Karl’s Grilled Ponzu Shiitaki Mushrooms

I made a Japanese feast for Sunday’s dinner. Miriam had requested that it be a vegetable forward and a low sugar meal.  Japanese dishes seem to have a lot of added sugar, but I could work with that.

Karl’s Japanese Bar Style Pickles

I found a book Izakaya: Japanese Bar food. A few weeks ago I made some pickled cucumbers for my Japanese bar meal. Because it was a last minute decision, I did not have the hours necessary to marinate the cucumbers and carrots. For my ramen meal, I took the time to make the bar style pickles more like the book’s recipe.

Karl’s Japanese Bar Style Santa Maria Tri-tip and Green Onion Skewers

Last week, Jan and I went over the hill to Santa Cruz to visit her “new” brother. While we were there, we stopped by a large book store that was going out of business. The cookbook section was fairly picked over, but as I was perusing the fiction section I found a book Izakaya: Japanese Bar food—someone had obviously picked it up and then changed their mind, leaving it “where ever.” Their loss, my gain. This Sunday, I decided to make a Japanese bar style dinner.
