Beef Teriyaki vs Beef Garlic (2)

July 10, 2020

I make another Beef BBQ but this time I use Gyudon beef. The difference is, there’s no fiber so it’s very soft.

As usual, I used Teriyaki Sauce and Garlic. I like the teriyaki sauce better, it taste salty yet sweet.

Tteokbokki

July 08, 2020

I’m craving for Tteokbokki.

Tteok-bokki (떡볶이; also spelled ddukbokki) or stir-fried rice cakes is a popular Korean food made from small-sized garae-tteok (long, white, cylinder-shaped rice cakes) called tteokmyeon (떡면; “rice cake noodles”) or commonly tteok-bokki-tteok (떡볶이 떡; “tteok-bokki rice cakes”). Eomuk (fish cakes), boiled eggs, and scallions are some common ingredients paired with tteok-bokki in dishes. It can be seasoned with either spicy gochujang (chili paste) or non-spicy ganjang (soy sauce)-based sauce; the former being the most typical form, while the latter is less common and sometimes called gungjung-tteok-bokki (royal court tteok-bokki).

Today, variations also include curry-tteok-bokkicream sauce-tteok-bokkijajang-tteok-bokkiseafood-tteok-bokkigalbi-tteok-bokki and so on. Tteok-bokki is commonly purchased and eaten at bunsikjip (snack bars) as well as pojangmacha (street stalls). There are also dedicated restaurants for tteok-bokki, where it is referred to as jeugseog tteok-bokki (impromptu tteok-bokki). It is also a popular home dish, as the rice cakes (garae-tteok) can be purchased in pre-packaged, semi-dehydrated form.

I bought gochujang but already expired. And I found this recipe without gochujang in internet (I forgot the website url). But I have modificated this recipe, because I didn’t like spicy.

Recipe:

  • Tteokbokki (I bought it from supermarket, the package is using vacuum and freeze one)
  • 4 pcs minced garlic
  • 2 pcs shallot / onion
  • 6 pcs Bird’s Eye Chilli (puree)
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 6 tablespoon Tomato Sauce
  • 2 tablespoon Mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Oyster Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Salty Soy Sauce
  • 2 tablespoon Sugar
  • Chile Powder
  • Leek
  • Water
  • You can add another ingredients such as boiled egg, sausage, cheese, eomuk, etc.

How to Cook?

Fry the garlic, onion, and bird’s eye chili in the butter, until smelling. Then pour the tomato sauce, mayonnaise, soy sauce, oyster sauce into it, give a little water (if you like the sauce to be thick, don’t give too much water). Pour the sugar, mixed it well. Taste it, if you think it’s not spicy enough, you can add the chili powder. If you like sweet, you can add the sugar.

Then when you think the taste is good and water height or volume is enough for your taste, put the tteokboki inside, and boiled it. Don’t boiled it too long because the tteokbokki will too soft and it’s sticky.

Serve in a plate and put some boiled egg and the cheese (look for melted one, so when the cheese put inside the sauce, it will melted and taste wonderful).

Canned Pork Luncheon Meat, Ma Ling

This is one of my favourite canned food, Canned pork luncheon meat. The brand name is Ma Ling. I always fried it with eggs or you can make Ma Ling Soup.

When I don’t know what to eat, this canned food is one of most simple food for lunch or dinner.

Just mixed egg, and put the canned meat inside the mixed egg, and deep fried it. I like a little cripy one so I will fry it until yellow gold color. Eat it with rice, so delicious.

Beef Teriyaki vs Beef Garlic (1)

Because Pandemic Corona, we must spend most of our time at home. And for someone that rarely cook, will try looking for some recipe to cook.

When I went to Supermarker, I always see this Beef Slice. And this time, I decided to buy it.

The beef meat name is Short Plate Beef.

Under the rib cut, the short plate has the lower short ribs, also called agujas cortas. Short Plate Beef is a forequarter cut from the belly of the cow, just below the rib cut. It is typically a cheap, tough, and fatty meat. In U.K. butchery, this cut is considered part of the brisket.

I bought some Teriyaki Sauce. I want to try to marinated the beef with two kind of taste: Teriyaki and Salty.

  1. First Sauce: mix Teriyaki Sauce, minced garlic, a little salt and sugar.
  2. Second Sauce: mix Salty Soy Sauce, minced garlic, and a litte sugar.

Marinated The beef with each sauce for about 20 minutes. And grilled it.

And the result:

So yummy.. But I think next time I have to cook it longer so it will more crispy.

Fluffy Puff Pancake (2)

This is my 2nd trial making this cute and yummy Fluffy Puff Pancake. And still the shape is not too good but it’s getting delicious and better.

What you need?

  • 1 pcs egg (separate the white and yellow)
  • 30gr flour
  • A little Vanilli Paste
  • 15gr Milk
  • 0.5gr Salt
  • 30gr Sugar

How to make?

Whisk yellow egg, flour, vanilli paste, milk and salt together until it mix well.

Mixer the white egg for about 3 minutes with high speed, and every 30 minutes put the 1/3 sugar inside while the mixer on.

Mix the Batter together, mix well.

Prepare the frying pan, put a little butter, spread well. Use small fire. Then use bowl spoon / ice cream scoop spoon, take the batter and put it on the frying pan. Do it for about 2-3 times (depend on your batter).

My batter still not stiff enough (still a little moist) so when I put the batter, it spread on the frying pan. So I give about 4 spoon batter for one pancake. Don’t put it together, but see if the first one already 1/3 cooked.

Do it for the rest batter.

For topping, you can add anything. This time I’m using Silverqueen, chocolate bar (melt it on the stove and give a little water).

Tadaa.. This is my breakfast today.

If you succeed to make it thick (about 2-3cm height) then you succeed make Fluffy Puff Pancake.

Noodle Pizza

Today is wednesday. Usually, at Wednesday I will eat Indomie for breakfast (but not every week, by mood only). And today, I’m crafting some Noodle Pizza.

This noodle pizza is made from Fried Indomie + eggs.

Indomie, an Indonesian brand of instant noodle. And when I’m in university, my friend taught me how to make this food.

It’s very easy.

What you need?

  • Indomie Noodle Instant, fried one
  • 2pcs of egg

How to make?

First, you cook the instant noodle until it’s soft enough. Then while cooking the noodle, crack the 2 eggs insids a bowl and mix it with Indomie Noodle Instant spice (powder, sweet soy sauce and the oil).

After the noodle is soft enough, drain well and put the noodle inside mixed egg. Mixed it together. Mix well.

Prepare the frying pan with oil. My suggestion, put a little too much oil. After the oil is hot enough, then put the noodle + egg into frying pan, and spread it so it looks like pizza (big round). And cook it just like you cook fried egg.

Fry it well according to your taste. I like it more crispy and a little dark in the outside. After done, put it on the plate and enjoy.

Fried Noodle Indomie

Because of the Pandemic Covid-19, we have to physical distancing, and less go out. So, I try to practise my video editor, then next time I can make vlog when travelling.

The most simple to cook something in this world is, making Instant Noodle.

Indomie is one of famous instant noodle brand in Indonesia and many people like this. They have the original taste of Indonesia. I like the taste of Fried Noodle Indomie, sometimes when I missed it, I will cooking instant noodle.

You just need to boil the noodle, until it’s soft, drain well. Put the seasoning on the plate, then mix it together with the noodle.

I like to add half-boiled egg.

Enjoy and Happy eating.. 😀
