6 Best Suvie Japanese Recipes

Enjoy a trip to Japan without the expensive plane ticket by making any one of the following delicious recipes. This list contains our six favorite Japanese recipes whether you’re looking for teriyaki chicken, warm udon noodles, or creamy potato salad. 

1) Japanese Potato Salad 

Japanese potato salad is a study in texture. Unlike American potato salads that are usually composed of large pieces of potato, Japanese potato salad recipes call for mashing half the potatoes while leaving the other half chunky. This blend of potatoes provides a creamy potato base interspersed with toothsome pieces of potato. 

2) Japanese Pork and Vegetable Curry

Japanese curries have some similar ingredients to the traditional Indian dishes; seasonings, vegetables, protein, and rice, with a slightly sweeter, darker sauce base. The sauce is made, almost in the style of Creole gumbo; the curry starts with a dark brown roux that is then thinned with broth and apple sauce. This recipe slowly simmers tender pork pieces with carrots, potatoes, eggplant, and bell peppers.

3) Tamagoyaki

Tamagoyaki is a type of salty-sweet Japanese omelet typically made in a rectangular pan. Suvie’s pans are the ideal shape for replicating traditional tamagoyaki and sous viding the eggs ensures they are tender and perfectly cooked. These delicious little rolls can be eaten on their own or served on top of sushi rice.

4) Kitsune Udon

Kitsune udon is a warm and comforting dish consisting of tender udon noodles, flavorful broth, and sweet and savory fried tofu. There are many theories surrounding the name of this dish, as kitsune means fox in Japanese. Some Japanese folktales describe fried tofu as the fox’s favorite dish. Other theories posit that the term fox refers to the color the tofu should be fried to. Regardless of the origin of the dish’s name, this meal is guaranteed to warm you on the coldest of evenings.

5) Mizutaki

Mizutaki is a type of nabe, or hot pot dish, from the Kyushu region located at the southern tip of Japan. Typically this dish is cooked on a portable stove at a dining table so that diners can choose their ingredients. Mizutaki consists of chicken and vegetables in a kombu dashi served with ponzu for dipping. Garnish with togarashi for some welcome heat.

6) Teriyaki Chicken Thighs

Traditionally, teriyaki refers to the Japanese cooking method of grilling or broiling meat glazed with soy sauce, sugar and mirin. In Japan, fish is the main protein used in teriyaki. In America, the word “teriyaki” has become synonymous with teriyaki sauce, referring to the flavor profile of the dish as opposed to the cooking method. In this recipe, we’ve added some non-traditional ingredients such as garlic, ginger, and black pepper to give an extra zing to the teriyaki. This Americanized version of Japanese cuisine is easy to throw together and an all-around crowd-pleaser.
