I'm type of person who decides what to cook after I picked some random ingredients or what is available at the kitchen, just following intuition to sharpen my creativity. So, today I decided to challenge myself and try to cook something with sesame oil, actually this is really new for me, before I just use sesame oil for making sushi or gimbap. It all started from when I tidied up my food cabinet storage yesterday and found a bottle of sesame oil at the very back of my cabinet, even it is still in a sealed condition. I almost forget that I have this delicious seasoning oil.

So, here is the ingredients of what I cooked for lunch as you see at my instagram feed today. 
  • 2 sliced cow meat (sliced lengthwise into 5/8 inch of thickness)
  • Potato (sliced with a thickness 3/8 inch)
  • 3 medium Chinese cabbage (sliced or non, I did not slice my cabbage)
  • 1/2 Carrot (sliced with a thickness around 1/8 inch)
  • 1 Eggplant ( sliced round with a thickness of 1/2 inch)
  • 1 tomato (sliced into wedges)
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper ( or based on your needs)
  • Sesame oil
  • 1 cup of cooking oil
  • 125 ml water
  • 1/2 big lime
  • 2 Onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 Garlic, thinly sliced 
  • Parsley
All the ingredients can be made into 2 portion. Some of the ingredients are at the picture below. Really easy to found them right?

Now, we came to the cooking step. I divided the step into 3 part since each step needs different treatment.

First Part.

  1. Fried potato in cooking oil.
  2. Cook the potato until tender and lightly gold.

Second Part.
  1. Heat 2 tablespoon of sesame oil on a frying pan, then put onion, stir around half minute.
  2. Add the garlic, stir it again.
  3. Put all vegetables (Chinese cabbage, eggplant, carrot) and stir slowly 1 minute.
  4. Add water 75ml.
  5. Close the frying pan to steam the ingredients.
  6. Add tomato when the ingredients are half cooked. Steam again.

Third Part.
  1. Mix meats with ginger, salt, white pepper, coriander, lime juice. Leave on until you finished doing the first and the second part.
  2. Steam meats in 50 ml water until tender.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoon sesame oil to fry the meat until lightly brown.
And this is it, the final delicious result of my cooking today :) Use your parsley as garnish. I put my Chinese cabbage at the very bottom, can you see it? But I did not put my eggplant on the picture because it was not really photogenic :p 

Umh,,, I think next time I would like to steam my meat with the sesame oil as well besides all the spices instead of just frying it in. I really love the taste of my steam vegetables mixed with the taste of sesame oil, but I cannot taste the same for the meat. The meats tasted like all spices added when I steam them. I'm not saying that was not good, they are all taste super yummy but yes I just want to taste a little bit more of sesame oil from the meat.

So, happy trying, People :)
