Happy Valentine’s Day (or Singles Awareness Day)! Whether or not you celebrated this weekend with your S.O, on an awkward date, or watching Deadpool at the cinema, there’s always a good excuse for a three-course Japanese meal. As I did last year (because I’m predictable) I cooked for my boyfriend – and decided to go Japanese style this year!
I may not be the greatest of cooks but I certainly enjoy it, so here’s a three course easy-to-make Japanese home-cooked dinner for all occasions!
Starter: Sesame Beef Wraps (recipe from BBCgoodfood)
I think I overcooked the beef a little bit, so if I make these again the important thing to remember is to cut the beef into very thin strips and only let them fry for a few minutes.
Main course: Curry udon (recipe from Japan Centre)
Easy-to-make, very filling and delicious! My version looked a bit messy but it was delicious, and all the ingredients are of course available from the Japan Centre website.
Dessert: Dark chocolate mochi (available for Tsuki Mochi)
I originally made matcha cheesecake, but it didn’t set in the fridge! Fortunately I had some Tsuki Mochi chilling in the fridge, waiting for a blogging opportunity, so I cracked them out. These were perfect for rounding off a large meal and tasted divine. They would also make brilliant hors d’ouevres at a dinner party!
