recette du jour LEKUE: steamed veggies & pork stack
Sorry, it's been a while.
Mighty and I have finally settled in after a couple of mishaps and misunderstandings. I'm very grateful for him being here to make my day go by faster and not to mention the fact that he's my little chef. I'm so ecstatic that we will be having another addition to our home; Juvy will be visiting for Golden Week and we've got some fun things planned. :D
I finally found time to try out my Lekue steamcase I purchased last year. It was originally for my mother but she had already asked me to bring more stuff from Japan than I had hoped and took up 70% of my suitcase. I promised to get her one next time. I've already experimented with a couple of recipes and found that it saves me a lot of time, it's healthy because I rarely use any oils, and it's so easy to clean. I just wish I had gotten the black steam case. It's pretty sexy.
This is by far the most easiest main course recipe I have ever made. I can't even call this cooking.
LEKUE: steamed veggies & pork stack
- 3 thin pork strips (sliced in half)
- 1/8 cabbage head (cut in bite size pieces)
- 1 eggplant (cut in thin slices)
- 1/4 onion (julienned)
- 1/4 carrot (cut thinly)
- 1/4 package of bean sprouts (about two handfuls)
- pinch of salt
- ponzu or goma shabu shabu sauce (For dipping ingredients in after. I like to use gomashabu.)
1. Take half of each ingredient and sheet it in layers inside the Lekue case in the following order (bottom to top):
1. Salt to taste. Close the lids and microwave at 500w for 5 mins.
2. Once the 5 mins are up, let it steam for 3 mins.
3. All done! Dip it with your favorite sauce and eat up!
I'm going to enjoy the last few days of sakura this weekend plus a Sid concert. :D
Have a great weekend guys :3
