Easy Beef Sukiyaki Recipe

I love Japanese food and one of my fave meals is Sukiyaki. My mom spent a lot of time making that dish when we were little so I thought it was difficult to make. She uses authentic ingredients which could only be seen in specialty sections in groceries or Japanese stores. With my desire to eat Beef Sukiyaki, I have made some research and used ingredients that can be found in regular groceries. Here is my easy and no sweat Beef Sukiyaki recipe. 


1/2 kilo Sukiyaki Beef Cut 
Chinese Cabbage "bok choy"(Fil: pechay) - sliced around 1-inch long
2 Medium-sized Carrots - cut in thin slices
Onion Leeks - cut around 1-inch long
Tofu (or tokwa) - diced
1 small pack Vermicelli Noodles (Fil: sotanghon) - soaked in water
2 cups of water


2 tablespoons of grated ginger
1 cup soy sauce
3 tablespoons of sugar
dash of pepper

1. After preparing all the ingredients, get a huge wok if you don't have a hot pot and boil 2 cups of water for around 2 minutes and then pour the sauce. 
2. After 5 minutes of boiling, put the flame into medium then add the beef on the sauce. Make sure to spread the beef out evenly to be cooked properly. 
3. Once the color of the beef changes from red to brown, add the onions, onion leeks, carrots and Chinese cabbage.
 4. Let it simmer for around 2 minutes, then add the tofu. Those who are using tokwa instead of tofu can add the tokwa first before adding the vegetables so that they would be cooked well.
5. Check if all the vegetables are cooked. Then add the Vermicelli Noodles (sotanghon).
6. Mix the noodles a little with the other ingredients so that it would be cooked evenly, but make sure to remain the ingredients parted so that you can easily choose what to eat (also for presentation purposes..LOL). Remember to taste your dish so that you can adjust the flavor. After turning off the heat, you can add a raw egg on the hot pot and let it cooked by the sauce. Some mix it up with the other ingredients, but others let it cook like a sunny-side up.
7. You can eat the Beef Sukiyaki as it is because there is noodles, protein and veggies in it. Some prefer topping it on a bowl of rice which I do sometimes  (I guess, that's the Pinoy way).
The total cooking time of Beef Sukiyaki is only around 30 minutes. The preparation actually took quite some time like cutting the veggies, but if you are a pro at that then you can probably finish that in around 5 minutes. I did not use cooking oil in this recipe because I want it to be more healthy. So the health conscious who are in search for fast and easy recipes would surely be delighted with my Beef Sukiyaki cooking.

MyHealth Clinic Takes Care of My Health

Getting sick is a real pain in the *** but to wait for a long queue in discomfort and end up with a list of expensive medicines to  buy would definitely make anyone feel more sick! I was glad I have a health card from work so that lessens my worry about the check up and laboratory expenses. I usually go to Medical City Clinic in Trinoma and Waltermart for the check-up but my experience there was not really that good especially in Waltermart, Munoz. The nurses there and attendants seem so laid back (which is a better term for being lazy) and busy chatting with each other. I waited for a long time (around 30 min.) just to have my Maxicare approved and after that I went to the nurse's station to give my papers but the girl was busy on her phone so the guy beside her placed my paper on her table and told me to wait for my name to be called. So I waited for my name to be called and it was almost an hour. I was really wondering why it would take that long just to have my blood extracted…

Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad

Ampalaya (Eng: bitter melon)is hated by many because of its bitter taste. It is rare to find a kid eating ampalaya and even only a few adults would dare ate this vegetable. I think the first time I ate ampalaya was in grade school when we were asked by our teacher to eat it since it signifies the bitter herb mentioned in the Bible. Now that I am all grown up and enjoy eating all kinds of food, I happen to love ampalaya. My former colleague brought ampalaya salad  at work and it was good! You won't taste its bitternes so I asked her how she did it. I made it at home and mom liked it, but my sister did not because she said it was still bitter. FAIL! 
As years go by, I think I have finally perfected making the not-so-bitter Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad. I am going to share this to those who love this green veggie and the first-timers who dare to taste it.
