Japanese Mixed Rice with Simmered Shiitake
Japanese mixed rice cooked with simmered Shiitake and chicken is very delicious. Using the soup stock to cook the rice makes it even more delicious.
The rice tastes great cooked after soaking up the broth!
Shiitake Mushrooms and Chicken Stock Shiitake
80g ( 3-4 mushrooms )
Broth and water
Abura-age ( deep-fried tofu )
Chicken ( left over from the stock )
Rinse the rice, and place it in the pot of a rice cooker. Add the required quantities of stock and water, sufficient for cooking the 360-milliliter measurement of rice. Let stand for at least 30 minutes before cooking.
Thinly slice the stewed shiitake mushrooms and chicken. Finely chop the carrot, and cut the abura-age into one-centimeter squares. Finely chop the chicken.
Add the other ingredients and the seasoning (except for the shredded nori) to the rice cooker and stir. Cook as you normally would.
When the rice has finished cooking, mix everything and serve in bowls. Top with the shredded nori.
