Easy Zucchini Chips
Added on Jan 27, 2021
1 large zucchini, sliced
2 tablespoons olive oil
Kosher salt

Preheat oven to 225°F.

Line two large baking sheets with silicon baking mats or parchment paper. After you slice your zucchini, place the slices on a sheet of paper towels and take another paper towel and sandwich the zucchini slices and press on them. This helps draw out the liquid and sort of dries the zucchini.

Line up the zucchini slices on the prepared baking sheet tightly next to each other in a straight line, making sure not to overlap them.

In a small bowl, pour your olive oil in and take a pastry brush to brush the olive oil on each zucchini slice.

Sprinkle salt throughout the baking sheet. Do NOT over-season, in fact, it's better to use less salt initially because the slices will shrink. You can always add more later.

Bake for about 2 plus hours until they start to brown and are crisp. Salt to your taste. Let cool before serving. Enjoy.

Oxtail Soup
Added on Jan 21, 2021
4 lbs. Oxtail, cut into pieces
2 cubes beef bouillon (Knorr brand)
2 cubes chicken bouillon (Knorr brand)
5 whole star anise
4 slivers Ginger
1 cup raw peanuts, shelled and soaked raw in warm water to easily remove skin skinned
Hawaiian Salt to taste
Chinese Parsley, chopped up for garnish (use a lot!)

Parboil oxtail 20 to 30 minutes. Rinse and trim fat. Place in pot and cover with water approximately 2? above oxtail. Bring to boil and add bouillon cubes, star anise and ginger. Simmer for 1 hour. Add peanuts. Simmer for another 1 to 1½ hours or until oxtail is tender. Skim residue from broth. Add Hawaiian salt to taste. Garnish with Chinese Parsley.

Variation: Serve with grated ginger and soy sauce as a dipping sauce for the oxtail. Serve with fresh cooked vegetables such as mustard cabbage and Chinese cabbage that can be added to the soup as desired.

Pressure cooker instructions
Par-cook the Oxtail under pressure, covered in water for 10 minutes. Release pressure, remove oxtails, rinse and trim fat. Place the oxtails back in the pressure cooker and cover with water about 2? above the oxtails. Bring to a boil, then add the beef and chicken bouillon cubes, star anise, raw peanuts and slivers of ginger. Cover the pressure cooker and bring to pressure under high heat, then reduce the heat to medium low and let it pressure cook for 40 minutes. Remove from heat and let the pressure cool naturally until pressure is gone, then remove lid. Skim residue thoroughly, then stir broth and adjust flavor with Hawaiian salt until it tastes “jus’ right”. Add bok choy and/or choy sum and reconstituted shiitake mushrooms and continue to cook in soup on medium-low (no pressure) until they’re tender.

Garnish with Chinese Parsley and served with grated ginger and shoyu dipping sauce.

Nori Wrapped Mochiko Garlic Chicken
Added on Jan 20, 2021
5 chicken thighs, deboned and cut into 2-3 bite-size pieces (This depends on size of chicken thighs)
4 eggs
10 tbsp. soy sauce
6 tbsp. sugar
8 tbsp. mochiko flour
8 tbsp. corn starch
4-5 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground ginger
Oil for frying
5-6 nori sheets, cut into strips

Mix first eight ingredients together, now take your deboned chicken and lay them in a baking pan and pour your garlic mochiko mixture over all your chicken pieces evenly and marinate for 5-7 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.

When you’re chicken is done marinating you’re going to wrap a piece of nori around a piece of chicken and continue this process until all you’re chicken has been wrapped with the nori. Now heat oil in a large wok and fry all your garlic mochiko nori wrapped chicken until golden brown, put chicken in a bowl with a paper towel when done to drain out excess oil. Enjoy

*Tip* you can leave the chicken skin on for this recipe but I took mine off.
