If you have pork belly and onions in the fridge, you can make it right away. It’s also great for a quick lunch.

The sweet and spicy taste of this dish will make you want to eat more and more rice, so be sure to prepare a lot of rice. It tastes even better with red ginger.

No. 2: Tomato Risotto and Tomato Risotto (Revised)

 Image of Tomato risotto dinner table

The crown of the second place ranking

I had never made risotto at home before the Hot Cook came to my house.

Because it looks like the heat is difficult to control, and if I make it myself, I was afraid I would end up making porridge…

The first dish I made in the Hot Cook was tomato risotto, and it definitely tastes like the food served in an Italian restaurant!

No matter how tired I am or how annoying it is to cook a meal, this recipe is easy to make as I just have to add the ingredients into the inner pot.

You don’t even need to add onions if you are tired of cutting them. Just use a canned tomato is fine. Sprinkle some parmesan cheese on top will make it even more authentic taste!

After that, I tried out several different recipes for Tomato Risotto, and I posted the one that tasted the best as “Tomato Risotto (Revised)”!

The recipe uses simple ingredients, and consommé is not used, but just salt. However, I think it tastes even better than before.

After several tries, I have come up with the most delicious recipe, so I would like to share with you the updated recipe by comparing the old and new ingredients, seasonings, and photos!

No. 3: Anhydrous Curry with Chicken and Vegetables

Image of Anhydrous Curry

The crown of the third place ranking

Waterless cooking is the specialty of the Hot Cook.

To be honest, you can cook curry in a short time with a pressure cooker, but the food will be burnt with a pressure cooker if it is waterless.

With the Hot Cook, its electronic sensor is smart enough to determine when it is cooked, so it never burns.

You can also use the Hot Cook to cook food on a timer in the morning and just eat it when you get home at night.

The sweetness from the onions and the umami flavor from the chicken gives it an authentic taste.

It is a curry made only with water from vegetables without adding any water at all. The sweetness and deliciousness of vegetables and the curry richness overlap, giving it a deep taste that seems to have been simmered for hours even though it has been left alone for an hour.

No. 4: Samgyetang Soup

 Image of Samgyetang Soup

Samgyetang soup can be easily and deliciously made with the Hot Cook.

The umami flavor of the chicken meat from the chicken wings is concentrated and combined with the garlic, and it gives the soup a very deep, warm flavor.

At home, we have modified the original recipe by adding a large amount of rice and shiitake mushrooms. So this is not a soup but a staple meal. It is also delicious with a lot of pepper.

I also made a more authentic soup with jujubes and wolfberries, and it was even more delicious.

You may find wolfberry and pine nuts in the "Chinese section" even at ordinary supermarkets. I couldn't find dried jujube at a nearby supermarket, but I could find it in the seasoning section of a department store.

No. 5: Roast beef

Image of Roast Beef

I love roast beef and used to cook it in a frying pan until the Hot Cook came to our house.

I wanted it to be medium rare and pink inside, but if I overcooked it, it would turn out hard and well-done, and if I undercooked it, the inside would turn out raw.

But I was surprised when I tried making them with the Hot Cook! The “low-temperature cooking” function allows the meat to cook slowly over a long time while retaining its flavor.

When I sliced the roast beef, the cut edge was a nice rosé color inside. Also, since the beef is cooked at a low temperature along with vegetables, its aroma is transferred to the beef, giving it a pleasing aroma.

It is very tender when I tasted it, and the flavor of the meat and vegetables fills my mouth. Please try to make it!

As I cut the roast beef, it was a nice red color and evenly cooked. The meat is very tender when I tasted it, and the flavor of the meat spreads all around in my mouth.

As a similar recipe to the roast beef, I also tried making Beef Tataki (seared beef) , which was also a great success!

It was tender, juicy, and very tasty. The Beef Tataki is served with shiso Japanese basil and Ajipon sauce. If you prefer the Japanese style, try this one.

No.6: Green Pepper Steak

Green Pepper Steak is a staple of Chinese set menus. This recipe can be easily and deliciously prepared with the Hot Cook.

You can make it with the seasonings you have at home!

Once you put the ingredients in the Hot Cook inner pot, just leave it, and it will be ready in just 10 minutes! It’s a great dish to serve with white rice, and you can enjoy plenty of meat and vegetables!

No. 7: Spare Ribs

Image of Spare Ribs

Spare ribs are another recipe I’ve arranged.

They are tender, have just the right flavor, and taste amazing when served with mashed potatoes!

It’s easy to make, so please give it a try if you have spare ribs, onions, and seasonings.

With this recipe, the fatty part of the meat melts and disappears as soon as you put it in your mouth. The simple tomato ketchup-based seasoning, combined with the sourness of the vinegar, gave the dish an old-fashioned, comforting, familiar taste. The mashed potatoes served with it are also outstandingly delicious!

No.8: Cream Stew

Image of Cream Stew

No more need for store-bought roux for cream stew!

You can easily make an excellent stew that is more flavorful and comforting than using a roux.

What surprised me most was the potatoes. Before using the Hot Cook, I used to cook potatoes in a pan, but the potatoes would get mushy during the simmering process, so I had to take them out and add them again at the end.

But the Hot Cook has an automatic sensor, so of course, the potatoes don’t fall apart at all. This is really amazing!

The potatoes are just adequate soft, the onions are tender, the chicken is juicy and tender, and the carrots are just the right consistency.

It’s a dish that will warm your body and soul during the cold season.

No. 9: Stewed Hamburg Steak

Image Stewed Hamburg Steak

This is an arranged recipe. The meat of the recipe is juicy, the flavor is deep, and it’s excellent!

This time I used the demiglace sauce I made in the Hot Cook, but of course, you can make it with a canned sauce sold at a supermarket.

However, if you have onions and mushrooms, you can easily make the equivalent of three cans of commercial demiglace sauce in one batch with the Hot Cook.

If you make a large amount and keep it in the freezer in small portions, you can use it for a variety of dishes. Please try making it.

If you are in a hurry, you can just insert the mixed-up meat dough without browning it in the inner pot.

No.10: Stir-Fried Beancurd in Hot Sauce (Mapo Tofu)

 Image Mapo Tofu

This is also a recipe that I arranged myself

I’ve always loved Mapo Tofu, but I was never satisfied with the flavor or the thickness of the sauce cooked with Hot Cook, so I went through dozens of trials and errors.

After trying many different approaches, I finally got the taste I wanted, so I decided to release the revised recipe.

I’m confident that this is as good as the Mapo Tofu you get at restaurants or take-out! If you like Mapo Tofu, this is one dish you should definitely try making.

If you don’t like spicy food, you can leave out the Hwajiaofen (Sichuan Pepper) and reduce the Toubanjang (Chinese Chili Bean Sauce), or if you prefer to have a numbing effect, add more.

No.11: Ratatouille

Revised Ratatouille on the dining table

Ratatouille is a healthy recipe that uses lots of vegetables and tomatoes!

It is made using the “no-water cooking” method, which is the specialty of the Hot Cook, so no water is added, and just the water from the vegetables is used.

The key to making it delicious is not to use consommé, but to use salt only in the technique of Ms. Kazuyo Katsuma, which brings out the umami flavor of the ingredients as they are.

This way, you can easily make a healthy and delicious ratatouille full of vegetables with the umami flavor and richness from the vegetables.

No. 12: Steamed Vegetables with Bagna Cauda

Bagna cauda with vegetables

Steamed vegetables are another specialty of the Hot Cook.

If you boil vegetables, vitamins and umami flavor will dissolve in the water, but with Hot Cook, you can steam vegetables while retaining their sweetness, umami flavor, and flavor of the ingredients themselves.

In addition, the sensor detects the firmness of each vegetable so that vegetables that are easily softened do not become too soft, and hard vegetables become just the right consistency. It’s amazing!

Bagna cauda is recommended for steamed vegetables. Bagna cauda is especially popular among women, but if you try to make it in a regular pan, you have to put in the cream and keep stirring it over low heat to prevent it from burning.

With Hot Cook, all you have to do is insert the ingredients, and it’s ready in 15 minutes.

You can also use milk instead of cream to make a lighter sauce.

As long as you keep anchovies in the freezer, you can make a delicious Bagna cauda sauce anytime with ingredients you have in the fridge.

Hot Cook Recipe [How to Make Steamed Vegetable Bagna Cauda]The sweetness of the veggies is supreme!
The amount of water used for steaming is only 3 tablespoons per 500 grams of vegetables. The rest of the vegetables are steamed to perfection, coming only from their natural moisture. This is a vegetable dish with wonderful sweetness! I was able to enjoy the taste of each vegetable.

The great thing about Hot Cook's Bagna Cauda Sauce is that the delicious sauce can be easily made with either milk or fresh cream. The milk-based bagna cauda sauce is lighter than the cream-based sauce. However, the anchovies and garlic give it a strong flavor, and the sauce is perfectly thick.

No. 13: Shrimp Chili

Shrimp Chili Eye Catch

Shrimp chili is another arranged recipe.

The sweet and spicy shrimp chili sauce is really unbelievably amazingly delicious and excellent.

The tomato ketchup does a great job, and I could eat rice with just the shrimp chili sauce alone. The shrimp was also fluffy.

The chili sauce is not very spicy because it contains only 1 teaspoon of Toubanjang (Chinese Chili Bean Sauce), but you can adjust it to your preference.

No. 14: Stir-Fried/Braised Chinese dishes with Oyster Sauce

 

Braised Chinese Stir-Fry with Oyster Sauce 3 Recipes

It was hard to decide which recipe was the best, so I decided to combine three Chinese stir-fry recipes in the 14th place!

Hot Cook and oyster sauce go very well together, and the Chinese stir-fry recipes are delicious and never fails.

The amount of vegetables and seasonings used in each dish is different, so they taste similar but actually different! They are quick and easy to make, so be sure to prepare oyster sauce before making it.

These are three dishes that will make you want to keep on eating.

Recipe 1: Stir-Fried/Braised Chicken and Cashew Nuts

Image Chicken and Cashew Nuts

The name of this dish is “Braised Chicken and Cashew Nuts,” but it is an authentic Chinese stir-fried dish.

Soft cashew nuts and chicken are mixed with the just-right consistency of the starchy sauce, and its taste is indescribably delicious.

I have tried it with both cashews and almonds, and they are both delicious. I personally prefer cashews, though.

It is simple but has a deep flavor. You can serve it with white rice or as a snack!

Recipe 2: Stir-Fry Chicken and Broccoli with Oyster Sauce

Image Stir-fry chicken and broccoli with oyster sauce

Stir-fried chicken and broccoli with oyster sauce is really delicious. Please try to make it.

The only seasonings used are garlic and oyster sauce, but vegetables and meat bring a deep and rich flavor.

The broccoli is stir-fried just right, not too soft, and not too mushy. The chicken is tender and juicy, and you cannot stop eating the dish.

You can add paprika to make it more colorful, but broccoli alone is also delicious.

Recipe 3: Wok-Fried Beef with Colorful Vegetables

Image Wok-Fried Beef with Colorful Vegetables

This is an arranged recipe.

This is a recipe I’ve been trying to make with the concept of easy and tasty but speedy.

This time, I used leftover beef ribs and vegetables to make what I imagined to be Green Pepper Steak.

I was nervous to see how it would turn out, but it was really delicious, hot, and full of flavor. It is perfect with both alcohol and white rice, and it is a taste that will keep you eating more and more.

Red and yellow bell peppers are a bit expensive in Japan, but when cooked, they are soft and fragrant, so even those who don't like the crunchiness and unique aroma of regular bell peppers will enjoy them. Of course, they also go very well with beef.

No.15: Chili Beans

image Chili Beans

I used to love Wendy’s Chili Beans, but the store near me closed down, so I couldn’t eat them anymore.

Since then, I used to buy a canned pork chili beans from KALDI, but the canned ones were not very tasty.

I found a recipe for chili con can in the Hot Cook menu list, but I didn’t have kidney beans or spices, so I made it with boiled soybeans at first, and it was a somehow different taste.

Then, when I used kidney beans and chili powder or cumin with the Hot Cook’s recipe, I could easily recreate Wendy’s Chili Beans!

It’s very good and tasty, so it seems like I can eat it every day. They’re also good for you with all the veggies, tomatoes, and beans, and they’re delicious!

Regardless of whether you like Mexican or you’ve never had chili con can before, this is a recipe you should try making.

It’s unbelievable how easy it is to cook the dish, and you just have to put vegetables, bacon, and pasta in the inner pot. The first time I ate the finished Napolitan Pasta, I was like, “What? What a surprise!

No. 17: Clam Chowder

Image Clam Chowder

Clam Chowder is a difficult dish to make at home. It tends to spill over easily and sometimes gets burnt.

We used to use Campbell’s canned clam chowder for a long time.

But when I tried making clam chowder in the Hot Cook, I was amazed! It makes a delicious clam chowder that is full of flavor from the clams.

Before I tried it, I was worried that the richness of the clam chowder would not come out well, but it thickened up just right, and I could taste the flavor of the vegetables as well as the juice from asari clams.

The dish is full of volume, so it may be enough for dinner, even if you just have clam chowder and bread or rice. It’s an excellent recipe for the cold season.

No. 18: Aqua Pazza

Image Aqua Pazza

This is definitely a dish that I would never have made if I didn’t have a Hot Cook because it looked so difficult to make.

The flavor of the broth from the fish and shellfish is excellent and tastes completely like a dish served in a fine restaurant. The cooked fish is not dry at all, and it was pretty juicy.

If you serve it at a party, I am sure you will be praised as a good cook by your guests!

No. 20: Vegetable Soup

Image Vegetable Soup

This is a vegetable soup recipe seasoned only with salt, as recommended by Ms. Kazuyo Katsuma.

You might think, how can you get a deep, rich flavor without consommé? But this is the specialty of Hot Cook.

It draws out the umami flavor from the vegetables and makes a much tastier soup than you would typically make in a pot.

All you have to do is chop the vegetables, add water and salt, and press the button. This soup is gentle on your stomach and is perfect for having a cold, hangover, or other sicknesses.

My husband, Ken, is the one who always cooks for me using the Hot Cook, and I just enjoy eating it.

He didn’t even know how to use a microwave oven before the Hot Cook came to our house, so I’m glad we have the Hot Cook.

The most amazing thing about the Hot Cook is that it brings out the umami flavor of vegetables and meat with just salt. You don’t need consommé anymore!

Using just salt is the advice of Ms. Kazuyo Katsuma. We got olive oil and salt also recommended by Ms. Kazuyo Katsuma and widely used by Hot Cook users.

No. 21: Meat Loaf

Chicken Meat loaf and Whole Meatloaf Hamburg

This is an arranged recipe of Chicken Meatloaf and Whole Meatloaf Hamburg. Both are easy to make and really tasty and juicy.

The Chicken Meatloaf is refreshing and can be eaten without any dipping sauce, or it can be served with mustard and soy sauce or just salt.

The Whole Meatloaf Hamburg has some volume, but not too heavy. The tomato-ketchup based sauce with the richness of the melted cheese makes it a perfect dish to serve with rice, alcohol, or for lunch.

Unlike the No. 9 Stewed Hamburg Steak, there is no need for making demiglace sauce, so all you need is meat, onions, eggs, and seasonings to make this easy cooking recipe!

No.22: Chikuzen-ni (Stewed Chicken and Vegetables)

Image Chikuzen-ni

I love Chikuzen-ni because it is healthy and delicious, but it takes your effort to prepare, peel, and cut various vegetables. I remember that the Chikuzen-ni made with a packed cut-vegetables did not taste very good when I made it in a pot before…

But I was surprised when I tried cooking it in Hot Cook using a packed cut-vegetable! The vegetables were really delicious, soaked in the flavor and tender.

If you buy konnyaku that has already removed alkaline flavor and chicken that has been cut into pieces, you can easily make this dish by simply throwing the packed vegetables, hand-torn konnyaku, chicken, and seasonings into the Hot Cook.

Prepared foods sold in supermarkets tend to have strong flavors and use preservatives.

So if you are tired but want to eat vegetables, this is the dish for you.

No. 23: Juicy Teriyaki Chicken

Image Juicy Teriyaki Chicken

This plump and glazed chicken is a great side dish for a lunch box.

The aroma coming from the chicken skin is irresistible. The meat turns out surprisingly fluffy and tender.

If you make it in a frying pan, you have to watch it all the time in front of the stove because it could get too hard or burnt.

Once the skin is cooked in the pan, all you have to do is put it in the Hot Cook with the seasonings in this recipe.

The seasoning is soy sauce-based with a slightly sweet and gentle taste. The secret ingredient of tomato ketchup gives it a slightly sour taste, making it a delicious dish.

No. 24: Pork and Cabbage Sauted with Spicy Miso (Hoicoro)

When I made this dish the first time, I was amazed at how delicious and easily Chinese food can be cooked without frying in a pan with the oil!

The sweetness of the cabbage and miso and the spiciness of the bean sauce made it very tasty.

The cabbage is not overly soft, and it turns out nice and crispy.

It’s also great for dieters because it uses very little oil. So I wonder why it tastes so good when all you have to do is add the ingredients and seasonings!

No. 25: Carbonara and Seafood Cream Pasta

Carbonara and Seafood Cream Pasta

Carbonara, an arranged recipe, is ranked in for the first time. It is a creamy pasta that is just as delicious as seafood cream pasta.

As for the carbonara, after dozens of trials and errors, I finally came up with a recipe satisfactory to me.

When I try to make pasta dishes with low water content in the Hot Cook, the pasta sometimes sticks together and forms clumps. The key to this recipe is how to solve this problem.

All you have to do is add the carbonara sauce at the end and mix it in, so you can buy a store-bought sauce and mix it in to make it even quicker. However, the sauce in this recipe is very creamy and delicious, so please give it a try.

The seafood cream pasta is also an arranged recipe. I didn’t use consommé as per the Hot Cook recipe but cooked it using Ms. Kazuyo Katsuma’s method of salt amount.

I used frozen seafood mix, but I was worried about the smell of the frozen mix. So whenever I cooked it in a frying pan, I used to fry it in butter to remove the frozen smell.

With the Hot Cook, I didn’t fry the frozen seafood in butter, but just sprinkled some sake on it and threw it in the inner pot, so I was worried about its smell. But no worries! There was no smell at all.

The salt and olive oil brought out the umami flavor of the seafood, and it was very delicious.

The pasta is cooked together with the ingredients, so there is no need to boil it separately, making this a quick and easy recipe.

No.26: Fried Pork and Bean Sprouts

This is a quick and easy recipe to arrange, and you can save time. It only takes 3 minutes to make if you have pork and bean sprouts.

It’s easy to make, but it’s so delicious that you’ll want to eat it again and again.

The trick is to use black bean sprouts. According to “Tameshite Gatten,” popular TV program, the mung bean sprouts you often see in supermarkets become soggy when fried, so black bean sprouts are recommended.

I immediately bought some black bean sprouts at the supermarket and made Fried Pork and Bean Sprouts.

The finished dish was delicious and had adequate texture!

Just chop and add daikon radish and pork to the Hot Cook, and you will have a really gentle-tasting Japanese dish that has been slowly simmered.

It is thickened with potato starch, so you can eat all the soup as well.

Pork is used for the recipe, but of course, it can also be cooked with chicken wings.

Garnish with condiments such as mitsuba (Japanese parsley) and shiso (Japanese basil) can enhance the flavor. It is also delicious with a bit of yuzu pepper.

If you have much daikon radish in the fridge, please try making this dish!

No.28: Borscht

Borscht may not be something you usually make at home, but it is actually one of the world’s top three soups.

The world’s TOP 3 soups are “China’s Shark Fin Soup, France’s Bouillabaisse, Thailand’s Tom Yum Kung, and Russia’s Borscht.” But, you might wonder, “so isn’t that the world’s TOP 4 soup?” I think so too, but anyway…

I’ve been curious about Borscht for a long time because it’s featured in the Hot Cook menu book. However, I don’t even remember if I’ve ever had Borscht before, so I had no idea what it tasted like. But I was curious to see what the world’s TOP 3 best soups tasted like, so I made it.

This time, I didn’t use consommé but used salt to bring out the flavor of the ingredients. I was curious about the taste… it was so good that I said, “What! it’s amazing.”

I can now understand that it is indeed one of the three best soups in the world. It had a rich, lingering taste that made me want to try it again and again.

If you can find canned beets at places like KALDI, it’s easy to make and very tasty, so why don’t you try making it!

This is an arranged recipe for Oyakodon.

The best thing about the Hot Cook is that you can leave it alone once you put in the ingredients.

All you need are onions, eggs, and chicken. This is a convenient dish that can be made quickly for lunch.

It only takes about 15 minutes to prepare and cook, and you can easily make a delicious bowl of rice.
