Despite busy schedules, catching up with loved ones is something all of us do once in a while. Whether you’re catching up with just one person or as a group, one thing that will always bring people together is good food. Good food accompanied by a good ambience and company makes a great experience. Read on for our food recommendations that you can enjoy at your next get-together!
Our first recommendation is a versatile dish that anyone can enjoy - Sukiyaki! It is a one-pot dish originating from Japan and typically involves thinly sliced beef or pork and vegetables. These ingredients are then slowly cooked in a mixture of soy sauce, sugar and mirin. The slow cooking process allows the ingredients to soak in and absorb the broth, making it really flavourful.
To make your sukiyaki taste even better, try pouring some of J-Lek's Sukiyaki Sauce into the pot right when you're about to serve - you won't regret it! Otherwise, you can just use the sauce as a regular dipping sauce.
The Sukiyaki Sauce is concentrated compared to the broth, creating a contrast in texture and consistency. This contrast is complementary to the vegetables and meat in the dish, which helps elevate the overall flavour without overwhelming your tastebuds.
If you prefer something lighter, try making a Seafood Pizza! Similar to Sukiyaki, its method of preparation is simple - just make a batter, mix in some vegetables and seafood, fry the mixture and serve!
Seafood pizza is best served with J-Lek's Sukiyaki Sauce as well. The sauce gives a strong and hearty flavour to the otherwise ‘light’ seafood taste from the pizza.
J-Lek Sukiyaki Sauce
Besides traditional Sukiyaki and Seafood Pizza, J-Lek’s Sukiyaki Sauce can also be enjoyed with dishes like Thai Sukiyaki and Grilled Meat. This sauce is a product that we highly recommend because of its versatility. It can be used in both cooking and as a dipping sauce but its taste is still authentic either way.
J-Lek also has many other sauces in its lineup, such as Thai Garlic Basil, Phad Thai and dipping sauces like Sriracha Chili. You’ll be spoilt for choice.
