Clean and devein the shrimp. Mix in the cornstarch and salt
Shred the pork tenderloin, and mix in the soy sauce and cornstarch.
Soak the mushrooms in warm water for at least 20 minutes. Remove the stems and cut the tops into shreds. (If you like, strain the soaking liquid and use part of it in the soup stock).
Heat wok and add 3 tablespoons oil. When oil is hot, add the shredded pork and stir-fry until it changes color. Set aside.
Add another 3 - 4 tablespoons to the wok. When oil is hot, add the shrimp and stir-fry until cooked. Set aside with pork.
Bring soup stock and mushrooms to a boil. Add the ketchup, soy sauce, sugar, vinegar, and salt. Bring to a boil again. Re-stir the cornstarch paste paste and add. Cook until starchy, and then add the pork, shrimp, and green peas. Keep warm over low heat.
Deep-fry the crispy rice in very hot oil until puffy and brown. Drain on paper towels. Quickly move the rice to the table, add the sesame oil to the hot shrimp mix and pour over the rice. The rice will crackle and pop as it meets the hot sauce.

1 tablespoon dry sherry
1 tablespoon salted fermented black beans, rinsed and chopped
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1 large clove garlic, minced

1/4 teaspoon hot chili flakes
1 pound fat-trimmed pork tenderloin, cut into 1/2-inch crosswise slices
About 1 1/3 pounds baby bok choy (each 2 to 3 in. long), rinsed

1. In a 3- to 4-quart pan over high heat, bring rice and 3 cups water to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until rice is tender to bite, about 20 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, in an 8- to 10-quart pan or a 14-inch wok, set a rack over at least 1 inch boiling water. Choose a shallow, rimmed pan about 8 inches wide that fits on the rack and can be lifted out (fashion a string harness, if needed).

4. Cover pan with foil and set pork pan on rack; cover larger pan. Steam on high heat until pork is no longer pink in center (cut to test), about 12 minutes. Protecting hands, lift out pork pan and rack. Keep pork warm.

5. Add enough water to pan to make 1 inch deep and bring to a boil. Add bok choy, cover, and boil until just tender when pierced, 2 to 4 minutes. Drain.

6. Serve rice in bowls with pork and juice, and bok choy. Add soy to taste.

Country of the Food: Japan | Email to Author               Posted on 21 April 2003 @ 15:45:39

Sushi, a representative food of Japan, is a vinegared rice garnished with an
assortment of fresh vegetables, fish and seasonings. You'll find many of
the ingredients ... and the bamboo mat ... at an Oriental food store.


2 c White, Short-Grain Rice, preferably Japanese
3 c Water (or according to rice package directions)
3-1/2 tb Rice Vinegar -or- White Vinegar
1 tb Sugar
1-1/2 ts Salt

Cook rice in water for about 25 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed.
Spread rice evenly over bottom of a large glass or wooden bowl.

Mix vinegar, sugar and salt together in a small bowl.

Sprinkle vinegar mixture generously over the rice. You may not need all the
vinegar mixture. The rice should remain somewhat dry.

With a large wooden spoon, mix rice with a slicing motion.

Leave the rice in the bowl, covered with a damp cloth.


1 pk Nori Seaweed, large or medium (Quality nori seaweed must be crisp.
Look for a well-sealed package.)
1 Bamboo Mat, medium or large, for rolling sushi

FILLINGS ... Chose from these combinations:

1 Cucumber, cut into thin strips the same length as seaweed
1 Avocado, peeled, pitted and cut into thin strips
Fresh Cilantro, minced

2 oz Daikon Radish, cut into strips
2 oz Pickled Ginger
4 oz Small Shrimp, cooked

4 oz Prosciutto
1 Cucumber, cut into thin strips
1 Avocado, peeled, pitted and cut into thin strips
2 oz Pickled Ginger


Place one sheet of nori seaweed on the bamboo mat.

Spread approximately 3/4 cup rice onto seaweed; flatten with the back of a
spoon. Leave uncovered 3/8 inch (1 cm) at front of sheet and 3/4 inch (2 cm
at end of sheet.

Place all filling ingredients at center.

To form roll, lift one end of the mat and begin to roll and compress the
seaweed. Use the mat only to help form the roll. (It may be difficult at
first to keep the mat from rolling with the seaweed.)

Moisten end of seaweed with a small amount of water to seal the roll.

Cut into rounds approximately 1/2 inch thick.

Yield: 10 servings; 5 rolls, 6 pieces/roll
