Teriyaki Chicken with Pan-Seared Portobello Mushroom

Teriyaki Chicken:

1. Prepare a whole boneless chicken leg. Sprinkle a little salt and black pepper.

2. Use the back of knife to hit chicken a bit.

3. Heat a pan on stove. When the pan is hot, put the chicken inside with skin side down. Flip over when the skin turns golden brown. Fry the other side till brown, too.

4. If there is much oil after sear, you can pour the oil out.

5. Add in 1 tablespoon light soy sauce, 1/2 tablespoon dark soy sauce, 1 tbsp sugar and 1 tablespoon honey. Let the chicken be coated with sauce.

6. Pour in hot water just enough to cover the chicken. Cover the lid and simmer for a while.

7. Remove the lid. Turn to high heat to reduce the sauce.

Portobello Mushroom:

Remove the Portobello mushroom’s stem first and wash clean.

1. Heat a pan. Cut in a small cube of butter.

2. When butter melts, add the mushroom in with cap side down. Sear for 3 mins. If your mushroom is really really big, probably you will need 5 mins. Keep the heat low, don’t burn the mushroom.

3. Add 1 drop of soy sauce onto the stem hole of each mushroom.

4. Flip the mushroom over, sear the other side for 3 mins with the lid on.

5. A lot of juice will come out. Use a spatula, and press the mushroom gently to squeeze the juice out.

6. Flip over and squeeze the other side. Keep cooking till the juice evaporates.

 

Mushroom & Beef Steak Rice Bento

Bento for my husband (his second day at work).

I have  seriously thought about what is a good match for rice to be in his bento. The first choice is sure to be meat dish with sauce, so that the flavor will go into the rice. My rule is do not repeat the same dish in 3 days. Since my husband already had chicken yesterday, so I chose beef. He’s also a beef fan.

  1. Prepare steak. Sprinkle salt and black pepper over both sides. Heat a pan. Drizzle in some oil. When oil is heated, place steak in. Mine is not very thick, so I just need to fry it for about 2 mins for each side. My husband likes tender not hard texture. So I tried to shorten the cooking time.
  2. Flip the steak after one side turns brown, (about 2 mins). Cut in 1 small chunk of butter. Also add in 2 crushed cloves of garlic, a little dried thyme. Fry for another 2 mins.
  3. Try to stand the steak and sear the side. Then put steak into a plate and let it rest.
  4. Same pan, no need to wash, no need to wipe. Because there is still some butter left with meat juice. I used it to fry mini portobello mushrooms.
  5. Mushroom should be washed and stem-removed before frying. Fry the gill side first for 2 mins. Then flip it over and fry for another 2 mins. There will be a small hole after the stem got removed. Drizzle in light soy sauce into the hole.
  6. Flip the mushroom over again. turn to low heat and lid on. Cook for 2-3 mins. Turn it over, lid on for 2-3 mins, too.
  7. Mushroom out. Same pan. I made a little sauce with the rest fluid. Also juice comes out when the steak is resting. Add the meat juice in. 1/4 tsp flour, mix well. Add in 1/4 light soy sauce, 1 pinch sugar, dash of black pepper. Reduce the sauce.
  8. Cut steak into strips. Place them over rice and top with sauce. Also put in mushroom and some boiled veggies.

My husband likes his bento very much. 🙂

Portobello Mushroom Pizza

1. Prepare Portobello mushroom as pizza crust: wash them gently under water. Remove the stem.

2. Mix 1 tsp finely chopped garlic with 1 tablespoon melted butter in a small bowl.

3. Brush mushroom with butter & garlic mixture. Sprinkle very little salt over mushroom.

4. Cut cherry tomatoes into halves. Mozzarella cheese ball into small chunks.

5. Place tomato and cheese alternatively on the mushroom.

6. Drizzle a little olive oil and garnish with chopped spring onion or basil.

Into 220 degree C oven for 13-15 mins.

Egg Stuffed Mushroom

Since last time I cooked portobello mushroom last time, my husband had deeply fallen in love with this giant brown mushroom. He required to buy some portobello mushroom when we went out for shopping.

One of my hobbies is to explore the different cooking method for different ingredient. So I decided to try this dish with this mushroom. It’s quite easy.

  1. preheat oven to 180 Degree c.
  2. wash portobello mushroom gently in water. Then wipe them dry with kitchen towels.
  3. remove the stem. Also use a spoon to scratch off the black gills to save more room for egg.
  4. brush mushroom with butter.
  5. sprinkle a little salt over the mushroom. Only a very little is enough.
  6. place mushroom in baking try, better with a parchment paper underneath. crack an egg onto the gill of each mushroom.
  7. sprinkle cheese, black gills scratched off  and chopped spring onion on egg. Avoid egg yolk.

Into the oven for 15-18 mins. Or till cheese melted and egg is done.

I kind of forgot to take the mushroom out, so my egg was overly done a bit. 😦

But my husband still loves them. 🙂

Steak & Portobello Mushroom

This is the first time for me to cook Portobello mushroom. They are really big and look like a giant brown umbrella.

For steak:

1. Season both sides with salt and black pepper.

2. Heat a pan. A little oil in. Sear the steak for about 3 mins.

3. Flip the steak over. Cut in a cube of butter. And add in 2 cloves of garlic and dried thyme (fresh thyme will be better, but I didn’t have any at that time).

4. Fry for about 3 mins. Use a spoon, to scoop better and spread over steak. Sear the edge side too.

Steak in the plate and rest.
