Super Easy Rice Cooker Recipe: Roast Beef

Hello people. It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. Christmas is right on the corner. Do you have ideas already what food to prepare? I have a suggestion for your Christmas dinner, that is, ‘roast’ beef’! I used a rice cooker to cook it instead of an oven. So, you could try it easily.

Super Easy Rice Cooker Recipes: Roast Beef

Ingredients

Roast beef

500 grams of beef (eye of round roast)
some salt & pepper

 

Sauce

1 1/2 tsp of butter
1/2 tbsp of soy sauce
1 tsp of chiken soup powder
4 tbsp of water

 

Directions

Note:
You need a thermometer to check temperature.

 

1. Sprinkle salt and pepper over the beef, scrub, and tenderize by fork.
2. Grill beef (only the surface) for a few minutes on both sides.
3. Get the meat out, cover with saran wrap, and put into a ziplock (let all air out).
4. Pour plenty of hot water (about 59 °C/138.2 °F) in the rice cooker, and press KEEP WARM button.
5. Place the meat (packed in ziplock) in the rice cooker, close the cover and leave it for 60 minutes.

Note:
Make sure the temparature stays above 54 °C/129.2 °F  (the rice cooker will do but just in case, check every 10-15 minutes for a few times).

 

Preparing the Sauce

Transfer the juice of the meat (from the ziplock) into the pan. Add all the sauce ingredients  and heat up for a bit. And, it’s done.

Pour it over the sliced roast beef. Tada!

Easy Japanese Recipe: Sushi Rice

Hola amigos! Mr. Wada is back on duty aqui!

Do you know what Sushi is? Allow me asking you such a silly question. I suppose Sushi has been known well enough today. But many people wouldn’t like it because it’s raw fish, however. Neta (sushi topping) can be anything like eggs, or even avocado.

You know what, you could try at home. I used to make avocado rolls myself, so I will show you how I make sushi rice this time.

Ingredients

Two cups of cooked rice

Sushi Vinegar
– 3 tbsps of vinegar
– 1 tbsp of sugar
– 1/3 tsp of salt

Make Sushi Rice

Well, basically just mix all the ingredients of Sushi vinegar and pour into hot rice.

Blend well and let it cool down for a while.

I got marinated mackerel called Shime-Saba at the supermarket. Slice it and place on the sushi rice. Shiso leaves would give it great flavor also! (from our garden)

Looks good, doesn’t it? Vinegar gives great appetite when I’m down in summer.

Lastly

Even if you are a vegan, you could try it with veggies like green onions etc. You know, raw fish is not the only thing for sushi! Please try it and lemme know how it goes.

See you around!
