DJ’s Kitchen: Homemade Sakura!
Sakura... AT HOME! No long wait times, no high prices, no awful hibachi show... Okay that last one doesn't count. That's the BEST PART of Sakura! THE SHOWMANSHIP! I LOVE IT!
Here's how I made myself the BEST Japanese Hibachi in the privacy of my home, for a fraction of the cost!
INGREDIENTS YOU'LL NEED:
Steak, Chicken, or Shrimp. (I went with Steak.)
Cook your rice.
Cut the fat off the steak, then cube the remaining meat
In a frying pan, I melted butter and scrambled two eggs before adding in the cooked rice.
In a big pot, I melted butter and threw in the steak. I like the big pot so grease doesn't splash everywhere.
Simultaneously, I'm frying the rice and steak in two different pans.
I add more butter to the rice and about a teaspoon of chopped garlic.
Also, about another teaspoon of sesame oil to the rice.
Splash in some soy sauce to the rice.
Splash in some soy sauce and teriyaki sauce to the steak.
I also throw in some onions to the steak for some flavor!
Season that to your liking and...
YOU'RE READY TO PARTY BABY! ENJOY!
Southern Utah's BEST Homemade Ramen Recipe!
I grew up on Top Ramen, but now that I'm older I've discovered ACTUAL RAMEN, and it's probably my favorite! This weekend I decided to try my own HOMEMADE Ramen, and it's SERIOUSLY INCREDIBLE! The best part: It's REALLY inexpensive too!
1. Two packages of Chicken Ramen Express by Chef Woo.
Vegetarian, No Dairy, and no MSG, made in the USA, baby! They cook in 3 minutes once the water is boiling!
2. 3 Cups Great Value Chicken Broth (1 cup water)
This chicken broth was like $1.90 and obviously WAY BETTER than just water for your ramen! The Ramen calls for 2 cups of water per package. I will do at least 1 1/12 cup chicken broth and 1/2 cup water for more flavor!
3. Half Can Great Value Sweet Corn
Adding corn to ramen seems so simple.. But it makes a HUGE difference! Throw it in when the noodles are soft and boiling.
4. A few splashes of Soy Sauce
This helps with the flavor just a little bit. I probably do 4 or 5 splashes into the boiling ramen!
5. Great Value Parmesan Cheese
Throw this on top after your ramen, and ramen seasoning is in your bowl! I love it. A lot of people don't do parmesan on their ramen, but it's SO GOOD!
5. French Fried Onions
I would've never thought these could be SO GOOD in ramen, but they are! They get soft, and add that onion flavor. SO SO SO GOOD!
