My first visit to Japan this year has inspired me deeply to try my hands at Japanese food.  It’s fairly simple if you have the right Japanese sauces. I am sharing all my ‘experiments’ that have passed my home critics. Hope this gives you ideas and enjoyment in your home cooking journey! I highly recommend watching NetFlix – Tokyo Midnight Diner, hope you will be inspired to cook too!

This one pot meal is simple and delicious, can be eaten any time of the day. I don’t mind making extra and just snacking on the meat during the day. As for the Japanese omelette in the picture, well that’s for another day.

1 clove/ Shallot

1 whole /Onion OR White Shimeiji Mushroom

500g/Pork Collar OR Beef (use the Shabu Shabu meat – thinly slices for hotpots)
