Baked Rice is a classic dish in Hong Kong, the most popular is Baked Fried Rice with Pork Chops. It’s a bed of rice top with meat, vegetable and cheese, and baked until the cheese melted. I had my first taste of Baked Rice in Hong Kong style Restaurant Kim Gary 5 years ago.
When I stumbled upon Meat Doria recipe on Just One Cookbook, I was excited to learn that baked rice in Japan is called Doria. I love browsing on Just One Cookbook, the homecook Japanese food is so DELICIOUS and Japanese cuisine is one of my favourite! The dishes are easy, but requires some Japanese sauces/ ingredients. The Meat Doria recipe is something I can easily whipped up Baked Rice with the ingredients in my kitchen.
With the ingredients I have in my kitchen, I tweeked the recipe. And of course using the Homemade Tomato Sauce in my previous post. For a Japanese-style Meat Doria, get the recipe from Just One Cookbook.
Today is Day 12th of October Unprocessed Challenge. It was more challenging that I thought, especially with eating out and usage of seasoning sauces. Over these 12 days, I managed to achieve almost 90% unprocessed and I’m proud of myself. I will be away tomorrow until next Tuesday and I will try my best to continue this challenge. See you next week and have a great weekend!
- 1 large Onion - chopped finely
- 1 Celery Stalk - chopped finely
- 1 small Broccoli - cut into very small florets
- 6 Shiitake mushrooms - soaked and chopped finely
- 2 tablespoon Olive Oil
- 1 bay leaf
- 200g Minced Beef (can also use chicken or pork)
- 60ml (1/4 cup) Chinese Cooking Wine
- 1 diced tomato (I use my homemade tomato sauce)
- Pinch of Sugar
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- 1 teaspoon Butter
- 2 servings Cooked Rice
- Meat Sauce
- 1 cup Cheddar Cheese
- In a large skillet, heat oil on medium high. Add garlic, onion and bay leaf and cook until fragrant the onion become translucent.
- Add celery and carrot, and cook until soft.
- Add mushroom and meat. Use a spatula to break up the meat.
- When the meat is almost cooked, add tomatoes. Then add water until all the ingredients are covered.
- Add wine and reduce heat to medium low and simmer (without a lid) until most liquid is evaporated.
- Add salt and pepper to taste. (Remember to under season the sauce, because the cheese will be quite salty)
- Butter the baking dish and put rice inside. Pour the meat sauce on top of rice.
- Sprinkle 2 kinds of cheese on top.
- Cook in the oven or toaster oven until cheese is all melted and slightly burnt.
ii) I wanted the cheese to be mostly burnt and left the dish in the oven for more than 30 minutes. The cheese ended up harden instead of melted :P
Just As Delish!
