Yakiniku with "Baby" Chima Sanchu
Well, I was going to wait until my chima sanchu leaves grow bigger and turn frillier, because I think that’s the way they should be. Also I was going to give them a little fertilizer or something. But when I checked on them this morning, after the heavy rain last night, a couple of the biggest leaves were almost gone leaving the leaf veins only! I really don’t know if rain brings worms or caterpillars (or slugs?) that eat leaves, but this kind of thing seems to happen almost always after a heavy rain here in my balcony garden. The same thing happened to my mizuna, too. Anyway I decided to go for yakiniku with the still-very-young chima sanchu leaves tonight before the worm(s) consume all of them.
So the dinner tonight was this yakiniku, wrapped in small, soft baby chima sanchu. Mmmm… it was OK, but I couldn’t tell the taste of the sanchu leaves at all. ;P
