Start Here: Easy Japanese

If you're new to Japanese cooking, these are a few quick and easy recipes for Beginner Japanese Cooks.

If you see any ingredients you've never heard of, this is where to look for the explanation (and see what else that item is used for!)

Okonomiyaki Super-easy everyday dish, with endless Variations.

Nikujaga Meat, potatoes, onions and some carrot.  You're done.  A legendary Japanese home cooked meal.

Kimchee Nabe I put this one here because it's impossible to get wrong!


Basic Udon Soup Udon noodles with Australian vegetables and chicken?!  The soup, however, is authentic Japanese!

Gyudon Beef simmered in soy sauce, ginger and sake, served on steamed rice.
Tsukimi Gyudon That's with the optional Egg on top.


Yakiniku Various meats and vegetables barbecued at the table, served with dipping sauces and steamed rice. (Japanese Barbecue at the table)  If your dipping-sauce is pre-made from the store, then this is about the easiest meal ever.
Hiyayakko No cooking required. Soft tofu with soy sauce.  Try it a couple of times and eventually you'll crave it.

3 min Corn Potage Recipe  Creamy Corn Soup.  Baby boy loves it.  So does my husband.
