Chicken and Cabbage Fried Rice / Pržena riža sa piletinom i kupusom

Yup, here’s another fried rice recipe for you all. If you’ve been around this blog long enough, you know that those are my absolute favorite type of dishes, so no further introductions is necessary.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 servings / 0.63 EUR per serving / 2.51 EUR for all)

3 tbsp sunflower seed oil, divided (0.04 EUR)

1 cup minced chicken (1.00 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

Good pinch of freshly ground black pepper (0.02 EUR)

3 cups shredded cabbage (0.30 EUR)

1 onion (0.10 EUR)

3 garlic cloves (0.10 EUR)

2 eggs (0.40 EUR)

3 cups precooked cold rice (0.20 EUR)

1 tsp Gochujang – Korean chili paste (0.07 EUR)

2 tbsp ketchup (0.07 EUR)

2 tbsp soy sauce (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp toasted sesame oil (0.07 EUR)

IMGP7490

IMGP7484

IMGP7487

METHOD:

Peel and thinly slice the onion and mince garlic. Whisk the eggs in a small bowl and set aside. Place a deep pan or a wok on high heat and allow to thoroughly warm up. Add two tablespoon of sunflower seed oil and minced chicken to the wok. Season generously with salt and pepper, then cook for about 5 minutes until the chicken is thoroughly cooked through and starts to crisp slightly at the edges. As the chicken cooks, break it down with your spatula into smaller pieces.

Once the chicken is done add in cabbage, onion and garlic. Give a good stir, then cover with a lid and cook covered for about 2-3 minutes. This will help to steam and wilt down the cabbage more quickly. Once the cabbage cooks down, uncover and cook until all of the excess water evaporates. Then push everything to one side of your pan and add the remaining sunflower seed oil to the empty pan bottom. Pour the whisked eggs out on oil and cook for a minute or two, while gently folding them over with a spatula.

Once the eggs are cooked through, stir in rice, Gochujang, ketchup, soy sauce and sesame oil. Cook the rice undisturbed for a few minutes, until the bottom gets slightly crispy. Stir everything thoroughly one final time and serve immediately.

Da, evo vam još jedan recept za prženu rižu. Ako ste dovoljno puta navratili na ovaj blog, znate da mi je to jedno od omiljenih vrsta jela. Nikakvi daljnji uvodi ovdje nisu potrebni, pa hajdemo odmah na recept.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 4,68 kn po porciji / 18,71 kn za sve)

3 žlice suncokretovog ulja, podijeljene (0,30 kn)

1 šalica mljevene piletine (7,50 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,15 kn)

3 šalice ribanog kupusa (2,25 kn)

1 luk (0,75 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka (0,75 kn)

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

3 šalice kuhane hladne riže (1,50 kn)

1 žličica Gochujanga – korejske čili paste (0,50 kn)

2 žlice kečapa (0,50 kn)

2 žlice soja sosa (1,00 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (0,50 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Ogulite i tanko narežite luk te sitno nasjeckajte češnjak. Jaja razmutite u maloj zdjelici i stavite na stranu. Duboku tavu ili wok stavite na jaku vatru da se dobro zagriju. Dodajte dvije žlice ulja i piletinu, dobro začinite solju i paprom te kuhajte oko 5 minuta da se meso lagano zahrska. Dok se piletina kuha, špatulom ju razdrobite na manje komade.

Kada je piletina gotova ubacite kupus, luk i češnjak. Dobro promiješajte pa wok poklopite i tako kuhajte 2-3 minute. Na taj način će se uz pomoć pare kupus brže skuhati i povenuti. Kada je kupus povenuo, maknite poklopac i nastavite kuhati otklopljeno dok sva tekućina ne ispari iz woka. Sada sve pogurajte na jednu stranu woka kako bi vam dno na jednom dijelu ostalo prazno. Na prazni dio dodajte preostalo ulje i na njega iskrenite razmućena jaja. Kuhajte ih koju minutu dok ne budu gotova, s time da ih za vrijeme kuhanja nježno presavijajte špatulom.

Kada su jaja gotova umiješajte rižu, Gochujang, kečap, soja sos i sezamovo ulje. Idućih nekoliko minuta sve kuhajte bez miješanja kako bi se dno lagano zahrskalo. Na kraju sve dobro promiješajte i odmah poslužite.

Bacon and Zucchini Fried Rice / Pržena riža sa slaninom i tikvicama

Yes, I know; another fried rice recipe! But since that’s such an awesome way for using up random stuff in your fridge, I don’t plan to stop anytime soon. Sorry – not sorry. I happened to have a small, lonely piece of bacon in my fridge and decided to use it up in this recipe too. And since everything with bacon tastes amazing, this dish turned out quite delicious.

Da, da, sve znam; još jedan recept za prženu rižu! Ali pošto je to tako savršen način za iskoristiti sve ostatke koji su vam se nakupili u frižideru, uopće ne planiram s time prestati. Žao mi je, ali nije mi žao. Uz sve ostale sastojke, imala sam u frižideru i tužni, usamljeni komadić špeka koji sam također odlučila ubaciti u recept. A pošto sve sa špekom ima savršen okus, ovo je jelo također ispalo odlično.

Spicy Veggie Noodle Stir-Fry / Ljuti rezanci s povrćem iz woka

Our local store had a sale of Asian food ingredients, so I decided to stock up and make a quick stir-fry. Initially I considered making something with rice, but since I scored some super cheap noodles, it was really a no-brainer.

IMGP6235

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 servings / 0.98 EUR per serving / 3.92 EUR for all)

For stir-fry:

3 squares of ramen-type noodles (0.50 EUR)

5 tbsp sunflower seed oil, divided (0.07 EUR)

2 cups frozen peas (0.53 EUR)

2 carrots (0.13 EUR)

2 sweet red horn peppers (0.27 EUR)

1 chili pepper (0.20 EUR)

4 garlic cloves (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp red pepper flakes (0.07 EUR)

5-6 shiitake mushrooms (0.80 EUR)

1 onion (0.07 EUR)

2 eggs (0.40 EUR)

For the sauce:

¼ cup soy sauce (0.53 EUR)

2 tbsp warm water (–)

1 tbsp fish sauce (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp toasted sesame oil (0.07 EUR)

1 tsp sugar (0.01 EUR)

½ tsp corn starch (0.01 EUR)

IMGP6238

METHOD:

You want to have everything prepared for when the cooking starts, as it’s going to go really fast. Cook the noodles to al dente according to their cooking instructions on the package. Wash noodles under cold running water to stop the cooking, drain and set aside. Wash, peel and chop all the vegetables and mushrooms. Whisk the eggs in a small bowl and set aside. Whisk the sauce ingredients in a separate bowl until sugar and corn starch are completely dissolved and sauce is emulsified.

Place wok on high heat and let it sit for a few minutes until it starts smoking. Add 2 tablespoons of oil and frozen peas, stir-frying for two to three minutes so the peas can thaw. Then add in carrots and horn peppers, stir-frying for a minute or two in between. Add another tablespoon of oil and throw in chopped chili, garlic and red pepper flakes to stir-fry for only half a minute, so that their flavors can develop. Just a small note here on the chili amount: my chili pepper and red pepper flakes were pretty mild and hence these amounts in this recipe. Be sure to taste everything though, before adding to your dish, unless you wanna burn a hole through your stomach. 😀

Proceed to add mushrooms and onion to the wok, while stir-frying for a minute or so in between. Then add in the noodles, stir everything well and push to one side of the wok to make room for cooking the eggs. Add remaining two tablespoons of oil to empty part of the wok bottom and pour in whisked eggs into the oil. Gently fold the eggs over with a spatula until cooked through, then pour sauce over noodles and veggies, give one final stir so the eggs break through and everything is coated in sauce. Turn off the heat and serve immediately.

U Kauflandu je nedavno bila velika rasprodaja sastojaka za azijsku kuhinju, pa sam odlučila obnoviti svoje kućne zalihe. Prvotno sam planirala napraviti nešto sa rižom, ali sam naletila i na turbo jeftine rezance, tako da tu uopće više nije bilo dileme.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 7,33 kn po porciji / 29,33 kn za sve)

Za wok:

3 kocke azijske tjestenine tipa ramen (3,75 kn)

5 žlica suncokretovog ulja, podijeljenih (0,50 kn)

2 šalice smrznutog graška (4,00 kn)

2 mrkve (1,00 kn)

2 crvene paprike roge (2,00 kn)

1 čili papričica (1,50 kn)

4 češnja češnjaka (1,00 kn)

1 žličica sušenog čilija u pahuljicama (0,50 kn)

5-6 gljiva shii-taka (6,00 kn)

1 luk (0,50 kn)

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

Za umak:

¼ šalice soja sosa (4,00 kn)

2 žlice tople vode (–)

1 žlica ribljeg umaka (1,00 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (0,50 kn)

1 žličica šećera (0,02 kn)

½ žličice kukuruznog škroba (0,06 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Želite da vam svi sastojci budu spremni kada krenete sa kuhanjem, jer će sve ići jako brzo. Skuhajte tjesteninu al dente prema uputama na pakiranju. Operite rezance pod mlazom hladne vode kako bi se prestali kuhati, ocijedite i stavite na stranu. Operite, ogulite i nasjeckajte svo povrće i gljive. Razmutite jaja u maloj zdjelici i stavite na stranu. U drugoj zdjelici razmutite sve sastojke za umak dok ne dobijete emulziju, a šećer i škrob su se skroz rastopili.

Stavite wok na jaku vatru i pustite ga par minuta da se dobro ugrije sve dok se ne počne dimiti. Dodajte u wok 2 žlice ulja i smrznuti grašak, pa kuhajte uz povremeno miješanje 2-3 minute dok se grašak ne odmrzne. Onda ubacite mrkve, pa nakon minutu-dvije i crvenu papriku, a sve uz povremeno miješanje. Dodajte još žlicu ulja u wok, pa na ulje bacite narezani čili, češnjak i sušeni čili pa pržite samo oko pola minute da se okusi razviju. Samo mala napomena ovdje što se tiče količine čilija: moje papričice i sušeni čili su bili dosta blagi, pa sam zato upotrijebila ovoliku količinu. Svakako sve probajte prije nego što ubacite u wok, osim ako si ne želite spaliti rupu u želucu. 😀

Nastavite kuhati tako da dodate gljive, pa nakon minutu-dvije luk, uz povremeno miješanje. Na kraju dodajte rezance, dobro izmiješajte i pomaknite sve na jednu stranu woka kako bi napravili mjesta za ispeći jaja. Dodajte preostale dve žlice ulja na prazan dio wok pa u to istresite razmućena jaja. Nježno špatulom presavijajte jaja dok se ne skuhaju i prelijte umak preko tjestenine i povrća. Dobro sve promiješajte za kraj, kako bi se jaja razbila na manje komadiće i sve obložilo umakom. Maknite s vatre i odma poslužite.

Beefy Hot and Sour Soup / Juneća kiselo-ljuta juha

A few days ago I’ve made an enormous pot of super tasty beef broth. I’ve decided to spice things up a little, so I turned a portion of it into a delicious hot and sour soup. Any broth would work here, though, so feel free to use whatever you currently have on hand. Also, any veggie combination will also do well, so adapt the things to your liking.

IMGP6227

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 6 servings)

3 tbsp sunflower seed oil

3 large carrots

2 sweet red horn peppers

2 chili peppers

4 garlic cloves

Handful of shiitake mushrooms

Block of smoked tofu

4 spring onions

8 cups beef broth

¼ cup soy sauce

Pinch of red pepper flakes

1 tsp toasted sesame oil

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

¼ cup corn starch

2 eggs

IMGP6230

METHOD:

Wash, peel and finely slice all the vegetables, mushrooms and tofu. Set aside and reserve a bit of peppers, chili and green parts of onions for garnishing. Add the oil to a large heavy pot and then add in the chopped vegetables one by one in this order: carrots, horn peppers, chili peppers, garlic, mushrooms, tofu and spring onions. Briefly stir-fry before adding a new veggie, so the flavors have time to develop. Pour broth over everything, then add in soy sauce, red pepper flakes, sesame oil and vinegar. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 5-10 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning.

Dissolve corn starch in a few tablespoons of water, then slowly pour the mixture into the simmering soup, while stirring the soup constantly. The soup will quickly begin to thicken, so turn off the heat when desired consistency is reached. Whisk the eggs in a small bowl and slowly pour them into the soup. They’ll cook immediately since the soup is piping hot. Stir again to break the eggs. Serve hot, sprinkled with reserved peppers, chili and green onion parts.

Neki dan sam napravila enormni lonac finog goveđeg temeljca. Odlučila sam stvari učiniti malo interesantnijima, pa sam dio upotrijebila za ukusnu kiselo-ljutu juhu. Bilo koji drugi temeljac bi ovdje funkcionirao, pa slobodno upotrijebite ono što vam je pri ruci. Također, i kombinaciju povrća isto možete modificirati prema vlastitom ukusu.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 6 porcija)

3 žlice suncokretovog ulja

3 velike mrkve

2 slatke crvene roga paprike

2 čili papričice

4 češnja češnjaka

Pregršt gljiva shii taka

Komad dimljenog tofua

4 mlada luka

8 šalica goveđeg temeljca

¼ šalice soja sosa

Prstohvat sušenog čilija u pahuljicama

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja

2 žlice jabučnog octa

¼ šalice kukuruznog škroba

2 jaja

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i fino nasjeckajte svo povrće, gljive i tofu. Izdvojite za kasnije malo narezanih paprika, čilija i zelenja od mladog luka. Dodajte ulje u veliki lonac, pa jedno po jedno ubacujte povrće ovim redoslijedom: mrkve, paprike, čili, češnjak, gljive, tofu i mladi luk. Kratko miješajte i pržite svako povrće prije nego ubacite novo, a sve kako bi se okusi bolje razvili. Prelijte preko svega temeljac i dodajte soja sos, sušeni čili, sezamovo ulje i ocat. Pustite neka zavrije i krčkajte 5-10 minuta. Kušajte i prilagodite začine.

Otopite kukuruzni škrob u par žlica vode i polako ulijevajte u juhu koja se krčka, s time da juhu bez prestanka miješate. Juha će se brzo početi zgušnjavakti, pa ugasite vatru kada dostigne željenu gustoću. Razmutite jaja u maloj zdjelici pa ih polako ulijevajte u vruću juhu. Ona će se odmah skuhati. Još jednom promiješajte da razbijete jaja na manje komadiće. Poslužite vruće, posipano sa paprikom, čilijem i zelenjem od luka.

Cabbage and Mushroom Stir-Fry / Kineski kupus i gljive iz woka

While browsing the store the other day I saw that Napa cabbage is on sale. I still had no idea what to cook, but soon a stir-fry recipe started crystallizing in my mind. As any other stir-fry, this one is also very adaptable to your likes and what you have on hand. You can also make it vegan or vegetarian, but be sure to then skip the Worcestershire sauce and eggs.

imgp6017

imgp6016

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 4 servings / 0.69 EUR per serving / 2.77 EUR for all)

For the sauce:

2 tbsp soy sauce (0.13 EUR)

1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce (0.13 EUR)

2 tbsp white wine (0.13 EUR)

1 tsp toasted sesame oil (0.07 EUR)

2 tbsp warm water (–)

1 tbsp corn starch (0.03 EUR)

1 large onion (0.10 EUR)

2 eggs (0.40 EUR)

imgp6013

METHOD:

Start off by making the sauce. In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, wine, sesame oil, water, corn starch and red pepper flakes. Set aside. Wash, peel and finely slice mushrooms and all the vegetables so you have everything ready, as the cooking will go quickly. Whisk the eggs in a separate small bowl.

imgp6022

Place wok on high heat for a few minutes, so it gets thoroughly warmed. First, stir-fry mushrooms on a tablespoon of oil. Add another tablespoon of oil, then gradually add in one at a time sliced cabbage, carrots, garlic and onion, allowing a minute or two of cooking time in between, before adding a new vegetable. Push all the vegetables to one side of the wok, add remaining two tablespoons of oil to the empty part of wok bottom and pour in whisked eggs over the oil. Allow the eggs to briefly cook through, folding them over and breaking them up in smaller chunks with your spatula. Finally, pour the sauce over everything, briefly cook just so the sauce thickens, stir everything well and serve immediately over cooked rice.

Neki sam dan u dućanu naletila na kineski kupus na sniženju. Još uvijek nisam imala ideju o tome što bi skuhala, ali mi se brzo iskristalizirao recept za klopu iz woka. Kao i sa bilo kojim drugim wokom, ovdje lako možete prilagoditi sastojke u ono što najviše volite i što imate pri ruci. Također, lako možete napraviti i vegansku ili vegetarijansku verziju ako izbacite jaja i Worcestershire umak.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 4 porcije / 5,23 kn po porciji / 20,90 kn za sve)

Za umak:

2 žlice soja sosa (1,00 kn)

1 žlica Worcestershire umaka (1,00 kn)

2 žlice bijelog vina (1,00 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (0,50 kn)

2 žlice tople vode (–)

1 žlica kukuruznog škroba (0,25 kn)

Dobar prstohvat sušenog chilija u pahuljicama (0,25 kn)

Za wok:

4 žlice suncokretovog ulja (0,40 kn)

8-10 velikih šampinjona (7,50 kn)

½ glavice kineskog kupusa (3,00 kn)

2 mrkve (1,50 kn)

3 češnja češnjaka (0,75 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Za početak napravite umak tako da u zdjelici pomiješate soja sos, Worcestershire umak, vino, sezamovo ulje, vodu, kukuruzni škrob i chili. Stavite na stranu. Operite, ogulite i tanko narežite gljive i svo povrće tako da vam sve bude pripremljeno jer će samo kuhanje ići jako brzo. Razmutite jaja u posebnoj zdjelici.

Stavite wok na jaku vatru na par minuta tako da se dobro ugrije. U vrući wok dodajte žlicu ulja i kratko popecite gljive. Dodajte još žlicu ulja, pa jedno po jedno ovim redoslijedom dodajte narezano zelje, mrkvu, češnjak i luk, s time da svako povrće pržite uz miješanje minutu-dvije prije nego dodate sljedeće. Gurnite svo povrće na jednu stranu woka, pa onda u prazni dio woka dodajte preostale dvije žlice ulja. Ulijte razmućena jaja na ulje da se isprže, s time da ih špatulom nježno preklapajte i na kraju natrgajte na manje komadiće. Na kraju, preko svega prelijte umak koji ste pripremili. Pustite da kratko prokuha, samo da se umak zgusne, dobro promiješajte i poslužite odmah sa kuhanom rižom.

Cabbage and Mushroom Stir-Fry / Kineski kupus i gljive iz woka

Hot and Sour Soup / Kiselo-ljuta juha

Can you tell that I’ve been on a Chinese food kick lately? But I wasn’t happy until I’ve made this soup, as I’ve been craving it for weeks. Weeks, I tell you!

Of course, there is nothing better than to have a piping hot, spicy soup on an average summer day. So naturally, I’ve cooked up a batch to feed an army. Or, you know, just me, for a week. Because I’m greedy and this soup is so delicious that I just don’t wanna share.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 8 serving / per serving / for all)

2 tbsp oil

1 large onion

3 large carrots

250 g block of smoked tofu

5 large shiitake mushrooms

8 cups of chicken broth

METHOD:

Wash, peel and finely dice onion, carrots and tofu. Cut the mushrooms into thin strips. Add oil and diced onion to a large pot and saute on high heat until translucent. Add in diced carrot and tofu and cook for a few minutes to soften. Throw in mushrooms, broth, chili, soy sauce and sesame oil and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, then add in vinegar.

Completely dissolve corn starch in warm water and then slowly pour into soup, while stirring constantly. This will prevent large blobs of corn starch from forming. Continue stirring while the soup thickens to desired consistency for another minute or two and then remove from heat. Also note that your soup will additionally thicken as it cools. Whisk the eggs in a small bowl and pour into soup in a slow stream, while you gently stirring it.

Taste and adjust seasoning. Serve sprinkled with a bit of chopped green onions or chives. This soup refrigerates and reheats splendidly.

Jeste li primjetili da se u zadnje vrijeme ubijam u kineskoj klopi? Ali nisam bila skroz sretna dok nisam smućkala i ovu juhu, jer mi se jela već tjednima. Da, da, tjednima!

Naravno, nema bolje stvari od tanjura kipuće i ljute juhe na posječni ljetni dan. Tako da sam, naravno, skuhala lonac dovoljno veliki za nahraniti vojsku. Ili, samo sebe, jedno tjedan dana. Zato jer sam pohlepna i ova juhica je tako fina da ju odbijam dijeliti.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 8 porcija / 6,99 kn po porciji / 55,93 kn za sve)

2 žlice ulja (0,20 kn)

1 veliki luk (0,75 kn)

3 velike mrkve (1,50 kn)

250 g dimljenog tofua (18,00 kn)

5 velikih shii taka (10,00 kn)

8 šalica pilećeg temeljca (14,48 kn)

1 žličica sušenog čilija u pahuljicama (0,50 kn)

¼ šalice soja sosa (2,50 kn)

1 žlica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (1,00 kn)

½ šalice jabučnog octa (0,50 kn)

½ šalice kukuruznog škroba (1,50 kn)

½ šalice tople vode (–)

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

Pregršt nasjeckanog mladog luka ili vlasca za posluživanje (2,00 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Operite, ogulite i sitno nasjeckajte luk, mrkve i tofu. Gljive narežite na tanke trakice. Stavite ulje u veliki lonac i na jakoj vatri prodinstajte luk dok ne postane staklast. Dodajte narezane mrkvu i tofu i kratko prokuhajte da omekšaju. Ubacite unutra gljive, temeljac, čili, soja sos i sesamovo ulje te pustite da zavrije. Smanjite temperaturu i krčkajte 15 minuta, pa dodajte ocat.

Dobro rastopite kukuruzni škrob u toploj vodi i polako dolijevajte u juhu uz neprekidno miješanje, kako se ne bi napravile velike grude škroba. Nastavite miješati dok se juha ne zgusne do željene konzistencije još koju minutu, pa maknite s vatre. Imajte na umu kako će se juha još dodatno zgusnuti kako se bude hladila. Razmutite jaja u maloj zdjelici, pa u tankom mlazu uz nježno miješanje ulijevajte u juhu.

Kušajte i prilagodite začine. Poslužite posipano sa malo nasjeckanog mladog luka ili vlasca. Ova juha se super drži u frižideru i podgrijava.
