Does anyone cook Japanese food on a regular basis? Or do you have any resources? I'm changing my diet, cutting away most of my sugar intake (I've been doing this in gradual steps) and am now ready to go one step further.

I've found I love Japanese food, it's fits in with most of what I eat already (except the fish, however, I'm starting to eat that slowly as well.)

I've bought some cook books (I'm fairly good at following directions, so I can't forsee much problem there) and am trying to look into night school classes (but I don't have much hope of finding much). However, I just wanted tips and suggestions and websites and such, if anyone has them. :D

Thanks ya'll!

I don't have any websites to give you, but I have the most awesome tonkatsu recipe. :) If you like tonkatsu...

You need:

Pork chops. I use the super thin cut ones, because it's easier than pounding regular ones to half their size (lazy cook, I know).
Flour
Egg
Panko
Oil for cooking
Tonkatsu sauce

Trim excess fat from the pork chops. If you use regular ones, pound them down to about 1/2" thick, and they're tender. The thin cut ones don't need pounding! Dip chops in flour, then egg, then cover with panko crumbs.

Deep fat fry for approximately 3-5 minutes, until crust is golden and pork is done. Or, if you don't have a deep fryer, fry about 3-5 minutes on each side in a skillet of hot oil :) You'll need plenty.

Slice into strips, serve with tonkatsu sauce & rice. Woot. Yummerific.
