My Award-Winning Recipe for Dried Enoki Chahan (Fried Rice)/受賞したレシピ「干しえのきチャーハン」

I just wanted to announce that I have won the "Idea Award" in the "Recipe Contest", conducted by the Uonuma Kinoko and Sansai Promotion Association.


My award-winning recipe for dried enoki chahan (fried rice):

Ingredients (one serving)

30 g dried enoki (300 g when fresh)
5 fake crabmeat sticks
2 eggs
2 chawan (bowls) of rice

1 tsp salad oil
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
Decoration such as green laver or long green onion


1. Put dried enoki in a container, add a small amount of water, and heat in a microwave for tens of seconds to soften.

2. Cut fake crabmeat sticks into manageable sizes (for example, four equal parts).

3. Break eggs, put them in a bowl, and beat well.

4. Add rice (after rewarming if cold) to the bowl mentioned in 3., and mix well.

5. Put salad oil in a frying pan, and put it on the stove.

6. When the pan is heated, add the contents of the bowl, and stir well so that each and every rice grain is coated with egg.

7. When the egg is set, add dried enoki and fake crabmeat sticks, and mix well.

8. Add salt and mix well again.

9. Finally, add soy sauce and sesame oil, mix quickly, and turn off heat immediately.

10. Transfer to a plate, and top with decoration such as long green onion.

Cooking time: 5 min. (3 min for preparations and 2 min. for pan-frying)

Congratulations on your winning dish! It sounds delicious. I have canned crab; do you think that it would be an acceptable substitution?

Hiroyuki said...

Molly: Thanks! Canned crab? What a great substitute for fake crab meat!
You can subsitute dried squid or shrimp for dried enoki.

お成功をお祝いします。 えのきちゃはんがおいしそうですね。 ひろゆきさんのレシピでこの料理を作りたいと思います。 

Hiroyuki said...

Okasan: どうもありがとうございます!
Okasan: Thank you very much! Dried shrimp or dried scallop can be a good substitute for dried enoki.
I often use canned tuna instead of fake crab meat.

Vivian: Thanks for your comment. Fresh enoki is cheapest around this time of year. Why not get some from the supermarket and try drying it today?
