amount of umami from the Miso Mackerel and Hondashi. It’s also a great way to use up any items in the fridge, freezer or pantry for a quick weeknight meal. In this version I’ve simplified and adjusted the process that not much preparation is needed. You can however choose to fancy it up – the world is your oyster! By using a rice cooker a meal is only a button away.

Hot pot is a simple term that doesn’t do justice to this glorious winter meal that is eaten all over Asia. The concept of hot pot is straightforward. You have a pot of simmering flavorful broth in the center of the table, and you have separate plates of raw meat and vegetables that you place into the broth and cook until tender. Hot pot goes back at least 1000 years to Mongolian horsemen who brought the dish with them as they traveled to northern China. The Mongols were on to something, because hot pot has something for everyone, from meat lovers to seafood lovers to vegetarians. And hot pot is the perfect dish to warm you up on frigid evenings.

It goes without saying that Ramen gets all the attention in the noodle soup world, but in my opinion udon deserves a spot to shine on the podium! Did you know that there are at least 11 types of udon served in different regions of Japan? They range from different thickness, shapes, and even incorporating potato starch into the wheat flour mix! The history of Udon is just as complex and rooted in centuries of Japanese culture. To make restaurant-like udon can sound very daunting, but today I am sharing a Udon Noodle Soup Hack using Myojo Tokusen Udon, Cook Do Beef & Pepper Stir Fry Sauce, and Dynasty Sliced Bamboo shoots. This combination will bring out so much flavors and crunch you’d think you’re sitting inside a Udon restaurant and will leave you smacking your lips for more. And hey, the weather is getting chilly and this udon soup is the answer to a warm belly and soul. Enjoy! Read more at Bokksu Grocery!

Till this day the sight of this dessert will always remind me of the Japanese anime Doraemon, and I can't help myself but hum the tune of the show (AN AN AN tottemo daissuki DORAEMON). The Dorayaki is pretty much a pancake sandwich where semi-sweet red bean paste (Ogura) is generously spread in between two 3” sized honey pancakes. Nowadays you can find different types of fillings inside the Dorayaki like custard, chestnuts, and even fruits. In this version I simplified the process by using pre-made pancake mix and put a twist of flavor by incorporating Matcha powder and Ricotta cheese. What’s great about these little snacks is you can quadruple the recipe below, wrap the finished Dorayakis in plastic and store them in the freezer for a month! Read more at Bokksu Grocery!
