Beef Terimayo~Japanese Style Hot Dog and Bake for the Quake

When the recent catastrophe happened in Japan, one of my blogger friends, Melody of Gourmetfury, decided to team up with Joy of Gourmeted for a collective bake sale to raise funds for the Japanese earthquake and tsunami relief. All the proceeds went directly to Doctors without Borders. If you are either a talented baker in the Lower Mainland in Vancouver or a kind sponsor, this will be an opportunity for you to contribute towards this good cause. Please check out Gourmetfury website for more details. I'd like to thank all my readers in advance for contributing to this worthy cause and have a great week ahead!

In line with this fund raising effort for Japan, I will be posting Japanese inspired recipes for this week. I will start with a uniquely Vancouver hot dog called Beef Terimayo. This is my take on the popular Japadog, the hot dog street vendor in Vancouver with Japanese flair toppings. The best selling item on their menu is the Beef Terimayo. It’s made of a beef hot dog, topped with teriyaki sauce, fried onion, Japanese mayonnaise, and sprinkled with crispy Nori strips. It’s an interesting combination indeed and yet, it works well with the tangier and slightly sweeter mayonnaise. Try making it!

Beef Terimayo-Japanese Style Hot Dog


6 Beef Hot Dogs, cooked as per packaged instructions
6 Hot Dog Buns, lightly toasted (if desired)
Teriyaki Sauce
1 Large White Onion, halved and sliced
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
A Pinch Of Sea Salt
Japanese Mayonnaise
Shredded Nori or Nori Strips


Sauté onion on medium to high heat with olive oil and a pinch of salt until soften and golden in color. Set aside.

Place the hot dog in the bun, top with Teriyaki sauce, fried onion, mayonnaise, and some Nori strips.


  1. I have teriyaki sauce at home. Can you recommend a good Japanese mayonnaise?

  2. @Anonymous: Kewpie is a well-known brand, but I have not tried. In fact, I will be posting the Japanese mayonnaise recipe this week.

  3. I make these at home too and I use the Costco beef hot dogs :) I also like to add bonito flakes which adds an interesting flavour to the hot dogs.

  4. Kewpie is a first-rate mayonnaise. Better than most of what passes for mayo in the grocery store.

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite!

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
