Wow, this is an interesting one.  Not sure I even have a Japanese recipe at all.

I was going to go teriyaki but thought I'd give it a broader scope of recipes by just going Japanese.

Unusual choice Tadpole.
Glad for the challenge though.
The Japanese do have camp ovens, so I hope I can find something online.

The challenge rules say you don't actually have to cook anything....raw fish anyone? ;D

I like Japanese food, one of the reasons if I ever get a chance to go back to Japan to sample some of there foods. Every area in Japan has it own take on foods, so there is plenty to try.

I bought some Japanese Curry yesterday to try one of their curry recipe however when I looked at it today it has got three flavour enhancers in it (621, 627, 631).† 621 is MSG so Maggie cannot eat it.

I usually have a look at the labels on new things but didnít even think of it.

With the current state of affairs around Australia and it's shops, we've decided to change the theme to "Cook Anything" as Japanese may be a bit too specific at the moment. If you had a Japanese style meal planned, feel free to still cook it  :)

Flour and Bread Mixes have been non existence in out shops for quite a while now. I might need to buy hot cross buns this year instead of making them.  :'( :'(

Up here too, we cooked a loaf of bread in the camp oven yesterday and went to buy some more flour an hour or so ago and there was not one packet on the shelves.† ::)

Did a lamb roast yesterday, was originally planning on trying to cook it for long enough to do a pulled lamb style dinner but didn't get it on early enough so had it as a roast. Still turned out great, but slightly overdone for a roast. I kept forgetting to take photos so the pictures were a bit rubbish towards the end

That is a mighty fine looking roast.  Thumbs up from me.

We first tried this dish many years ago when a we had a student with us, she cooked it and it was just ok.
We went for lunch in Japan and also had this dish, and it was much better, since I have cooked it a few times, and found it easy to make and a filling meal.

Thanks guys and thanks to everyone who voted but do you know I donít know that I really deserve this.

What I put up was just our dinner one night.  Nothing special just a simple roast dinner cooked in the Weber outside.

Cheers

I think that is the point Derek, it is as easy as cooking dinner to put something up. Looked good to. :)
