Link: Japanese Chashu Pork Belly (for Ramen)


One of our community members submitted this recipe over the weekend, and we’re so happy she did!

Pork belly has definitely been having its moment (quite a long moment) and its recipes like this that remind us why.

Sous vide pork belly has been on the radar for most sous viders for quite some time, but this recipe tailors it for the use of ramen!

Although we’re sure any pork belly … Read more

Sous Vide Egg Yolk Misozuke

Not sure what “Misozuke” is? Well, it’s right in the name! Soy Miso is used in Japanese cuisine to make pickles that are called Misozuke. Traditionally, the pickles are made of veggies like cucumber or daikon. With sous vide, though, you can give your yolk a texture that you really can’t get anyway else–and you can take advantage of that texture by making it into a Misozuke! So miso-tycal.

Sous Vide Chawanmushi

Eating a chawanmushi (a traditional Japanese egg custard dish) is like eating a work of art. Using sous vide to make it ensures a nice smooth texture, while also infusing a deep depth of umami flavors. You can put your own spin on it by adding ikura or some other tasty seafood delights–it’s kinda like digging for treasure…except you probably won’t get rich…but you’ll definitely be happy.

Sous Vide Chirashi


Chirashizushi, or just Chirashi as it’s commonly known, means “scattered sushi”. Typically you’ll find a smorgasbord of raw fish and veggies on rice. So our very own Creative Director, Monica, decided to put her own sous vide twist on it! Plus, she made it portable by putting it on a rice cake! 

She threw a sous vide party and basically every sea creature was invited. Sitting atop her rice was sous vide scallops, sous vide shrimp, sous vide Read more

It’s always so exciting to see our Nomikus plugging away in the Noma kitchen! This isn’t the first time we’ve seen them (check it out here and here), and every time we see it, we have to pinch ourselves to make sure it’s reality. Always an honor. Here, the Nom is helping the Noma team make pine dashi in their Tokyo kitchen. We wish we were there to taste it!

Sous Vide White Miso Beef Ribs

This is a special recipe from guest blogger and longtime Nomiku supporter, @robq who said this is one his favorite dishes to make sous vide. Here’s what he had to say: 
I usually prefer my ribs with sauce that is more on the savory versus sweet…I thought a Japanese take on beef rib BBQ using a modified miso recipe from Nobu Matsuhisa’s famous miso black cod dish would be perfect. The heat from the red chili flake counters the sweetness Read more

Sous Vide Oxtail Udon
